About the workshop

Sara will introduce us to the basics and culture of bento and the 5 colours, flavours and qualities in typical Japanese food. With simple techniques, tips and tricks she will guide us through her own take on bento – fresher, quicker and simpler to make, plant based and with a fusion of east-west flavours. Together, we will make a range of dishes from Sara’s book Bento Power: Brilliantly Balanced Lunchboxes before assembling and eating our own bento, with some practical tips on styling and food photography. Most of all we will have lots of fun!

The recipes are vegan, gluten free and free from refined sugars. If you have food allergies please get in touch. We provide bento boxes for you to use on the day but you can also bring your own.

COOKING THE BOOKS – A BOOKISH SUPPER SALON EXTRAVAGANZA

Food writing is an art form. Some say food writing is the new porn. Food porn is big business. Come and meet the experts: two chefs, a cookery writer and a recipe writer and food photographer. Bring along your favourite recipes to share, or be ready to tell us about your most reassured cookery book, or culinary disasters.

Enjoy a gorgeous meal over a glass of wine – meet new friends and old, and have a laugh with us over those I Can't Believe I Cooked That moments.

The Guests: Sara Kiyo Popowa, Andrew Kay, Kanthi Thamma, Troy Wear

Shiso Delicious x Clearspring: Organic Harvest Rainbow – Live Happening
Sep
8
to Sep 9

Shiso Delicious x Clearspring: Organic Harvest Rainbow – Live Happening

Come watch, and help capture, Sara of Shiso Delicious as she join forces with Clearspring to create a huge rainbow out of seasonal produce and Clearspring foods at Go! Organic Festival.

When: Saturday 8 September, Sunday 9 September 

Rainbow build and capture: Saturday 12am–2pm

Where: Clearspring Japanese Tea Garden at Go! Organic Festival, Battersea Park, London (2 for 1 festival ticket here)

What: Sara will build a 'rainbow' (much like the one in the image, just a lot bigger!) using seasonal organic vegetables donated by suppliers of the festival. The process will be captured as camera stills from a bird's eye perspective (again, much like in this image) to create an animation.

In Clearspring's Tea Garden you can also try an authentic tea ceremony, wear a yukata (summer kimono), fold some origami or eat delicious hot food! #plantbased
