Almost 50 catering students from New City College will be taking part in the one-day ‘field to table’ event on June 19 and 20, which is run by charity Root Camp UK.

The students, aged 16 to 21, will spend half the day taking part in activities such as foraging for food and planting a herb garden around Cottage Farm, Blakenham, near Ipswich. The other half of the day will be spent working on dishes with professional chefs, including 21-year-old Samson Ayoade who is a graduate of both Root Camp and New City College.

Root Camp UK runs residential field-to-table cookery schools for young people in the UK. Its aim is to encourage healthy eating and cooking in young people from all backgrounds by teaching kitchen skill and working with produce at its source. They spend time in the kitchen and on other food-related activities.
