The organisers of the popular Cottingham Food and Drink Festival have some exciting news to announce.
The annual foodie extravaganza returns to the East Yorkshire location on Sunday 16th September 2018 (10am to 5pm).
The event is now in its sixth year, and will feature stalls in Market Green, King Street and Hallgate for this one-day foodie extravaganza.
Around one hundred of the best regional food and drink producers will nestle alongside tasty street food, cookery demonstrations and a children’s fun fair.
From Arnold’s Oyster Bar to Zachary’s Gelato, the wide range of stalls is set to feature regular favourites including The Taste of Sardinia. There will also be first timers such as award winning Totally Baked Pies plus a selection of others new to the Festival.
This year’s cookery demos will be headlined by TV chef and Yorkshire lad Brian Turner and will also include Chris Harrison of renowned Hull eaterie Shoot The Bull, plus chefs from Whites Restaurant in Beverley and Michelin recommended Winteringham Fields.
Caroline Anderson of the Market Managers, who are organising this year’s event, said: “It was a privilege to be asked to run such a high profile event. Over the years, it has developed into a top-flight food festival and we will do our best to build on its success.
“Not only do we have Brian Turner make a guest appearance, we’ve also got local chefs and some fabulous artisan food producers which will make for a fabulous foodie event!”
Councillor Helen Green, who has run the event since its inception, said: “This is a fantastic event for Cottingham and I am delighted that it has become such a huge attraction.
“This year I am taking a break from organising duties and have asked The Market Managers to run the festival.
“The festival attracts many thousands of visitors to Cottingham, and we are largely keeping to the winning format of previous years. We would also like to thank the sponsors, EY Events, Graham & Rosen Solicitors and DM Keith (Skoda), for their support.”
During the day, TV chef Brian Turner CBE returns to headline in the festival’s Cookery Theatre. Always a big hit with audiences, he will do several demonstrations throughout the proceedings. Brian commented:
“The festival is such a well organised event and it’s a pleasure to be coming back, seeing old friends, making new ones, back home in Yorkshire! Come and see my demonstrations and let’s have some fun.”
