Around the World in 80 Plates

October 6 2018 @ 8:00 am - October 7 2018 @ 5:00 pm

Food Festival Around the world in 80 plates


Visitors to this year’s East Midlands Food Festival can feast on amazing flavours from around the world, from traditional local produce including Melton Mowbray Pork Pies, Stilton cheese and beer brewed by Trappist Monks in Leicestershire, to global cuisines from Greece, India, South America, the Caribbean, South Asia and the Philippines.

The East Midlands Food Festival returns for the 15thyear from 6-7 October 2018, with around 200 stands showcasing the best food and drink from the East Midlands and beyond. There’s also the best gin, rum, vodka and whisky produced within 100 miles of Melton Mowbray.

Chefs such as Rachel Green will be cooking up live demonstrations in the Food Theatre and the ‘Cooking Maharaja’ will also be offering flavours of the East. Leicester’s award-winning De Montfort University Gospel Choir and the Melstrum Ukulele Band will be providing entertainment. There is also a Kids Zone with plenty of activities to entertain and educate children about food.

‘Melton Mowbray has built a strong reputation as the UK’s Rural Capital of Food with good reason – our Pork Pies, Stilton cheese and other local produce are some of the best in the UK. However, we’re also reflecting the diversity of people’s tastes at this year’s Festival with street food from around the world. There are some real favourites on offer, as well as some cuisines that you may not even have tasted before!’ – Matthew O’Callaghan, organiser of the East Midlands Food Festival

Coach parking is available on site for up to 50 coaches and group offers are available on request. Contact [email protected] on 07894 229499 for more details.
