HUGH Fearnley-Whittingstall’s River Cottage is celebrating its 20th birthday in style this year with its annual Food Fair on May 25th and 26th, which promises to be bigger and better than ever.
Held over two days at its East Devon HQ, just three miles from Lyme Regis, the fair is jam packed with all the brilliant things River Cottage is known and loved for with food provenance being at the heart of everything they do.
Both days are full of family fun (children under 16 go free), exciting activities, special guests and amazing food. This year all three stages play host to a heady mix of exciting new guests, familiar River Cottage faces and old friends.
Hugh and Steven Lamb will take to the Meadow Stage over the weekend to welcome Yotam Ottolenghi, Kate Humble and Chetna Makan amongst others.
At the Fire Pit, Gill Meller will be fuelling the flames and the audience with an amazing line up including Samin Nosrat and Thom Hunt.
The Food For Thought stage has curated a fascinating timetable of debates and interviews to spark discussion.
Spread out over the 100-acre site will be a diverse combination of masterclasses, workshops and cookery demos. Some need to be booked before the day so whether you have a passion for wild cocktails, a ramen bowl of goodness or curing and smoking your produce, don’t miss the chance to learn more.
The River Cottage chefs will be preparing classic feasts over the weekend or indulge in the great street food on offer. The bustling food and craft market returns featuring some of the very best local producers and artisan makers.
The Food Fair is a fascinating playground for children to explore with their families. They can try their hand at gnocchi making, willow weaving, bushcraft and art workshops as well as joining in with games and visiting the livestock on site.
The River Cottage 20th anniversary focused Food Fair promises to be a belter – come and help them celebrate!
