Taste of suc­cess

Middlesbrough Herald & Post - - FRONT PAGE -

THOU­SANDS of food­ies en­joyed a day at the fourth an­nual Salt­burn Food Fes­ti­val.

De­scribed as its “busiest ever day”, the town’s Mil­ton Street was trans­formed into a buzzing fes­ti­val vil­lage, with more than 80 in­de­pen­dent lo­cal food pro­duc­ers from the North-east and North York­shire tick­ling the taste­buds through­out the day.

Or­gan­is­ers planned the day as a cel­e­bra­tion of good lo­cal food, and in­clud- ed a Fes­ti­val Fringe around the town, a Fam­ily Kitchen for chil­dren, out­door din­ing and pic­nic ar­eas.

Spe­cial guest chefs in­clud­ing Mark Greenaway from BBC2’s Great Bri­tish Menu and Chan­nel 4’s Sun­day Brunch cooked up a treat at the Fes­ti­val’s live Cook­ery Theatre.

Fes­ti­val direc­tor Lorna Jack­son, who lives in the town and also runs the fam­ily deli Real Meals on Mil­ton Street, said of the event at the week­end: “It’s been an ab­so­lutely in­cred­i­ble day. We never like to take any­thing for granted, but it’s been our busiest fes­ti­val yet – and that’s say­ing some­thing!”

“It’s been re­ally busy all day long, and the at­mos­phere around the place has been won­der­ful – it’s great to see so many peo­ple of all ages en­joy­ing great lo­cal food right in the heart of town.”

And fes­ti­val guest chef Mark Greenaway loved his first visit to the town.

Mark said: “This is the first time I’ve been to Salt­burn, and it won’t be the last.

“It’s an ab­so­lutely gor­geous town, with lots go­ing on. There’s so many great stalls, a fan­tas­tic mix of peo­ple of all ages, all the cook­ery demos have been amaz­ing, and it’s been great to meet and chat with so many peo­ple.”

Peo­ple can en­joy more tasty treats, when the monthly Salt­burn Farm­ers’ Mar­ket re­turns on Satur­day, Septem­ber 10.
