Paintworks kids

The Children’s Area

A dedicated children’s area will provide a wide range of activities designed to entertain and educate. It will give children, parents and teachers from different communities the opportunity to learn and be enthused by food and nature through planting workshops and hands on cookery classes.

Jo Ingleby 
Hands on workshops all day!

This Autumn's Love Food will be packed full of delicious things to do for all the family! Jo Ingleby (BBC Cook of the Year 2015) will be holding cookery workshops for children of all ages all day. The sessions are free but we do ask for a contribution if you can afford to pay. Children under 7 need to be with an adult, older children are welcome to bring a grown up if they want, but don't have to.

During these fun, hands on, sessions we will be making dishes using the best of local, seasonal ingredients. The sessions last approximately 40 minutes and will carry on through the day, just come along and join in, or sign up if we are busy.

Sessions will include:

Herb Butter making

English Apple and Cinnamon Crumbles

Roasted Squash Dip

Hazelnut Pesto

The wonderful ‘Oodle Doodle’ will be back too and will be hosting some superb autumnal craft activities for our younger visitors

We are delighted to have the talented folk at Mangostone on board. They are highly skilled sculptors and prop makers who will be performing some extraordinary pumpkin carving at Love Food. Bring a pumpkin with you and watch with wonder as it's transformed into a seasonal friend or foe!
