The 2011 Real Food Festival is a festive mix of traditional Christmas food and gastronomic goodies. Come along to the Southbank for twinkling riverside fairy lights, carol singing, hot mince pies and a warming spiced mulled wine or two. Take home all the food and drink you’ll need to make the perfect Christmas with over 40 producers offering wild game, hams and charcuterie, beautiful cheeses, delicious chutneys and pickles and Christmas treats for all your chocoholic friends.
Make a day of it, pick up a few tips from Angela Malik’s Pop Up Cook School, which will be taking place once a month starting on 16 December. And enjoy ‘Food busker’ John Quilter’s cooking demos, witty banter and lively discussions. More info: www.realfoodfestival.co.uk
