First Food Festival

October 26, 2009

I’m sure I’ve been to something similar before but ,whatever, Leicester City Council is billing the event at the market on  Sunday 22 November as the city’s first ever food festival. They are claiming that there will be over 200 stalls there, which would certainly make it worth the trip into town on a Sunday. Among the events is a live cook off from people submitting entries to the Leicester on a Plate competition, designed to showcase Leicestershire produce. You’ve got until 6 November to submit ideas for this – dishes must be suitable for cooking in 30 minutes  on the day and must be “safe for general consumption”, which is a relief. To find out more visit the Leicester Market site. There’s a £250 voucher and a commemorative plaque available for the winner.

I missed the East Midlands festival at Brooksby this year (dining at the Three Chimneys on Skye since you ask), so this could be a good  chance to stock up pre-Christmas .
