Bristol24/7 and Square Food Foundation announce the second seasonal feast

By caragh jones, Wednesday May 9, 2018

Bristol24/7 and Square Food Foundation are beyond excited to announce the second seasonal feast; all about young chefs, live cooking, great ingredients and this time as part of Bristol Food Connections.

Following November’s inaugural Autumn Feast at Paintworks Events Space, we will be inviting our band of young chefs back to the kitchen to create an interactive street-food-style experience for guests on the 15th June at The Station, Bristol.

We hope this will be the first in a series of paid catering events for our team of young chefs, utilising their new-found skills.

Over the next month, look out for online content sharing a closer look at what the young chefs have been up to since the Autumn Feast last November as we gear up for the Summer Feast in June.

Tickets for the Summer Feast are available via Bristol Food Connections.

How can you get involved?

Purchase a ticket for the Summer Feast and invest in the next generation of chefs. All profit will be invested into the second phase of Bristol24/7 and Square Food Foundations young chefs programme. This is a 12-week accredited course starting in September 2018, targetting 16-25-year-olds.

Barny Haughton, who will be leading the 12-week programme, says: “Bristol’s restaurant scene moves quickly – new places open every day. But the question I’m asked most often is ‘Where are all the chefs?’. Our new and unique vocational programme extends beyond simple home-cooking to fill this gap.

“Starting September 2018, How to be a Chef is a comprehensive 12-week course that will provide real skills to young people who aren’t at work or in other education. Over three months, they’ll get an understanding of how the food industry works and an opportunity to work in some of Bristol’s best restaurants, food producers and artisans.”

To register your interest in the course, get in touch with eloise@squarefoodfoundation.co.uk. Enthusiasm and commitment are more important than qualifications or academic success.
