It’s a feast of treats

Berkshire Life - - This Month -

Our pick of days out just has to be Hunger­ford Food Fes­ti­val on 7 Oc­to­ber. It’s a real cel­e­bra­tion of lo­cal pro­duc­ers but has so much more, in­clud­ing cook­ery demos, chil­dren’s events and even a chilli eat­ing con­test!

Along the High Street there will be plenty of de­li­cious fun with some 40 stalls, street food, the an­nual Hunger­ford Cook-Off, live cook­ing demon­stra­tions, Pump­kin Chal­lenge, ap­ple quiz, buskers and face paint­ing.

Pro­duc­ers dis­play­ing their good­ies in­clude Brun­skill Beef and award-win­ning Fox­glove Flock lamb, and lo­cal mak­ers of rape­seed oil, beer, cider, char­cu­terie, cheese, con­fec­tionary and cakes.

If you have any sur­plus ap­ples bring them along as the team from My Ap­ple Juice will press them. Dis­cover more about bees and honey with New­bury & Dis­trict Bee­keep­ers. Or­ganic farmer and chief ex­ec­u­tive of the Soil As­so­ci­a­tion, He­len Brown­ing, will talk about her new book, Pig: Tales from an Or­ganic Farm.

Cook­ery demos will in­clude Ol­lie Hunter from The Wheat­sheaf in Chilton Fo­liat and Aud­ley In­gle­wood Head Chef Gert Pien­aar.
