Thoresby Courtyard FoodFest promises plenty of treats

Spring FoodFest at Thoresby Courtyard is almost upon us, and local food producers from all over Nottinghamshire and the neighbouring counties are preparing their products.

There will be cheeses, chillies, chutneys and cakes; speciality sauces and breads, vegetables fresh from the Nottinghamshire fields, handmade ice creams and cheesecakes, plus a variety of pies and pastries, wines, ciders and locally-brewed beers, and kitchen- and table-wares for sale.

The Chocolate Show is set to be one of the highlights of Spring FoodFest. In the Kitchen Theatre, local chefs will also demonstrate their specialities, all with a chocolate theme, perfectly timed for the week before Easter, when we’re all getting into a chocolate frame of mind. An Easter Egg hunt through Thoresby Park will keep the children busy.

“It’s great to see so many local companies getting into the swing of things”, said organiser Alison Lowe. “We come to Thoresby twice a year, and the FoodFest is acquiring a reputation for being a fantastic event. Admission is free, as is parking, and thanks to our sponsors at the Fellows, Morton & Clayton in Nottingham, and the generous support of all of these great local chefs, there will be no charge for the Kitchen Theatre either.

“The event is partially indoors, so everything will be in full swing no matter what the weather; there’s also the Gallery and the Craft Studios to explore, and Thoresby Park is a lovely venue for a country walk”.

Spring FoodFest takes place on Saturday 31st March and Sunday 1st April, from 10 till 4 on both days. Further details can be by clicking here
