Food & Drink Festival – a huge success!


The sun was shining on the Stowmarket Food & Drink Festival, held on Sunday, 1st July. Thousands of people sampled the wide range of food and drink on offer which included a Prosecco bar, vegan food, world foods, wild game meat, gluten free, a hog roast and a chocolate fountain.

The John Peel Centre, played host to the Kitchen Theatre which showcased live cookery demonstrations by leading local chefs including Mark David from the Cooking Experience, Chris Hall from the Bildeston Crown and Lee Cooper from the Ice Cookschool.

Children were entertained by Kiddy Cook with free activities including biscuit decorating,lemonade making and wrap building and the 12 Secret Chefs hidden around the event kept them searching! Well done to Annabelle Barton for winning the competition to find all of the chefs.
