Young and leading chefs input ideas into the menu for the Bristol24/7 Autumn Feast...
This week’s undoubted highlight is the Bristol24/7 Autumn Feast on Thursday, where guests at the Paintworks Event Space will enjoy a three-course banquet style dinner prepared by Square Food’s Barny Haughton and a team of 12 budding young chefs enrolled on the Bristol24/7 culinary programme.
The Vision conference takes place on Tuesday with a choice of 18 speakers and keynotes throughout the day, with organisers promising that “you can indulge in a feast of ideas and creativity from global thought leaders and visionaries which may shape the way you do business in our rapidly changing world”.
This week is also the six-day Bristol Festival of Economics – with speakers including Gordon Brown, Stephanie Flanders and Michael Lewis – and your last chance to catch Ice Road at Jacob’s Wells Baths which has been transformed for the last month and a half into Stalingrad of 1942.
