Summer Foodies Festival Dates
Summertime is coming and that can only mean one thing. It’s Foodies Festival time! Yes, this summer is gearing up to be a humdinger with new locations added to the calendar. I am particularly looking forward to one of this years new additions as it’s in my backyard (not in the literal sense obviously) at Marble Hill House. One of 2 National Trust locations to host this year.
There will be all the usual Masterclasses including the Drinks Masterclass for those who like a tipple, the Chefs Theatre for those wanting to improve their culinary skills and learn from the experts as well as the Children’s Theatre. I attended a few of these last year and picked up some handy tips, who says you can’t teach an old dog new tricks? Woof woof!
A few years ago the Producers Marketwas added, it highlights local producers to your region and the St Food Avenue tickles your tastebuds with delicacies from around the world. Make sure to take advantage of the stage area too . It’s a great place to relax and unwind in between all those tastings and chill out with a glass of something cold and there is music throughout the day to cater to all tastes as it should at a foodie festival (see what I did there?)
Professional chefs from the very best restaurants today and Masterchef winners will be on stage at all festivals depending which one you are at. Some of the chefs to feature are Shelina Permaloo, David Philpott, Tom Cook and Kenneth Culhane.
So what are you waiting for? Get your tasting spoons ready, whet your lips and bring a big appetite, it’s Foodies Festival season!
