Our friends over at Made In Roath have got an exciting new project to announe … the Roath Feast! Here’s what they’ve got to say about it…
Welcome to Roath Feast, a new project from madeinroath. We’ll be working until the 20 June next year (the Summer Solstice) on a series of skill sharing events, based around food. Think baking, pickling, canning, juicing! Whatever the produce and people of Roath want to throw at us.
There will be 10 monthly skill sharing events, where we learn from each other about creating and sharing food, as well as creating the crockery, linens, and decorations. At the end of the year we’ll have a big communal meal, to celebrate the community and creativity of Roath. With each skill share we will build a larder for the feast, and a bank of skills in the community.
Our next event is PICKLING, and will be held at g39 gallery, which is behind the Earnest Willows pub, just off city road, on the 22 July, 2 – 6pm. We are looking forward to learning from local pickler Julie, but we’re also hoping to find some more local pickle fanatics who will come and share a recipe! Do you have a knack for pickling eggs? Could you teach us how to preserve a lemon? Get in touch and let us know!
The skill sharing events are free and open to all. If you have some jars and any specialist ingredients that would be welcome! Otherwise just drop in and learn a new skill.
Also, if you were lucky enough to get a free plant at Made in Spring, send us your pictures so we can see how they are doing! And start weighing those potatoes, we’re sitting on some great prizes for you…
