Selfridges have an exciting and unusual programme of events on until October focused on bridging the gap between maker and consumer. Because we all love food, but do we know where it comes from? As the name suggests you can ‘Meet the Makers’ – the artisans and foodies who have made their passions into a full time business and are now selling their goodies in the Selfridges Food Hall. Taking things back to basics, Selfridges is also becoming the first retailer to stock beautifully packaged foraged ingredients and wild foods for those who want to become slightly more adventurous cooks but are not quite willing to swap the food hall for the local wood.
In addition to cooking demonstrations and, our favourite, food tastings are a series of dinners hosted by top chefs including James Lowe from Lyle’s, in partnership with The National Trust. Lee Westcott’s six course dinner created from foraged ingredients grabs our attention, as does Lottie Muir (The Cocktail Gardener) and her cocktail masterclass. A really exciting celebration of great food.
