Slow Food and Salhouse Broad

Slow Food Anglia are very pleased to be involved with several excellent food events at Salhouse Broad which is one of the beautiful Norfolk Broads in the east of Norfolk. The first events are being held on May 25th and 26th, are titled Farewell Spring and is a Wildfire Dining experience brought to the public by the Norwich based Guerrilla Dining Company and Mark Matless the Slow Food UK Chef Alliance coordinator.
Farewell Spring is the first in a four part series of dining experiences all to be held in beautiful and unique locations across the county of Norfolk. Each event will offer a taste of rustic, local and passionate cookery, mainly inspired by fire and storytelling and will be the first of this type of event to be held in East Anglia.
Mark Matless is an experienced chef and has been our Slow Food chef alliance coordinator for nearly two years and in that time has worked on several important projects for Slow Food in both East Anglia and other parts of the UK.

Salhouse Broad is located on the River Bure between Wroxham and Horning, in the heart of the Norfolk Broads. The 40 acre Broad is open to the public all year round, and there is an additional 20 acres of adjacent woodland, reedbed and grassland accessible to visitors. Salhouse Broad is part of the Broads Executive Area, a member of the National Park family, and also lies within Salhouse Conservation Area.
Salhouse is unique among the Broads both because of its origins, and its mosaic of habitats. It is commonly known that the Broads originated with medieval peat diggings, which flooded as sea levels rose and transformed into the network of rivers, wetlands and lakes we see today. Salhouse Broad, however, was not excavated for peat, but for another important resource of the time: gravel, probably deposited by the glaciers which extended to Norfolk during the last ice age. Now, Salhouse Broad has excellent examples of mature dry woodland, wet woodland, gorse scrub, open fen and reed bed, and open water, and draws a range of beautiful wildlife to its banks.
