Right, it’s time to pop your wellies on, gather the family and head to the River Cottage HQ for a celebration of food and drink with Hugh and the rest of the team. Set for 30th May, the River Cottage Spring Food Fair is all about sampling the finest tastes and flavours of the season, cooking in style and learning how the guys grow their own produce all year round.
Wander stalls laden with fresh produce, say hello to some of the friendly resident animals (always a hit with the kids) and there’s even the chance to get your favourite cookbook signed by Hugh himself. The rest of the River Cottage experts will be on hand to answer all your culinary questions and share hints and tips on whipping up a storm from real, good ingredients straight from the garden.
Friday night is the opening Gig Night with Steve Knightley, and the Saturday evening post fair Gig Night will welcome live music from Mad Dog Mcrea. Make sure you look out for some of us Blue Chippers during the fair too, as we’ll be on hand to say hello and enjoy the fun throughout the weekend.
Tickets must be purchased in advance, under 12s are welcome free of charge. There’s plenty of parking close to the River Cottage HQ and in true farm style you’ll be ferried by tractor from the car park field to the main event!
