Thanks to the strong support of our wonderful network we can continue our crucial work on saving Britain’s edible biodiversity. Please welcome our brand new addition to our Forgotten Foods programme – Walthamstow Yellow Cress and Norfolk Grey Chicken.

Walthamstow Yellow Cress: A variety of cress native to the East End of London. This variety was discovered in the 1970s growing wildly in an East London reservoir. It has it’s origins in Northern Scandinavia but is thought to have come over to the UK on the feet of a migrating bird.

Norfolk Grey Chicken: A rare breed chicken which originated in Norwich. This distinctive looking chicken, which was at one point thought to be extinct, is known for its superior flavour as well as good laying ability.

We now have a total of 71 Forgotten Foods in our UK Ark of Taste and we are always on the look out to add new products. These products are part of Slow Food’s International Ark of Taste which currently lists 1333 threatened products worldwide.
