DATE:20th July 2023
LOCATION:Eli’s – Rose + Crown, Huish Episcopi

Join us on the Somerset Food Trail for an unforgettable adventure through multiple courses of food and drink including a myriad of foraged, reclaimed and rediscovered ingredients!

A communal multicourse meal, conceived as an edible conversation between two contemporary food artists. 

Through This Food is Rubbish, Cherry Truluck (based in Frome) and Annalee Levin (Huish Episcopi) explore food that is overlooked, misunderstood and wasted in the 30 miles of Somerset countryside that lies between them.  In this unique artist-led event, they seek out the roots of wastefulness in our food systems and celebrate the practices that are asking “how might we think, eat and farm differently if we took a zero waste approach to food and drink?” 

This is the second collaborative event of the two artists, who met as residents of Delfina Foundation’s Politics of Food programme and have worked as professional chefs for major restaurants and arts organisations. Both make work which deals with climate transition and the way it is impacted by food’s role as a tangible, cultural and philosophical connection between the body and the land. The first event took place at Rye Bakery in Frome as part of Big Green Week in June.

Supported by Frome Food Network, This Food Is Rubbish will be hosted by historic family-run pub Eli’s – Rose + Crown in Huish Episcopi, where Annalee is also the current landlady. Now in the care of a 5th generation, it has committed to a new sustainable approach; serving carbon negative spirits, reducing waste and composting on site.


On booking, you will be able to select a herbivore (vegan or with dairy) or omnivore menu.  Since we don’t want to create any extra food waste (!), you will not be able to change this on arrival, so please take care to select the correct one for the members of your party.

We will endeavour to accommodate any allergies but it is essential that you let us know about this when you book as it may not be possible to provide an alternative on the day. 


The feast will take place in the skittle alley which has level access from the car park. Please advise us if you need wheelchair access so we can seat you accordingly. There is no disabled toilet, however the toilet is located on the ground level. If you have any other accessibility requirements that you would like to let us know about, please contact
