The second in the series of Foodie Bugle Lectures is going to be held on Friday 22nd June 2012 in the beautiful barns of Thyme at Southrop Manor Estate, near Lechlade, Gloucestershire, GL7 3NX.
We are inviting six of the prominent food artisans, writers, chefs, cookbook authors and teachers that we have featured in the last thirteen editions of The Foodie Bugle to each deliver 30 minute talks to a foodie audience, followed by a 15 minute Question and Answer session. They will talk openly about their work, what sort of business or activities they have set up or books they have written, what challenges they have faced, what they hope to achieve in the future, what legacy they would like to leave behind and, if they could turn back the hands of time, what they would have done differently if they had known then what they know now.
This sharing of knowledge and bringing together of collaborative minds will enable people from all parts of the food and drink industry to meet, learn, ask questions, share information, pitch ideas and be inspired by one another in a friendly and open environment.
The talented food photographer Pascale Cumberbatch of Extra Relish will be taking photos during the event, and blogs and articles will be written about the event.
The Thyme team will welcome you all with teas, coffees, biscuits and cold drinks and we will all enjoy a delicious, seasonal home grown lunch cooked by the cookery school Chefs Daryll Taylor and Marj Lang.
If you wish to purchase tickets please click here. The lectures are the only financing source of The Foodie Bugle online magazine, which takes no advertising and receives no sponsorship, but gives a worldwide publishing platform to hundreds of artisans, growers, food writers and photographers for free.
We look forward to welcoming you there.
