It is rare that three women organise an event of this scale with success, with aplomb, and with such support from the Birmingham foodie community. It's not a PTA meeting, nor has it been organised for personal gain; no, it's Rude Food Fiesta, starting at Edible Eastside, which is the hotly-anticipated event organised by Companis, which has had mouths drooling since the line-up was announced.
Rude Food Fiesta
[ADVERT]The women behind Companis - Kaye Winwood, Siân Tonkin and Sonya Russell-Saunders - are in favour of bespoke dining experiences that do away with the pretension, and invite hungry folk to indulge in their evocative events which speak to all of your senses.
Rude Food Fiesta is a food and arts event. Eyes, ears, and tastebuds are promised a feast from Pop Up Dosa, Honeycat Cookies, Bearwood Pantry, Albert Smith the Comedy Baker, and chef Lizzy Bean, and apparently their in-house baker Annabel de Vetten-Peterson of Conjurer's Kitchen will be baking a selection of bespoke cakes too.
To help it all go down well, Amy Seton of The Whisky Club and Carl Finn of The Church Inn are making whisky cocktails, but to make those drinks sound even more intoxicating, Beth Bellis will provide a classical quartet and Charity Shop DJ will be spinning a few records. You won't be the only one having a little dance however, doing it with a lot more finesse and style is artist Kate Spence who will be giving a pole-dancing performance.
I hear you ooh and ahh, Rude Food Fiesta promises to be an experience. Tickets cost £15, and can be bought here. Companis have really gone to town, so show your appreciation, and get your culture-starved self down to Edible Eastside.
