A full day of local foodie fun with over 40 stalls, sizzling street food, live cooking demonstrations, Cook-Off competition, pumpkin challenge, apple quiz and lots more – kindly sponsored by Doves Farm, Blandy's at Inglewood and the newly re-opened Three Swans Hotel in Hungerford.
Come hungry as there will be plenty of stone baked pizza, Thai curry, burgers, sausages, paella, veggie specials and lots more. Local producers will range from charcuterie to chillis, beef to bread - with local lamb, rapeseed oil, beer, mead, confectionary, liqueurs, cheese, cakes, honey in between.
Live demos will include The Perfect Risotto by Blandy's at Inglewood Head Chef Gert Pienaar, How to Pickle by Masterchef Semi-finalist Ollie Hunter from The Wheatsheaf and Hungerford’s very own Nicholas Lumley aka The Old Trout Smoker!
One of the UK’s top organic and sustainable food experts, Lawrence Woodward, will talk about where our food comes from and the choices we all face in the supermarket. Newbury & District Beekeepers will demonstrate where honey comes from and The Naked Grape will be running a bar with local beers, ciders & other tipples.
