Over the last month, The Great British Food Festival at Shugborough Hall, Macclesfield and Capesthorne Hall, Cheshire have attracted over 70 producers showcasing the best in local, seasonal and speciality food and drink. There was a wide selection of local hot and cold food, live music and lots of food based entertainment. Festival goers also saw a variety of free cooking demonstrations, from top chefs such as David Mooney and Simon Rimmer, as well as talented local producers.
Breathing Matters was this year’s nominated charity and people were invited to attend taste challenges such as ‘Men Vs Food’, and to show off their own baking skills in the ‘Cake-Off’ to raise funds. Other attractions include free artisan talks, Junior Chef’s Academy, live music, fantastic children’s entertainment and rides and of course the wide range of amazing food stalls.
There are a few more dates to round off this year’s festivals – perhaps you could pop along:
- August – Saturday 24th, Sunday 25th and Monday 26th @ Stonyhurst College
- September – Saturday 21st and Sunday 22nd @ Arley Hall, Warrington
Breathing Matters would like to thank the organisers of The Great British Food Festivals for their support this year – we are truly honoured to be the nominated charity for such a fantastic event.
