The Chester Food and Drink Festival, coming up to its 19th year in 2019, has confirmed a major new sponsor and with it a new name. Cheshire Food and Drink Website, Taste Cheshire has agreed to sponsor the event and it will be known now as the Taste Cheshire Food and Drink Festival, Chester. Taste Cheshire also has over 30,000 foodies that they talk to every week, so it made perfect sense to have this special platform dedicated to this festival. It is a win for everyone, evidence of that will be shown in the coming weeks.
The Chester Food and Drink Festival to be staged at Chester Racecourse this Easter is featuring foods from almost every part of the planet. We have the unique and amazing tastes and smells of Korea, Perfect Samosa, the authentic flavours of India, foodies who show off their favourite dishes from Thailand, traders who specialise in Japanese foods and even those who have the subtle flavours of Africa and of course Simon's Sausage - enough said!!
With 30,000 people expected this Easter on the Chester Racecourse, right in the heart of the city, the Chester Food Drink & Lifestyle Festival is the biggest event of its type to take place anywhere in the UK this Easter. Over 150 exhibitors highlight the best the county, region and country has to offer and means that for your, the visitor it is simply a wonderful culinary experience.
Make sure you stop by the BBQ Demo Area brought to you by Harthill Cookery School and put your name down for one of these free sessions. It’s just fabulous, learn how to do it, master the art and then eat what you make. Enjoy.
The Chester Food Drink & Lifestyle Festival, sponsored by Taste Cheshire, took place over Easter at Chester Racecourse for the 18th year and this year saw more people cooking and being involved in cooking than ever before.
