Head to the festival and embark upon a voyage of discovery and exploration, learning about all aspects of the journey of food – from field to fork.

Elizabeth David was a legendary British food and cookery writer. During the mid-twentieth century she has a huge influence on British home cooking, reinvigorating and revitalising the public's passion for cooking with her books about traditional British dishes.

There will be veggie options available, too – please email spike@cookingco.co.uk when you make your booking to let them know if you're a vegetarian – otherwise they won't be able to cater for you!
