Mrs Paisley’s Lashings, the pop-up restaurant devised by chef Arthur Potts Dawson and environmentalist Jo Wood, will be appearing at this year’s Real Food Festival as it returns to Earls Court on 5-8 May 2011.

The restaurant, which first ‘popped up’ at Wimbledon in 2009, will host the festival’s VIP tent during the day and offer visitors a eco-friendly and sustainable dining experience in the evenings.

The festival will also see the return of the Real Food Theatre, with top chefs Giorgio Locatelli, Jason Atherton and Valentine Warner demonstrating recipes using locally produced and seasonal ingredients.

New features

New for 2011 are the cheese workshops from Kensington’s La Cave a Fromage, a Kids Taste Experience Tent, where children can learn how to make butter, shuck oysters and grow their own vegetables, and a Butchery Demo Theatre hosted by Allen’s of Mayfair.

Around 500 artisan food producers will pack the exhibition, all showcasing food and drink that has been sustainably and ethically sourced.

To coincide with this year’s festival, the organisers have launched a Real Food Cookbook, featuring 100 recipes from the likes of Raymond Blanc, Thomasina Miers, Cyrus Todiwala, Oliver Rowe and Jun Tanaka.

Tickets for the Real Food Festival 2011 are available now from​.
