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.
Our festival is the largest of its type held anywhere in the UK, with over 150 Food and Drink Exhibitors on show. Headline chefs from the BBC, ITV and Channel 4 feature with Paul Rankin, Chris Bavin and Jun Tanaka as well as the best chefs from around the region over 3 days of free cooking demonstrations on the stage. With free cooking classes for Adults and Children and BBQ Classes as well, everyone in the family can have four hours of foodie fun.
Join us on Sunday 1st April at 11.00am in the Demo Theatre and if you are one of the first 40 people to attend you can come and taste and judge the 6 finalists in this years search to find the NoWFOOD Centre Sausage of the Festival. There will be 3 plain sausages and 3 flavoured sausages to judge with Chairman of judges Steve Vaughan in attendance to tell you how to make a great sausage.
Are your weekday meals lacking the flavour of a meal out? Or are you missing that opportunity to show off some of your knife skills? Well then come and join us at the Adult Cooking Classes brought to you by Harlech Fine food s in the Chef’s Cuisine Cooking School at this year’s festival.
