Pure body balance spent the weekend at The Organic Food Festival. The Organic Food Festival in Bristol is Europe’s largest showcase of all things organic, albeit noticeably smaller than last year’s festival. Now in its ninth successful year, the Festival demonstrates the growth of the organic movement and the increased recognition of the role organic production can play in creating a sustainable future. As you are well aware we at pure body balance are serious advocates of organic farming, foods and principles.
The Organic Food Festival gave displays of delicious organic food and drink, gorgeous skin care products, fabulous fashion, organic textiles, home design, tips on organic gardening (which was very valuable as we have just acquired good sized plot of land ready for cultivating), and some old school dancing with a pint of organic cider in one hand. Or as I did, sit and watch the others get drunk and dance. The atmosphere was warm, friendly and vibrant, an excellent day out for the family.
The Organic Food Festival provided us with the chance of meeting producers face to face, and watching cooking demonstrations with the option of tasting the results. Today’s menu cooked by Gill Meller River Cottage’s Head Chef and Hugh Fearnley-Whittingstall’s right hand man, consisted of Brains, tongue, spleen and liver. Not everyone’s cup of tea but extremely tasty never the less and very interesting to see a master at work. We also got to sample street food from Bristol’s top chefs and if you had children you could introduce your children to special taste workshops designed just for them.
The Organic Food Festival was organised by Dominic Phillips Event Marketing in association with the Soil Association. This meant that if you were a Soil Association Member, entrance to the festival was free!
If you have the chance next year, I strongly recommend going, it is a great day out for all.
