Celebrity chef Theo Randall is amongst those who will be giving demonstrations at GO! Organic, a new summer festival being staged in London, which will celebrate organic produce, sustainability and healthy lifestyles.
There will be more than a dozen live demonstrations in the Organic Kitchen, with top chefs sharing their pro tips and exclusive recipes for creating tasty, naturally-good food every day at the event, which will take place on September 8th and 9th at Battersea Park.
A former head chef at the legendary River Café which won its first Michelin Star under his direction in 1997, Theo now runs his own restaurant ‘Theo Randall at the InterContinental’ in London and is consistently voted one of the best Italians in the UK. He will discuss his passion for all things organic, while preparing a selection of his favourite dishes from his new book My Simple Italian.
Other new names on the menu include: Asian cookery expert and London Food Board member Angela Malik, who’ll be focusing on the importance of buying and using sustainably-sourced ingredients at home. And ‘plant-forward’ chef Jay Morjaria, founder of central London’s first meat free cooking school Sutra Kitchen.
They join Gelf Alderson, executive chef at River Cottage; Emily Watkins, head chef of The Kingham Plough; eco restauranteur Arthur Potts-Dawson; leading food writer and chef Rosie Birkett; and GBBO contestant Chetna Makan.
Chetna Makan, who will be showing how to make easy Indian street food, said: “Organic is more relevant than ever, appealing to everyone from foodies to families, and all those who are looking for food, as it should be, and the benefits that organic brings. I’m really looking forward to cooking at GO! Organic Festival and enjoying this festival with my family.”
