Foodie Heaven with Red Radish, Jamie Oliver and the 2015 Big Feastival!
When we first got the call from IMG, a global leader in sports, fashion and events around the world, asking if we wanted to quote for the backstage artist and crew catering at one of their festivals we were more than a little excited, but once the details emerged that it was for Jamie Oliver and Alex James’s Big Feastival in the beautiful Cotswolds we almost couldn’t contain ourselves in our desire to cook in the same field, never mind feed, some of these uber-talented culinary geniuses and hardworking crew.
It might have taken a couple of months of toing and froing, careful menu planning and countless emails but late yesterday afternoon (in Minsk!) we got the perfect start to the weekend (not that we ever get one of those of course!) when we finally received the email confirming Red Radish had been chosen as the official crew and artist caterer for ‘The 2015 Big Feastival’.
When Jamie and one of his mates decided to get into festivals it was only ever really going to focus on one thing. Food! Food, glorious food (albeit it with great music) and being part of that is all a bit of a dream come true for Red Radish and a pair of PROPER foodies like us.
So picture the scene… Jamie Oliver, the legend that is Raymond Blanc, Masterchef’s Monica Galetti, Ashley Palmer-Watts, the executive head chef for the Fat Duck group (Yes THAT FAT DUCK!!!) and a host of other wonderful chefs and foodies with delicious ingredients all cooking up a storm on the same beautiful idyllic farm as Red Radish and our very own team of extremely talented chefs.
Some might say that the pressure is well and truly on with this one, but we love a bit of that anyway and literally can’t wait to get cooking for ’em all!
