This week we were proud to welcome The Prince of Wales and The Duchess of Cornwall to Park Farm.
As well as watching, at close-hand, our cookery school and Rising Star apprentices in action, they chatted to staff and members of our team. The visit launched the second day of royal engagements in the south-west. Their Royal Highnesses have a long-standing interest in local, seasonal food and in supporting British producers.
While touring HQ, The Prince and The Duchess heard about the recently established Chefs’ School, which is instilling River Cottage values in a new generation of young professionals, and met Sam Lomas, winner of the Rising Star young chef award in 2013.
They also chatted with John Wright, our resident foraging expert and Charles got hands on with our Seashore Foraging course. The day ended with Prince Charles visiting our Plymouth Canteen and meeting the team there. Full story >
