The Food Festival at Howden Show 2017 will be bigger and better than ever before, thanks to a host of new attractions.
Several chefs and cooks will be giving cooking demonstrations in the outdoor kitchen, including Mina Said, who will show the audience how to make the best use of wild ingredients. Mina will also be leading wild food walks around the showground.
Sarah Cook, a passionate, home cook from Barmby on the Marsh, will be using fruit and vegetable boxes supplied by Annie’s Fruit Bowl in Market Place, Howden to prepare some tasty, wholesome dishes.
Members of the team from Anna’s Happy Trotters, a local free range pork business, will give a butchery demonstration before cooking up some delicious pork recipes. As well as this, Louise Smith of the Jug and Bottle at Bubwith will be showcasing a selection of craft gins, which will be available for visitors to sample before they buy.
If that’s not enough to tempt you, there will also be a prosecco bar for the first time, alongside the usual mix of food and drink stalls and opportunities to taste products.
