DATE:16th June 2023
LOCATION:Rye Bakery, Whittox Lane, Frome

Join the Frome Food Network in BIG GREEN WEEK for an unforgettable meal exploring 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 first 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.

This Food is Rubbish is hosted by sustainability-focused Rye Bakery in their beautiful home in a converted chapel on Whittox Lane in Frome. It is supported by Frome Food Network and historic family-run pub Eli’s in Huish Episcopi of which Annalee is the current Landlady.


To keep costs down, we have decided to make this a BYOB event. So don’t forget to plan ahead and grab some booze or your choice of soft drinks on your way! 


On booking, you will be able to select a vegetarian, vegan or omnivore menu.  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.  Please note, as Rye Bakery is a working bakery, wheat flour (gluten) and nuts are in regular use in the kitchen.
