The Big Feastival One Big Menu announced

Festival grub will never be the same again as The Big Feastival unveils ‘One Big Menu’ - a gourmet festival menu developed by Jamie Oliver and chefs from some of the UK’s top restaurants, includingThomasina MiersGiorgio LocatelliPeter GordonAtul KochharCyrus Todiwala, and Cass Titcombe. Festival-goers will be able to indulge in the ultimate dining experience, sampling special dishes by visiting the top notch pop-up restaurants all in a festival field and best of all, it’s all for charity with event profits going to the Prince’s Trust and the Jamie Oliver Foundation.

Jamie Oliver Commented: “The One Big Menu represents some of the finest food that London’s restaurants have to offer. If you’re a real foodie or even if you’ve got just a passing interest in great food, I reckon there’s nowhere else this summer where you’d find a greater variety of better value, high quality food in one place and there’s no other way you could realistically eat a fantastic starter at Trinity, a delicious main course at Locanda Locatelli and finish off with a brilliant Vinoteca dessert – and hear good music.  The fact that the profits go to charity just adds to the uniqueness of The Big Feastival.”

Unveiled by the Chefs during a Twitter Party that gave the public a rare chance to ask the chefs their cookery queries, One Big Menu’s delectable dishes include starters from Canteen who will be serving up ham hock terrine with sourdough bread & picalilli; Trinity whose pop-up kitchen will have scotch Clarence Court egg with sage & onion served with cider mayonnaise and Redhook, who will serve popcorn shrimp.

Main courses come courtesy of Michelin starred Benares who are presenting a unique chicken tikka pie, the nation’s favourite dish…in a pie! Gourmet Burger Kitchen’s GBK west country 4oz beef burger and Portobello mushroom stack burger both served in a sesame sourdough bun with a choice of sauces are sure to satisfy the heartiest appetites. Wahaca will provide pork pibil tacos and summer vegetable tacos to entice; Cafe Spice Namaste will have organic rhug welsh mutton kofta with rice on offer; Barbecoa will be preparing pit smoked barbecue pulled pork shoulder and slaw; Fifteen will be serving fantastic smoked chicken; Providores will have NZ lamb sam; Locanda Locatelli will be concocting a piadina with parma ham, squacquerone cheese and rocket and a vegetarian piadina and newly announced restaurantAlbannach will be providing festival goers with their unique twist on delicious Scottish fare with mini haggis with neeps and tatties.

Puddings come from Vinoteca who will tempt all with a dark chocolate cremoso with fresh English raspberries, coconut & toasted almonds and another newly announced restaurant Cinnamon Kitchenwho will be preparing modern Indian delights serving a mango mousse with mango mint salad.
