Anglia Factors take to the stage at Latitude 2018

Long known for bringing the best live music to Suffolk, this year’s Latitude Festival will also bring the best chefs, street food pioneers, and celebrities from the culinary world into Henham Park. And great performers need the best kit to perform on, so who better to provide the kitchen setup for all the food preparation demos than Anglia Factors?

It’s music to a food lover’s ears

Latitude is moving away from your typical festival fare of burger vans and going for a culinary masterclass that aims to inspire, improve the health of, and inform people about new and exciting ways to prepare their meals. Acts taking to the on-stage Anglia Factors Kitchen include:

  • Meera Sodha, recent Guild of Food Writers award winner, will be spicing things up as she delves into India’s diverse cuisines
  • World renowned and award winning investigative food writer Joanna Blythman will be chatting with Irish food writer John McKenna about the ins and outs of the food industry
  • Honey & Co’s Sarit Packer and Itmar Srulovich will be talking about their experience as chefs and their new book Middle Eastern Recipes
  • Yum Bun, Up In My Grill and Club Mexicana will be guesting and performing
  • Chris Youngwill take to the mic to discuss the Real Bread Campaign with leading bakeries, and discuss the almost forgotten art of real bread making
  • Chocolatiers Lynn Lockwoodand David Greenwood will be satisfying the sweet tooth of visitors when they present a reminder of how chocolate should taste… and of course the correct way to taste it.

And there’s plenty of other culinary adventures to enjoy whilst on site.

The Danish Quarter is transferring Copenhagen to Suffolk and giving 30 lucky foodie festivalgoers every day the chance to learn how to bake, Danish style. They’ll learn the history and methods, get to grips with various grains, and bake a loaf of bread each, under the watchful tutorage of The Bread Station’s Christoffer Hruskova. After they’ve spent the next day creating festival mischief, they can come back and collect their now proven bread. Book a place here.

London based Street Feast has gained a reputation in the capital for turning abandoned spaces into unusual eating and drinking venues. And they’re descending on Latitude with around 80 vendors, to call time on typical festival ‘fast food’ and replacing it with something healthier. And there’s plenty of choice to suit every taste, from vegan to super-carnivore.

Don’t tell anyone, but The Kitchen Cabinet, BBC Radio 4’s cookery show, will be recording from a secret location on site. Critic and Masterchef judge Jey Rayner presents the show, and will be offering plenty of useful morsels to help your own culinary efforts, as well as inviting Latitude attendees to ask an expert panel about their kitchen conundrums.
