Future Foods at Wakehurst

We have prepared a very special menu for this year’s festival of science at Wakehurst Place, home of the millennium seed bank.

The theme for this year is Future Food, We are working with Kew’s head of science Paul Wilkin to, cooking pan-African carbohydrate crops which Kew are researching as potential sustainable and climate adaptive crops for the UK.

We’ll be cooking maize meal and chakalaka from South Africa, yam balls with fried okra from Nigeria, peanut, pepper and chilli sauce from Gambia, injera pancakes with berbere spiced peas from Ethiopia, and stewed lupin beans and lemon chard with ancient grain sourdough bread from Egypt.

The recipes can be downloaded here:
