Food Heroes this Saturday in Myatt's Fields Park

This Saturday, 20 October 2012, everyone is welcome to come along and learn how to make Mexican corn tortilla, guacamole, fresh salsa and sour cream in Myatt's Fields Park, Camberwell in Lambeth's Vassall Ward. Come along for the 10:30am start.

The event is part of the Food Heroes sessions which are held regularly in the park. The session is open to everyone – come along and help cook, or just turn up and eat at noon if you want to. You don’t need to be an expert cook, the sessions are designed so that people can just roll up their sleeves and help with chopping, stirring and eating!

If you have knowledge of a particular food would you be interested in sharing it with others? The park pay food heroes £40 to teach other people about the food they know and love. No experience is needed and you will be supported by food manager Fiorella Fronzi during the session. If you are interested in becoming a food hero please contact Fiorella Fronzi on fiorella.fronzi@myattsfieldspark.info.
