For goodness bake

Plenty of food for thought on this weekend’s show…

Fresh from the first ever Newark Vegan Festival on Saturday 16 February, Rachel will describing some of the goodies that were on sale in the Ballroom of the Town Hall.

She’ll have news too of her cookery demonstrations at 11am, 1pm and 3pm on the day – if you’re reading this before Saturday, there’s still time for you to go along and see her in action! – and hopefully there’ll be a few minutes in the first hour of the show for her to share at least one of her recipes.

Later on, Jill Hesketh will be joining the Girls Around Town to talk about her bread-making courses – and she’s promised to bring some of her goodies to the studio too…

Jill be telling June and Rachel why and how she started Bake It and Take It, offering one and two day courses which, as the name suggests, give those taking part the opportunity to bake their own bread and then take it home to enjoy!

With just two clients joining her for each session, there’s plenty of time get hands-on with the dough and – with Jill’s expert guidance – make several different breads, from a white tin loaf to an Italian foccacia.

Tune in or listen online between 10am and 12 noon on Sunday for all this and more, including news of Jill’s new half-day pizza and tapas making courses and her plans to add cake and pastry making classes to the menu later this year…

Spilling the beans on a new festival for Newark

Rachel’s going to be in her element on next weekend’s show, when fellow vegan Shena Louise drops by to talk about a brand new event coming to Newark in a couple of months’ time!

Shena will be joining Rachel and June to spill the beans on the first ever Newark Vegan Festival which takes place in the stunning setting of The Ballroom at Newark Town Hall.

She’ll be looking back at the festival which took place in Lincoln today and looking ahead to what’s in store for visitors to the Newark festival between 10am and 4pm on Saturday 16 February

With everything from food and drink to talks and advice on offer, together with a little entertainment thrown in for good measure, there’ll be plenty to see and do – and no doubt plenty of tasty vegan treats to try and buy as well!

Tune in or listen online from 10am to 12 noon on Sunday to find out why and how Rachel and Shena embrace the vegan lifestyle and how, by organising these festivals and other events, Shena is supporting local businesses who share her passion for all things vegan…
