The Taste Adventure at the Big Feastival

Hundreds of Children and their families explored food and their 5 senses at the festival on Clapham Common, London. “It’s such a great way to help kids get excited about their food.” Jamie Oliver

Set up alongside the demonstrations from Chefs such as Peter Gordon, Gennaro Contaldo and Antonio Carluccio, The Taste Adventure enabled children to discover the excitement of tasting, sniffing and feeling food. They explored food by travelling through five interactive zones, each with a focus on one of our five senses: taste, sight, touch, smell and sound. Young Taste Adventurers received a passport complete with fun food cartoon characters and collected stamps as they made new food discoveries.

Jamie Oliver, founder of the Big Feastival said; “It’s such a great way to help kids get excited about their food and to pay more attention to it. The children’s enthusiasm always shines through, if you just give them the opportunity they’re genuinely fascinated by where their food comes from.”

A free of charge event, The Taste Adventure showcases the ethos of Slow Food in action. The Taste Adventure is delivered by voluntary Slow Food members and the Slow Food UK office team, with support from who offer recipes, videos, classroom materials, games and much more at
