Slow Food BBQ at Freedom Brewery

Some of you may have heard about Slow Food. It’s not about making casseroles but celebrating good, clean and fair food. Almost the opposite of fast food. On the 4th July me, Hubs, Clare from Seasoned Courses and a few other members finally hosted our first event at the great surroundings of Freedom Brewery near Abbots Bromley that had a fantastic views over Staffordshire. Edward and Susan Mayman, owners of Freedom Brewery, gave a tour of the brewery along with tasters explaining how their beers made and what makes then unique. After the tour we all tucked into a BBQ. It’s fair to say that we were very fortunate with the beautiful weather.

All of the food for the event was kindly supplied by some fantastic producers within Derbyshire & Staffordshire. The sourdough Baguettes Traditionelles had been picked up fresh from the The Loaf oven in Crich 2pm that afternoon; Denstone Hall Farm Shop used the pork supplied by Packington Pork to make a batch of delicious limited edition sausages made with Freedom Lager alongside a selection of  Cottage Delight sauces including their newly released Feta & Mint sauce and the Hot Butternut Squash Chutney  that were certainly favoured by many of the people who attended.

A huge thank you to everyone who helped to support the event. Slow Food UK launched their new website a few days ago which is easier to navigate. If you would like to be a member of Slow Food click here.
