Fes­ti­val time at Nor­wich’s As­sem­bly House

The sec­ond As­sem­bly House Food Fes­ti­val hits Nor­wich this month, promis­ing to shine a light on ex­cep­tional pro­duc­ers, in­gre­di­ents and hos­pi­tal­ity in a month-long cel­e­bra­tion.

Leg­endary food critic Jay Rayner returns to the house to talk about his Last Sup­per, game ex­pert Jose L Souto de­liv­ers a game demon­stra­tion with wild meat, there’s the chance to Eat Like Elvis while lis­ten­ing to live ren­di­tions of the King’s great­est hits and there is also the launch of the Nor­folk Cheese and Wine Fes­ti­val.

Join Pud­ding Club to en­joy a pa­rade of pud­dings set to a carousel of sweet disco tunes, cel­e­brate the one-night re­turn of The Laven­der House restau­rant’s fa­mous tast­ing menu and en­joy some truly mag­i­cal food from a se­lec­tion of pop-up chefs with in­cred­i­ble pedi­grees, from ve­gan tast­ing feasts to Whole Beast nose-to­tail din­ing.

And then there’s the chance to win cash prizes for your food pho­tog­ra­phy with a com­pe­ti­tion which cel­e­brates food shots taken in Nor­folk be­tween Oc­to­ber 1 2018 to Jan­uary 15 2020.

Chef di­rec­tor at The As­sem­bly House, Richard Hughes, says: “Our first food fes­ti­val was such a tremen­dous suc­cess that we have de­cided to hold a sec­ond and pack it full of events that we think of­fer some­thing re­ally ex­cit­ing for peo­ple in Nor­folk. The As­sem­bly House was de­lighted to be awarded the East­ern Daily Press and East Anglian Daily Times’ Nor­folk and Suf­folk Tourism Awards Food and Drink Des­ti­na­tion of the Year ear­lier this year and is ded­i­cated to putting the county firmly on the culi­nary map with an an­nual pro­gramme of ex­cit­ing events, one of which is the food fes­ti­val.

“We are lucky to live in a county where we re­ally do have it all – fish and seafood fresh from the boat, sea­sonal veg­eta­bles straight from the field, ex­tra­or­di­nary meat, ex­cep­tional dairy prod­ucts, and in­cred­i­ble res­tau­rants – and we hope The As­sem­bly House Food Fes­ti­val 2020 will help cel­e­brate them all.”
