The Great British Food Festival will return to Knebworth House this summer. Taking place over the weekend of July 21 and 22, organisers promise the festival will be even bigger and better.
The line-up includes more than 80 “Best of British” producers and street food vendors, celebrity chef demos, artisan producer talks, foraging walks, kids’ cookery lessons, live music, a “cake off” competition and “man vs food” challenges.
Dan Maycock, festival director, said: “We’re thrilled to be back at Knebworth, it’s always a lovely event, with a great crowd and we are really keen to push things on for 2018, hence we have more activities going on and a great line-up of chefs.”
The Great British Food Festival has attracted an array of producers showcasing local, seasonal and speciality food and drink available to sample, enjoy and take home.
Thai, Mexican, Spanish and Caribbean street food will be available, in addition to pulled pork, prime steak and local burgers and sausages.
The main demo area will host local and TV chefs. All demos are free to enter so everyone can pick up top foodie tips.
There are also regular artisan foodie talks, foraging walks and a “masterglass” drinks stage.
Chefs Sandy Docherty and Howard Middleton will be providing demonstrations and judging the cake off, in which amateur bakers compete head-to-head in two baking categories
Sandy said: “I love doing the demos and the cake off is great fun – it’s brilliant to see what the public can do.”Great British Food Festival Knebworth
