Leading chefs cook a up storm for Farm Africa

Last Sunday some of Bath’s most fervent foodies descended on Global Gourmet, a Farm Africa fundraiser and one of the stand out events at this year’s Great Bath Feast.

The day was put together by long-term Farm Africa supporter, Silver Compass – a leading bespoke travel specialist based in Wiltshire.

And to make the day a real celebration of some of the finest aspects of global travel and cuisine, the company brought together some of its favourite travel partners with some of the South-West’s leading suppliers of global food and wine.

Adding additional lustre to the day were cooking supremos Hywel Jones and Sam Moody.

The leading chefs are two of the brightest stars in the South-West’s flourishing restaurant scene. And the Bath public were soon streaming through the doors, eager to watch the two top chefs displaying their gastronomic skills.

Hwyel whipped up a stunning dish of scallops with girolles and bacon, while Sam turned out a stunningly autumnal dish of partridge in an escabeche.

The day was a great success with visitors sampling delicious food from some of the world’s most alluring destinations.

Special thanks of course, to Hywel Jones and Sam Moody for lending the day some real star quality. And huge thanks too to Silver Compass’ travel partners and the food suppliers who all helped make Global Gourmet such a hit.

Farm Africa is as grateful as ever to Silver Compass for its unstinting support. A very healthy £570 was raised by Global Gourmet which will support Farm Africa’s life-changing work to end hunger in eastern Africa – for good.
