A cookery school will take place at Eat: Weston in September.


Eat: Weston is just over two weeks away and there are set to be a host of new additions welcomed to the new-look festival, including a chance for Westonians to get involved.

The festival will take place in High Street on September 16 from 9am-4pm, with local producers from the South West will showcasing their food and drink to all of Weston’s foodies.

Eat: Weston made its debut on April 8 this year but it is returning ahead of schedule to replace the Weston super Food Festival, which was cancelled back in June.

This time, there is going to be a chance for keen cooks to get their hands dirty and create some food of their own.

The iDesign Interiors Cookery School will take place throughout the day.

Chrissie Godfrey, from pop-up supper club Delicious, will host four workshops which are suitable for adults and children aged seven and over.

The free classes will include making two dishes – one will be an Indian starter and the second will be a North African tagine spice mix with mixed vegetables.

They will take place at 10.30am, noon, 1.30pm and 3pm in the iDesign interiors showroom, opposite The Playhouse Theatre, in High Street.

You will then be given the recipes to take home and have the opportunity to taste the dishes made by fellow foodies.

Chrissie told the Mercury she hopes to teach people how to cook tasty, vegetarian dishes.

She said: “There are some great restaurants in Weston and its surrounding area, but the offering for vegetarians is generally limited.

“As a lifelong passionate cook, I wanted to show people just how amazing and versatile the range of vegetable-based dishes can be.

“The idea of pop-up dining took off in our major cities, wended its way to the West Country, and I’ve been popping up in different venues ever since.”

Louise Mitchell, who is a design consultant at the iDesign venue added: “We are delighted to be sponsoring and hosting the cookery school with Eat: Weston.

“Our showroom in Grove Village is brimming with top-quality appliances.

“We are looking forward to showcasing them at the free workshops.”
