Who doesn’t love the MAC ? On the beautiful grounds of Cannon Hill park, this Birmingham cultural institution has always been close to Soul Food’s heart. The MAC primarily focuses on the arts, music, film, performance and workshops which take in the likes of pottery, language, tai chi and beyond, but food based events have never been a prime focus (having said this there have been some fantastic events hosted by the likes of Blanch and Shock, not to mention the development of the outside courtyard for BBQ’s).
Given the community ethos of the MAC and the stunning location in the heart of one of Birmingham’s best loved parks, it’s fitting that food should play a part in bringing people together and also to offer a showcase as to the multiple uses of this great space.
It’s this reason that we were really exited to be approached by the good folk at the MAC to help curate a one day food festival at the site and to also arrange a one off SFP takeover of the cafe within the building.
So on Sunday May 27th, SFP will be taking our kitchen on the move once more for a one off take over of the MAC kitchen and loads of our foodie pals will be joining us with food stalls across the site…. So What can you expect from your local Cajun kitchen? Well expect classics like Jambalaya, Gumbo & our famous burgers, but you can also look forward to the likes of peanut butter and oreo pie, sliders and some one off specials designed just for this special day.
The outdoor food fair will open at 11am and run through till 5pm and we’ll be cooking from around that time till the doors close!
On top of all this goodness, we’ll be roping in Soul Food’s resident DJ Andrew Dubber to come and help set the mood with his amazing collection of jazz, bossa nova, South American grooves and beyond…Check out Dubbers latest Soul Food mix right here
Hope to see you all there!
PS………Who knows…If there weather’s good we might just take it outside
