Family Feast and Fusion cook up a meal to remember!

Worcestershire County Council’s Orchard and Spring Vale Children’s Centre and celebrity chef Felice Tocchini held a family feast in Evesham on August 1. Approximately 40 families attended the event and families were treated to a locally sourced and freshly cooked feast to celebrate the Olympics.

As part of Love British Food 2012, Orchard and Spring Vale Children’s Centre was one of the lucky children’s centres in the country to be chosen to take part in a Family Feast, as part of the London 2012 Festival. Local celebrity chef Felice Tocchini and his son Dan Tocchini volunteered their time at the very last minute to help the children’s centre staff serve and cook a feast of strawberry and lavender lemonade, roast turkey terrine with summer vegetables and baked New York cheesecake with fresh local berries.

All ingredients were donated by local food producers and included Blue Gecko Plants and Spring Hill Farm in Pershore, Kanes Foods, Vale Fresco, GS-Fresh/Sandfields Farm, Evesham Vale Growers and Prima Fruit all based in Evesham and the Evesham Market Town Partnership also donated £275.

Karen Green, Orchard Vale Children’s Centre Manager said: “The feast went really well and families enjoyed the food and watching the chef’s at work. We are very grateful to Felice and his Son Dan for saving the feast and stepping in at the last minute to cook for us and to all the donations of ingredients we received. We really opened the families eyes to what lovely food can be created with fresh, local ingredients, some of which were also taken home on the day.”

Felice owns two award winning restaurants, Fusion Brasserie and Fusion too, both in the Evesham and Pershore area. He specialises in using fresh, local produce to create delicious food with an Italian Twist. He was very keen to make sure this feast was a success as he spends much of his time working with growers and producers as well as schools and colleges to help promote Worcestershire food and drink.
