Foodival 2009 Photos

Tooting Harvest Foodival 2009 was a great success! Well done to everyone. Here are some photos of Saturday's home grown vegetable collection at Mushkil Aasaan followed by the Food Walk and Food Fete on Sunday. Quite a crowd enjoyed free samples of a variety of locally grown and cooked dishes courtesy of Tooting's restaurants and, in scenes reminiscent of the pied piper, followed the magic table of sustainability up the High St!

Only 10 Days Till Foodival!

The Tooting Harvest Foodival is next Sunday! Hurrah! Here’s the timetable for the day – we really hope you can join us.

12 Noon to 2 pm: Food Walk (starts at Al Mirage, 215 Upper Tooting Rd)
Tooting’s High Street restaurants are cooking up dishes in their own inimitable styles using ingredients grown and supplied by local people - which you can sample on the day.

2pm – 4pm Foodival Fete: Fircroft School
The Food Walk ends in a Food Fete - where food & sustainability related events for all the family run from 2pm. Bring your bike to Ting Ting Tooting’s cycle repair station, try a fruit kebab, learn about urban bee-keeping, or enter your home-made crumble in the Great Tooting Pudding Competition.

Yes, you can win a £30 organic food voucher! All you have to do is cook, bake or borrow a cake or pud to enter into the Great Tooting Pudding Competition? Then maybe bribe the judges! At least one ingredient must be local (south London = local).

Plus, why not pledge your surplus fruit, veg or herbs and see them feature in a dish made by one of Tooting's finest eateries? Bring your produce to the party – either to the drop off point on Saturday 26 September between 10am and 1pm at Mushkil Aasaan, 220 - 222 Upper Tooting Road. Or to the fete on Sunday afternoon – where we can rustle up some lovely grub on the spot!

Call Giles on 07738 928 215 or Claudia on 0788 8833 525 for more details, or if you’ve got some veg to pledge.
