Leicestershire Food Fortnight

September 24, 2012

Lots of Leicestershire Food Fortnight events going on right now  – you can see a map and full listing  here, but I’ll mention a few that look interesting. There’s a Best of Leicestershire Food evening at Bosworth Battlefield Heritage Centre on 4 October, Coalville Food and Drink festival across the town centre on 29 September, a Leicestershire food tasting day at Manor Farm Shop at Catworth on 29th, and one I’ll definitely get along to on that same day  –  a farmer’s market within the Orange Tree bar on High St, Leicester.  Throughout the fortnight there’s plenty of restaurants offering special menus and various breweries and vineyards offering guided tours.

I’m afraid you’ve already missed a couple of events this past weekend featuring Leicestershire Born and Bread, but this fortnight would be still be a good time to try out Jessica’s bread  or indeed book one of her baking classes.

And of course the fortnight culminates with the East Midlands Food Festival at Melton Cattle Market on 6 and 7 October – I suspect most readers will know all about this event, if you need convincing you can find a full list of arouhd 200 exhibitors here
