Food Lovers Festival

Food Lovers Festival

We’re sick of ready meals. Yes, at first they seemed clean, easy and a little futuristic - a bit like the tiny pizza in Back to the Future II that grows to full size after just 2 seconds in the rehydrator.

But despite living in an age where we expect instant gratification of our every desire, and quick and easy solutions to everything we do, we seem to be rebelling against convenience food and hankering after a return to the good old days. Bring back the times when we used to climb over the wall and steal an apple from Farmer Fred’s orchard on the way home from school, before arriving back to a fresh lamb roast with vegetables from the garden. Ok, this has never happened in my own personal experience, but I certainly wish that it had.

That’s what North West Fine Foods are all about – fresh, locally sourced food from high quality producers. North West Fine Foods are the people behind such culinary delights as the Fine Food Markets in St Ann’s Square, Piccadilly Farmers’ Market and food and drink related events all over the region.

This weekend, Tatton Park will be the latest in a series of venues chosen to host the North West Food Lovers Festival 2006.

A huge marquee in the grounds of the house will house food and drink stalls from some of the region’s top producers, with every type of fresh, seasonal produce available that you could think of. For a list of exhibitors, click here.

As well as the food and drink stalls, there will also be children’s entertainment, food seminars and demonstrations from some of the country’s finest chefs, including Antony Worral Thompson, Marguerite Patten, Simon Rimmer and Brian Mellor.

Visitors will also be able to enjoy free tours of the walled kitchen gardens and the mansion’s kitchen to learn all about the area’s culinary heritage.

Entry to the festival will be £5 per adult, and £2 per child (under 16).
