We visited Flavourfest 2022 at the Inspire Centre of Calderdale College and were impressed by the displays brought to us by local businesses!
The weather was suitably accommodating for the several local traders, businesses, craftspeople and food makers of Calderdale. There was a variety of stalls of foods from many corners of the world, hand crafted products, business start-ups as well as established organisations.
We said hello to Anila and Alison who were at The Outback Stall, showcasing some of their own honeycomb, elderberry cordial, preserves and salad, among other things.
These were all produced by things grown at The Outback at Jubilee Children’s centre. The ladies briefly spoke about intercepting unspoiled food that would have otherwise been wasted to landfill and about their bee keeping project, for which they plan an open day, stay tuned for more info!
And a personal thanks from the North and East blog, for saying that you read us, we hope to keep informing you!
We made another stop at JFood FitBox, an initiative to produce tasty, sustainable, responsibly sourced healthy meals.
There was a broad selection of ingeniously artistically presented food, dairy free alternatives and vegetarian options. A personal favourite, the box in which the food was packed was made out of paper!
Flavourfest was an impressive, vibrant event that gave us a unique opportunity to sample different cuisines, learn about what is happening around us and admire the creativity of local traders. Roll on Flavourfest 2023? We hope so!
