Seething Pasty and Craft bomb explode onto Surbiton Food Festival line-up
An edible town project, the Seething Pasty and a craft bomb will be exploding onto the scene at the Surbiton Food Festival.
The latest workshops have been announced for the lead-up to the event. Residents and traders are invited to sew and grow their own foods.
Templates for making stuffed felt food have been produced for craft enthusiasts.
The creations will all go towards a giant craft bomb set to explode over the streets of Surbiton.
Businesses and families are invited to fill a recycled platter with home-grown vegetables, such as beetroot, peas, broad beans and kale, for the ‘edible town’ project.
It begins with a ‘paint your own palette’ workshop in April.
To top it all, the Seething Pasty competition calls on the community to create a new ‘legendary’ village pasty.
Residents are encouraged to pick up their ingredients from C.D. Jennings and Son butchers.
The competition will take place during the Village Fete on Sunday May 12.
The festival will be held in Surbiton town centre from May 4-19. The activities include: May 4 – The Great Food Fight. May 5 – Sardine Festival.
May 11 and 12 – Village Fete and Stalls in St Andrews Square. May 18 – Farmers Market and Sports Day and Teddy Bears’ Picnic in Victoria Park.
May 19 – Surbiton Sunday Brunch.
