18:30 - Bread & Med Masterclass, Trove & Salvi's Collaboration

 You won't want to miss this fantastic hands-on collaboration between two of the city's finest indie food operations. Trove will head up a bread making masterclass where guests will be able to make their own dough. While it's proving, Salvi's, along with some of their key suppliers, will host a variety of talks and tastings on different cheeses, mozzarella, olives, oils etc.. Guests can then eat the fruits of their labour and sample some of Salvi's products. Since winning the Cheap Eats category in the 2013 Manchester Food and Drink Awards Trove has never looked back. At the heart of the Levenshulme cafe is their artisan bakery where bread is hand-made slowly from the best organic ingredients with no additives or improvers. Family-run deli/eaterie business Salvi's has built up is own little city empire, first at the Corn Exchange and recently at two outlets on John Dalton Street without compromising the authenticity of its Italian cuisine.
