Another successful Festival weekend took place at Snape Maltings at the end of September (and next year’s event will take place over the weekend of 27th and 28th September 2014).
2013 saw a packed programme of cookery demonstrations, workshops and fringe events and the sun shone. More children than ever before attended the event and numbers were up with approximately 10,000 visitors.
The Festival’s old friend, food writer and cook Lucas Hollweg, writes of the Festival:
” . . .For food lovers, it is a joyful celebration of quality, provenance and flavour. From the sausages to the cider, the bread to the beans, everything you’ll find here has the undeniable added savour that comes from food produced with integrity and care by real people with big characters and stories to tell. But, just as importantly, the festival is a reminder, in its own gentle way, of all the other reasons that local food really matters: the low food miles, the benefits for the regional economy, the wider need to find sustainable ways of putting food on the table. . . .”
