AYL­SHAM TAKES IT SLOW

EDP Norfolk - - FOOD NEWS -

Chef Richard Hughes will launch the Slow Food Ayl­sham’s Food Fes­ti­val this month on a week­end full of old favourites. Mu­sic and magic are on the menu along­side reg­u­lar fea­tures like the Coun­try Mar­ket, Farm­ers’ Mar­ket and Slow Brunch, with the walk­a­bout mu­si­cal act Ba­nana Ukulele Band and ma­gi­cian and chil­dren’s en­ter­tainer, Rob­bie James, as well as Nor­folk favourite, folk mu­si­cian and car­toon­ist Tony Hall on hand to en­ter­tain vis­i­tors.

SFA chair­man Pa­trick Prekopp said: “While the fo­cus of the fes­ti­val will, of course, be on food and par­tic­u­larly lo­cal pro­duce, we want to make peo­ple think dif­fer­ently about food. It should be fun and a fam­ily af­fair and we hope to sprin­kle a bit of magic and star­dust around.”

The fes­ti­val starts on Fri­day Oc­to­ber 6 with the weekly coun­try mar­ket in the town hall where you can sam­ple a wide range of home-baked, home­grown and home-made prod­ucts.

On Sat­ur­day morn­ing the reg­u­lar Farm­ers’ Mar­ket has an ex­tra at­trac­tion with mu­sic and en­ter­tain­ment and Sat­ur­day evening is de­voted to wine tast­ing. The fa­mous Big Brunch on Sun­day fea­tures the glo­ri­ous full English fry-up and the all-you-can-eat con­ti­nen­tal buf­fet, and ta­ble ma­gi­cian Rob­bie James.

Tick­ets for events are avail­able from Barn­wells Newsagents in the Mar­ket Place or by call­ing 07519 361812. slow­foo­dayl­sham.org.uk or go on Face­book and Twit­ter.
