Following on from its huge success last year, the Highcliffe Revival Food Festival will take place on Saturday 21 May.
In its second year, it is in association with Christchurch Food & Wine Festival. The theme will be to ‘shop local’ and support the food producers with plenty of artisan food, seafood and good meats from the local deli and butcher. Food stalls, demonstrations and lots of street entertainment are also being planned.
A host of leading local chefs will be taking part in cookery demonstrations, and for this year there is also to be a Kids Kitchen, sponsored by local Dorset butcher of the year, Chris Watson, as well as a baking competition.
Celebrity TV chef and popular author Valentine Warner will be returning to give demonstrations, and will be attending a special lunch at the Cliffhanger restaurant. Valentine is a cook, food-writer and broadcaster. He would generally prefer to be found in a field rather than an office, and is most likely to be holding a spoon, a fishing rod or a mossy stick!
Mary Reader, Chairman of Highcliffe Revival Food Festival said: “Last year his demonstrations were inspirational and really fitted our theme of promoting quality local produce – and for that reason we have decided to ask him back.”
Also appearing in the festival demonstration theatre will be an excellent line-up of local chefs. So save the date and join the Highcliffe community on Saturday 21 May at the Highcliffe Revival Food Festival sponsored by Hoburne Holiday Parks.
