The food from Pav and her crew is very good and served with joy. A lot of the fresh stuff is locally sourced and it all tastes amazing. Her crew work really hard and are totally into delivering good food.

Pav says: “Hi, I’m Pav a chef, baker and pastry fanatic. I’m an advocate for zero waste and sustainably sourcing local and seasonal ingredients. I trained with the River Cottage to complete a cooking apprenticeship in 2015 whilst working in an Italian restaurant and have since moved into baking. My newest venture is in pastry. I cook vegetarian/vegan food inspired by my Punjabi heritage and travels.

The cafĂ© will be serving delicious meals that feature fresh and seasonal produce, organic where possible. All food will be vegetarian/vegan with a focus on healthy living. Serving foraged herb dressings, fermented side dishes and nutritious whole grains. We will cater for gluten free diets and offer equally good substitutes. The bread for our meals will come from the festival! You have the opportunity to create and enjoy freshly baked goodies over the weekend. Be experimental and bold with your flavours. Give gluten free a go!”
