Foodies Festival Edinburgh 2014 Ticket Giveaway

Do you have any plans for the weekend 9-10 August? If not, read on!

The brilliant Foodies Festival returns to Edinburgh for the 8th year on the weekend 8 – 10 August and I am excited to be giving away 5 pairs of tickets for the event, to be used either on the Saturday or Sunday. Here's more information about the festival;

 Foodies Festival, the UK’s largest celebration of food & drink returns to Edinburgh’s Inverleith Park on the 8th, 9th and 10th August for a weekend celebration of Scotland’s finest produce, international street food, and culinary masters.
 Having started as a small event in Edinburgh eight years ago, the festival has now grown into Scotland’s food and drink event of the summer, transforming Inverleith Park into a foodie paradise with over 200 artisan producers, pop-up restaurants, premium brands and the chance to watch your favorite chefs cooking live. 

Festival Director Sue Hitchen said… “Edinburgh is where it all started for Foodies Festival, so it’s a very special event for me and our team. This year we are delighted to be the official partner of the MasterChef Dining Bus, which offers our visitors a unique onboard dining experience with the contestants and winners from the series cooking onboard and serving visitors top-notch dishes from the purpose built kitchen. “

Top chefs joining the festival this summer include MasterChef the Professionals runners-up Adam Handling and Scott Davies, Great British Menu’s Jacqueline O’Donnell of The Sisters, Mark Greenaway of Bistro Moderne, TV Chef Tony Singh, The Pompadour by Galvin Head Chef Craig Sandle, CafĂ© St Honore’s Neil Forbes and Glasgow’s The Three Sisters bakers Gillan, Nichola and Linsey, all of whom will cook their signature dishes live in the Chefs’ Theatre while explaining how home cooks can prepare the same dishes for friends and family.’

I, personally, am excited about the new Chocolate, Bake and Preserves Theatre. It’s new this year and hosts top pastry chefs, chocolatiers and bakers. There is also a Chocolate, Baking and Preserves Village where you can buy sweet treats aplenty and gadgets too.

There is so much more at the event, so be sure to check out all the information at the Foodies Festival website.
