Appetite Festival Launch 2013

These photographs are of the Waltham Forest Appetite Festival Launch event in the Town Square in Walthamstow on 1st June 2014.  Several participants in the Festival were asked to stage a dining flash mob and lay out samples of the food they’d be producing for the Festival.  It was great fun, but the biggest buzz for me was meeting one of my all-time food heroes, Gennaro Contaldo, who officially opened the Festival.  He loved my homemade porchetta in focaccia and said it was “the best porchetta this side of Rome!” – praise indeed!
