We’re counting down to the Great British Food Festival, here’s a quick chat with Daniel Maycock from the Festival.
When was the Food Festival set up?
We started in 2011 and have now done over 50 food and drink festivals around the UK. This will be our 5th year at Harewood.
What are the highlights for you?
I love the Men V Food Challenges and am looking forward to seeing the BBQ demo stage this year…I also love a good brownie!
Is there a ‘hot trend’ in food and drink at the moment?
Gin is still massive as are the craft beers. Hot food – people are going for more veggie and vegan options, and last year in the heat it was lighter options like salads and wraps rather than burgers or pies.
If you could invite three people to share a meal with, who would they be and why?
– Great Question! I think I’d have to say Gordon Ramsay, and get him to cook – to see if his cooking backed up how good he thinks he is!
– Pep Guardiola? I’m a big Man City fan so it would be great to talk to him about his time at City and elsewhere.
– Struggling for a 3rd….maybe James Cordon, as he could bring some humour to the night and seems like a nice fella!
What’s your go-to comfort food?
I love a good French stick and some nice cheese…!
