2016-04-30 Ireland: Sustainable Food Festival

Sustainable Food 

Description of the project offered: 

The Sustainable Food Festival will be held at various locations throughout Europe this summer (2016). Organised by the Sustainable Food Systems Consortium and by Fricot Editions (the traditional foods imprint of Small World Publishing), the festival will celebrate indigenous produce and traditional food, and highlight sustainable food security.

Each country festival will highlight the history of regional food in the specific area and emphasise the diverse food culture of the country. There will be cookery demonstrations and food tastings, cookery classes for young and old in the traditional methods and techniques used for centuries to make iconic regional products, food quizzes to heighten awareness of indigenous produce and traditional food, and lectures on the various aspect of sustainable food production and security. Cafes, diners and restaurants will host sittings of the traditional dishes. Bakeries will promote their traditional breads, cakes, confections and pastries. Farmers, fishers, growers and traditional food artisans will sell their produce and products. 
The constant themes at the different locations will focus on the unique indigenous methods of production in the context of People Place and Produce - our promotional device for highlighting sustainable food production. Multimedia will allow those with a keen interest to take away material as stories about indigenous foods and recipes of the traditional foods. 
The overall theme will be Sustainable Food Security.
