Terra Madre Meal - The Storyteller's Supper. 10 December 2021

Terra Madre Meal - The Storyteller's Supper. 10 December 2021

The Storyteller’s Supper at AppleTeme will feature Taffy Thomas (MBE), once story-teller laureate, recounting tales associated with the food and drink that will be served, that have special resonance and provenance. On a night when many other Slow Food groups from all around the world will be eating together in a convivial manner, we also will be sharing some of the stories and food, both local and from places further afield. This promises to be a truly magical evening, something a little different for Ludlow’s Terra Madre meal.

The recently published ‘The Storyteller’s Supper’, written by Taffy, is beautifully illustrated and includes foody tales, recipes and a foreword by Slow Food founder Carlo Petrini (Taffy is an old friend of Petrini). The evening will be a celebration of from where our food comes, with a hearty meal to match the tales. There will be specially chosen live acoustic musical accompaniment which will bring the evening to life.
