Longleat Food Festival
I am so excited for this weekend (and praying for sunshine!) as for the first time ever we will be hosting a Food Festival at Longleat.
On Saturday 10th – Sunday 11th June, Longleat will become home to its very own ‘local market’ selling fresh produce from brands and retailers from the local area.
There will be some of my absolute favourites including local Wiltshire chillies, and even a stall for our own Longleat honey.
James Martin formerly of Saturday Kitchen, and Nadiya Hussain, the amazing Bake Off winner, will also be joining us over the weekend to offer live cooking demonstrations too. I’ll also be joining them for one demo, which will be a first for me – I can’t wait to get stuck in though and learn some new tips.
I’m also excited to be introducing my very own “Afternoon Tea” to Longleat at The Orangery, as part of the weekend’s celebrations. It’s something I’ve been working on with the team for a while, and I’m looking forward to sharing it with you all, it’s a real dream come true for me.
I really wanted it to be a reflection of Longleat and what we stand for, unique, wondrous experiences, rich British heritage and tradition; meaning everything will be made using locally sourced ingredients and flavours where possible.
Expect delicate but delicious tea sandwiches, my homemade meringues, intricately crafted cakes and all served with our gorgeous Longleat sparkling wine.
If you’d like to join us, then you can buy tickets on the Longleat website: Longleat.co.uk
Hope to see you there!
