Essex is set to stage a deliciously glamorous event for all foodies this July the 9th and 10th! The picturesque Cressing Temple Barns, near Braintree, will be hosting the much awaited Essex Festival of Food and Drink, celebrating and showcasing Essex’s finest producers, chefs, vineyards and food vendors… This is definitely one not to miss!
A whole bounty of delicious produce from local independent and artisan producers will be available to try and buy. There will also be cookery demonstrations from some of the most celebrated and awarded local chefs, including Sherri Singleton (Mistley Thorn, Mistley), Jonathan Brown (The DuCane, Great Braxted) and Daniel Watkins (The Anchor, Hullbridge). And that’s not all, heading the line up will be the delectable, 5AA Rosette and Michelin award-winning Jean Christophe Novelli!
There will be plenty of entertainment for the whole family, from childrens workshops, stage events, exhibitors galore and a large foodcourt to sit back, sip champagne or indulge in a fine fresh feast. For more details, visit the festival website.
