Wonderful food from around the world, all to be found at the recent Wallingford Food Festival!
The festival celebrates all that is local from meat, cheeses, bread, vegetables, beers, ciders, coffee and much more. The best way to demonstrate what you can do with wonderful local produce is have great chefs demonstrate their passion for cooking with great ingredients and talents to inspire you try yourself!
This years (2014) festival was a wonderful celebration of food and drink all produced and available within 30 miles of Wallingford. The four annual festival welcomed over 55 producers and in two days nearly 5000 visitors. The weather was fabulous as was the atmosphere, boosted by the music from the Missing Persians and the Occasional Orchestra!
The chefs lined up to demonstrate how to take wonderful ingredients and through their individual alchemy talents create extraordinary dishes for the receptive and appreciative audiences. Food from Brazil, Japan, Italy, Germany and the UK. What a celebration of local food and international cooking styles.
Below is a selection of pictures from this years demonstrations – all suberbly managed and hosted by Jo Thoenes from BFBS Brize Norton.
