We are so excited for all the foodie events and festivals happening in the next few months!
Next week, from Saturday 10th May – Sunday 11th May, get yourselves down to Tynemouth Priory & Castle for the Tynemouth Food Festival!
So what’s it all about? I’ll let them tell you:
“Food lovers can expect a double-sized helping of tasty treats this year as this celebration of the region’s culinary heritage brings together even more local celebrity chefs and producers. There will be more than 50 local producer stalls, a “street food” area, chef demonstrations, a real ale festival, culinary-inspired kiddies’ entertainment and cooking competitions. So bring along your shopping bags, baskets and an appetite for the best food and drink the North East has to offer as Tynemouth’s streets fill with everything from artisan breads to cheeses, cakes, organic meats, pies, jams, gourmet chocolates, wine and local ales.”
So what do Scobberlotch think you should get involved in?
Well, there’s the Connoisseur Chocolate Tasting Session with Davenport’s Chocolates offered throughout the day on Saturday that looks divine! And on Sunday there is a sausage-making demonstration by Claire Watson- Laney from Northumberland Sausage Company.
Oh, and you should definitely check out the following food stalls:
Burrito Street by Chillipepper – chipotle BBQ pulled pork served with all the trimmings. Vegetarian verrsion available too!
Yogurt Delights – Delicious 97% fat free frozen yogurt dessert served with a choice of fruit.
Mr Fitzpatrick’s Cordials – the last original temperance bar in the UK with a huge range of cordial flavours including sarsaparilla, rhubarb and elderflower.
Papa Ganoush Street Food – the North East’s original and only Middle Eastern street food business.
This really is a food festival to get excited about. There is so much happening and planned for the weekend that all the family can get involved in. For a full programme of events, see here.
