The patrons of this year’s Malton Food Lovers Festival have been announced. They are:
Tom Parker Bowles – food writer and TV presenter of Market Kitchen on the Good Food Channel
Brian Turner – celebrity TV chef
Andrew Pern – writer and chef/patron of the Star Inn at Harome
Rosemary Shrager – popular TV chef
The hugely popular festival will be a two-day event this year with 10,000 visitors expected.
Approximately 100 local food and drink producers will be exhibiting at the Festival, and there will be an exclusive opportunity to watch surprise celebrities, alongside the region’s most admired chefs, create regional and international dishes in a series of cookery demonstrations and tutored tastings on two separate cookery stages. They will inspire visitors to enjoy and cook with the finest produce from Yorkshire and beyond.
Alongside the Food Festival, The Beer and Wine Festival will include 40 casks of real ale and ciders, a separate wine bar, tutored tastings, music and an all-day “beer garden” area.
Family events include a special Malton Food Lovers Taste Trail, a Young Chefs’ Competition, an Army Kitchen, Street Food Stalls, a Grand Prize Draw, music and entertainment throughout the two days and much more besides.
Accompanying the festival will be a full-colour glossy magazine with articles by guest writers, special recipes from some well-known chefs, a guide to the Taste Trail and full details of the demonstrations programme. More details can be found here, and if you would like to advertise in the magazine, or take a stall at the festival, please call Steph on 01347 821 928 or email her.
