Tooting Harvest Foodival
The 3rd annual Tooting Harvest Foodival which took place on the 19th September was a roaring success with crowds thronging in and around Mushkil Aasaan (a local charity for Asian families) all afternoon sampling delicious dishes cooked up by local restaurants Roti, Ambala Sweets, Lahore Karahi, Spice Village, Pooja, Rick’s, Al Mairage and Mirch Masala. Vegetables all provided courtesy of local food growers. Also available were smoothies from locally picked fruit and information about growing your own and food waste with Scotscape, Garden Partners, Fair Trade and Love Food, Hate Waste .... and 150 people created their own vegetable printed reusable bag – look out for them around Tooting over the coming weeks! A fiercely fought condiment contest judged by local chefs Volker and Rick was won by Jane Clare for her home made crab apple and chilli jelly - with Sally Hill as runner up.
