Win Edinburgh Book Festival Tickets

Uncategorized | August 5, 2013 | By

I have two tickets to give away for a children’s foraging and cooking session on Monday 12th August at the Edinburgh Book Festival, with Fi Bird of The Forager’s Kitchen. 

Read my REVIEW of the Forager’s Kitchen with recipe for New Potatoes in Ramps and Lemon  I also made Honeysuckle Syrup from the book and it features in  Poached Apricots with Honeysuckle Syrup.

Fi Bird
is a graduate of St Andrew’s university, mother of six and a
past Masterchef finalist who has always had a passion for cooking.
She is self-taught, with an approach to food based on knowledge
of tight budgets and limited time. Campaigning for healthier
diets and for cookery teaching at Primary schools, she writes
articles and recipes extensively for newspapers and
magazines. She is a member of the Guild of Food Writers, and also develops recipes for Tern TV.

Fi and Dr Stephen Bird are the founders of Stirrin’Stuff,
which works in partnerships to educate children about food.
Stirrin’Stuff is committed to sustainable development and ethical
best practice. Dr Bird has recently completed a course in human
nutrition. In May 2008 Matthew Fort wrote that “Fi
acts like a frontier food marshal. She gallops from school to school,
from community to community, bringing with her experience, passion and
boundless enthusiasm.”
when reviewing the campaign for his Round Britian with a fork column in the Guardian Food Magazine.
