Easter fun for families and foodies at Belmont Forum
Belmont Forum will host a huge array of activities in the lead up to and during Easter, including a weekend fresh food market, cooking demonstrations, free activities for children and a visit from the Easter bunny.
With the theme of 'Meet Up Eat Up', the spotlight will be firmly on fresh food, fun, family and friends between Saturday, 13th April and Tuesday, 23rd April. Belmont Forum is the ideal destination for socialising with the kids, picking up a host of recipe ideas and shopping for last minute Easter eggs.
For the foodies, chef Sophie Budd from Taste Budds Cooking Studio, who has worked with the likes of superstar chef Jamie Oliver, will be creating some of her favourite sweet and savoury dishes in a series of live cooking demonstrations. She will host the demonstrations as per the schedule below:
Spiced Flatbreads with Tasty Tzatziki on Saturday, 13th April at 12pm
Carrot Cake Pancakes on Wednesday, 17th April at 11am
Crumbed Whiting on Thursday, 18th April at 12pm
Hot Cross Bun French Toast on Saturday, 20th April at 11am
Chocolate Truffle Eggs using leftover Easter Eggs (there won't be any of those in my house) on Tuesday, 23rd April at 12pm.
