Great British Food Festival at Harewood

This May bank holiday (28th May – 30th May) sees the return of the Great British Food Festival to Harewood House. Along with wonderful food and drink producers, there will be headline chef demos, foodie talks, and terrific live music to enjoy from the North Front.

The Chef Demo stage once again welcomes great names from the world of cookery including Howard Middleton, Luis Troyano and Sandy Docherty, finalists and contestants from the Great British Bake Off. Be inspired by the wonderful treats our experts create!

Luis, Sandy and Howard will also be judging the popular Great British Cake Off, where amateur bakers compete head-to-head in three baking categories (see www.greatbritishfoodfestival.com for details and to enter). Best of all, you get to try the entries! Luis Troyano said,

I love doing the demos and the cake off is great fun, it’s brilliant to see what the public can do!

The Bake Off stars will also be heading to the new ‘Cake & Bake’ stage, introduced for the 2016 event. Hear from our celebrity chefs and discover their culinary secrets in a more interactive and intimate arena. Get your own foodie questions answered and finally avoid the dreaded soggy bottom or get the perfect biscuit snap!

Dan Maycock, Festival Director, said,

We’re thrilled to announce the great chefs at this year’s event. The new addition of the “Cake & Bake” stage is something we’re excited to see come to life. We hope that people will head over to Harewood and lap up the wonderful atmosphere this event brings.”

Alongside the celeb chefs, some of the best regional talent will be showcasing their skills; from baking tips to fine dining know-how, the Demo Theatre is the place to be for any budding chef!

Get out this May Bank Holiday weekend to the Great British Food Festival at the stunning Harewood House.

On May 24-26th the stunning estate at Harewood House hosts the Great British Food Festival. The recipe for the weekend; well take over 80 top local producers, a big serving of stunning hot food, real ale and wine bars, add a dash of craft and gift stalls, lots of activities and rides for the kids, top chef demos from the likes of ‘This Morning’s’ Marcus Bean and past ‘Yorkshire Chef of the Year’ Stephanie Moon, stir in a cake competition and the popular Men V’s Food challenge, and finally add lashings of excellent live music and mix together to make a lovely foodie day out for all the family.

The main chef demo area has great local chefs handing out tips and cooking up some tasty dishes to inspire you to try at home. All demos are free (as part of your admission ticket) to enter so everyone can join the audience and brush up on their culinary skills. Event Organiser, Daniel Maycock said ‘It’s a great mix of demos, from bakers to gourmet food – Marcus is great with the crowd but I’m also looking forward to seeing the best of the local talent, come along I’m sure they’ll impress you!’
The Great British Food Festival has attracted lots of producers showcasing the best in local, seasonal and speciality food and drink. It’s a great opportunity to get a real taste of the best of Yorkshire and Great British produce – sample, enjoy and buy. ‘With Great Britain’s amazing mix of cultures and cuisines we thought it would be a shame to overlook some more exotic elements – so you can try Ostrich burgers, Jerk Chicken and ‘Crazy Wendy’s’ Thai food as well as pulled pork, prime steak, and the best local burgers and sausages, for those with more traditional tastes!’ said Daniel.

After you’ve had your fill of tasty food you can go and do your foodie shopping, for tasty bits for that next meal at home or take the kids to bouncy castle or ‘Kiddy Cook’ lessons, or why not just sit out with a refreshing drink (or two), and enjoy the great live music in the stunning surroundings?!

The perfect recipe for a fun, foodie day out for the whole family.
