The Bristol branch of south-west cookshop chain Kitchens is hosting a three-day foodie event next month.
From Thursday September 11 to Saturday September 13, shoppers will have the chance to sample and buy local produce and see demonstrations by cookery schools and a Michelin starred restaurant. The companies taking part will host stalls in-store, most of which will be operating from 10.30am to 4.30pm.
On Thursday, the list of participants comprises Hart’s Bakery (an artisan baker based near Temple Meads station), Zara’s Chocolates from award-winning chocolatier Zara and culinary demos from local Michelin-starred eatery Casamia Restaurant and the Little Kitchen Cookery School. Visitors will also be able to browse Heavenly Hedgerows’ range of award-winning jellies and jams, sample Bristol Tea Company’s speciality organic and loose leaf teas and buy locally-made gluten-free jams and chutneys from The Great Gadsby.
Friday’s attractions will include examples from The Artful Chocolatier, which offers a combination of art and chocolate, Timmy’s Chillies (50%-plus fruit marmalades and jellies with chilli, made near Bath), Amy’s Chocolates (hand-made chocolates), Bath Harvest Oils (award winning rapeseed oil from Wilmington near Bath) and cake decorating and sugarcraft lessons from the Custom Cake Shop.
The roll call for Saturday is Bristol Bakehouse which will demonstrate making and decorating cupcakes, The Artful Chocolatier, Timmy’s Chillies, local artisan baker Crust & Crumbs and Devilled Egg Cookery School.
The Bristol branch, which opened in 1970, is the oldest of Kitchens’ three stores. The Bath store launched in 1979 and the Cardiff store made its debut in 1990.
