From starters to mains, sides to what to drink, local food / beverage producers, restaurants & Food GRP researchers have been sharing the stories behind their feast delicacies to showcase what's on the plate in Coventry & Warwickshire. Check out our 'Feast Food Festival' introduction and the weekly themed videos we produced with food blogger Ellen Manning and cameraman Dan Watts who filmed and interviewed on location throughout the region at the end of 2021.
Unfazed by Covid-19 complications, we held an event featuring taster pots of vegan bean dishes from around the world, showcasing our locally grown haricot beans. You can read about the event, watch a recording and access some fantastic bean recipes here.
A two part event (Teaser) which built on the medieval custom of church ales at St John the Baptist Church, Berkswell, co-hosted with the My-Parish network based in Warwick's History department.
