This is a sponsored post from London’s Borough Market.
Borough Market are delighted to be taking part in the second Disabled Access Day on Saturday 12th March.
Disabled Access Day is a nationwide initiative run by Euan’s Guide to highlight venues across the UK who offer accessible events for the disabled community.
First off, the Market will be hosting a live cookery demonstration with MasterChef 2015 finalist Tony Rodd, with an interpreter on hand to provide BSL for the deaf community.
Tony will be showcasing a winning menu without the pressure of MasterChef judges being present, bringing along his passion for playing with texture, aroma and presentation.
Join him at the demo kitchen in the Market Hall between 12-2pm on Saturday 12th March, you can take away recipes to try at home and tasters will be available.
His menu includes:
- Chicken liver parfait with garlic toast and an onion chutney
- Warm salad of roast trout, crab and samphire with crab sauce
- Orange panna cotta with cardamom shortbread biscuits and burnt orange segments
In the pod next door, regular demo chef Celia Brooks will be running a blindfolded tasting activity, showing visitors how the taste of Market ingredients’ is altered when you can’t rely on your sight.
Go along and challenge yourself to guess as many Market delights as you can. This will be running simultaneously between 12-2pm.
No need to book, just turn up!
