Fun, food and folklore
- culture infused catering -

Breath is food
The body eats food
This Body rests on the breath
Breath rests on the body
Food is resting on food
The one who knows this becomes rich in food and great in fame
(Taittiriya Upanishad 11.7)

- Food is energy -

Life is too short to eat food that isn't tasty and satisfying. Our food includes all six tastes at every meal so that the major food groups and nutrients are represented and you feel satisfied. We mix home cooked food made from scratch with stories and community focused events.

We are a Frome based business on a mission to provide nourishing food at affordable prices, using ingredients that are as seasonal, locally sourced and environmentally friendly as we can. Yum! Our products and services include popup events, cooking workshops, bespoke events catering and our regular South Indian inspired Thali lunch plate served from our al fresco cafe Loop de Loop.

Delicious healthy soul food! Thanks for warming us up in the cold yesterday. Epic pakoras, we almost came back for a second round!

Lungi Babas Summer Update

What a lovely summer so far; full of family, friendship, fun and opportunity! Here’s an update of some of what we’ve been up to in the last few months.

Past event: Local Entrepreneur’s Forum 2019

On the 2nd July we were lucky enough to make a delicious meal for a community of friendly dragons gathered for an evening of connection, celebration and solidarity at the Local Entrepreneur’s Forum, organised by Edventure. People came together to “invest” in 4 local start-ups and enterprises. I’m very happy to say that we were able to pitch the exciting plans for growing our Lungi Babas family to the dragons! Many thanks to Edventure for organising such a great event and to all the wonderful people of our community! More news to follow soon!

Lungi Babas cooking at NVC 2018

Past Event: NVC Summerfest 2019

Lungi Babas was super happy to provide delicious meals at the NVC Summerfest 2019 for the third year running from Tuesday 30th July to Sunday 4th August. NVC Summerfest is an intimate, family-oriented festival with Nonviolent Communication as a core value. Supporting people to develop tools for resolving conflict in their family and community.

Campfire Convention 2019 Frome 28 August to 1 September 2019

Past Event: Campfire Convention Campout 2019

“In this age of disconnection, fear, and alienation, how do we set intention? How do we achieve balance, strength and focus on the positive? How do we start building resources to make a difference? How do we gain the inner strength to maximise our potential as human beings and as community?”

At Campfire Campout (at Field 725) we came together to explore this, to celebrate connection and spontaneity, to share our ideas, skills and our yummy food!! We were there catering Wednesday August 28th to Sunday 1st September.
