Craft Guild of Chefs launches outdoor larder

The Craft Guild of Chefs announced at Hotelympia that it is inviting the industry to explore Britain's "outdoor larder" with the launch of the Universal Cookery & Food Festival.

By taking a closer look at seasonal produce and wild food, the event aims to enhance the culinary knowledge of chefs and caterers to farmers and growers.

Craft Guild committee member Lee Maycock said: "We looked at what chefs would really want to see at the moment, and, rather than a stuffy conference, we've gone for a wild food study trip.

"We plan to stage foraging tours, workshops and even a suppliers/farmers market to give those who attend an insight into what can be achieved from local and regional produce to deliver great food solutions."

The event will take place at Painshill Park in Cobham, Surrey, on Wednesday 12 September.
