On Saturday 20 September, Cultivate - Oxford's local food cooperative - would like to invite you to join us at our first ever feast at Oxford Town Hall. This lunchtime event will showcase the best of Oxfordshire’s homegrown food, prepared expertly by some of the most talented chefs in the county.

You will be treated to a delicious three course lunch, as well as interesting talks from local food producers, key food buyers within Oxford, and our local chefs. Come alone to meet interesting people and discover more about Oxford’s local food scene, or come with friends and book a whole table to yourselves! 

Over a three course lunch cooked by four of the city's best chefs, from such local haunts as  the Turl St. Kitchen and the Vaults & Gardens Cafe, you'll be able to sample an abundant array of different dishes made from locally sourced ingredients giving you a whistle-stop tour of the amazing food available in and around Oxford.

It's a chance to meet people, try some new culinary delights and above all to celebrate the diversity and vibrancy of the local food movement around Oxford in the best way we know how  a feast!

Alongside lunch, we will be taking suggestions for topics to be addressed at a more structured networking session later in the Autumn, which we are organizing in conjunction with Good Food Oxford. We will keep you posted of more details on this.

Our Maitre d' for the afternoon will be the wonderful Imran Mirza. Imran is heavily involved in the Oxford food community and is a very experienced waiter. He also happens to be an established actor who is part of Almost Random Theatre based here in Oxford! He is delighted to be helping host this event alongside the Cultivate team and will have with him a team of veg-tastic servers who will give you some curious insights into the dishes being served and will help the afternoon run smoothly.

All food will be vegetarian, with some vegan options. Seating is unreserved. We recommend larger groups looking to sit all together arrive early. Get in touch for more details on
