For five nights from tomorrow, Monday 26th to Friday 30th July, the people behind the flour with the power to save the world, Wildfarmed, will be taking over Silas Yard in Bethnal Green for a week-long residency to highlight how food really can fix the planet.
Thomas Straker, Chantelle Nicholson, Gaia Enria and Mitchell Damota, Will Lewis, and Chris Roberts are just a handful of talented chefs and bakers discovering the wonders of soil and regenerative farming practices to not only help reverse climate change, but to get more nutrition and flavour onto our plates.
Our most complex problems have the simplest solution: fix food, fix the planet. Wheat is one of the most common ingredients in the western diet and also one of the most intensively farmed crops, damaging our soils at an alarming rate. Wildfarmed is on a mission to turn things around and get as much wheat coming from thriving ecosystems as possible, so that every loaf of bread, slice of pizza, and every bowl of pasta can make a difference.
These talented chefs are making it all the more easy for you to do right by the planet, and will be bringing their incredible Wildfarmed creations to the table:
