Top Tooting Cook, the Tooting Foodival‘s fun local cooking competition is ably co-ordinated by ‘firm but fair’ Belinda. Using locally-grown fruit and vegetables which you can collect from us on 14th September, you make your dish overnight and then bring it to the competition at the Foodival on Saturday 15th. See the details of how to enter by clicking here and checking the Top Tooting Cook info in the menu at the top. You can also follow us on Instagram: @TootingFoodival.

In 2017 we had a record-breaking number of entries: do join in this year!
This is Imira, who won the overall award of Top Tooting Cook 2017 with her squash compote! It’s a Brazilian recipe.

All 2017 competition dishes are in this photo – crying out to be tasted (some people had to be held back…) 
There was a wonderful variation of international cultures, ingredients, skills and why-not-have-a-go represented. So – how about entering the Top Tooting Cook competition this year? All welcome!

Here are some local pickles at a secret location – maybe you’ll see them again on Saturday September 15th at the Foodival!
