The award-winning Woking Food and Drink Festival returned for the fourth year from Friday 2 and Sunday 4 September 2016.
Packed with a perfect mix of stellar celebrity and local chef, the event delivered another mouth-watering ‘feastival’ for foodies and families!
The free-to-attend event incorporated a healthy portion of live cookery demonstrations from celebrity and top local chefs, a sprinkling of interactive activities for all the family to enjoy, a splash of live entertainment, a pinch of masterclasses led by experts, a dash of celebrity book signings, and all mixed together with over 80 high-quality, artisan food and drink exhibitors.
At the heart of the festival, the Tante Marie Culinary Academy Theatre, a purpose-built, professional cookery demonstration stage featured live gourmet demos delivered by a range of prestigious chefs and restaurant owners. Headline chefs included:
- Jane Devonshire, MasterChef Champion 2016
- Tom and Henry Herbert, aka ‘The Baker Brothers’
- Rosemary Shrager & John Whaite, ITV1's Chopping Block duo
- Al Crisci MBE, founder of The Clink Restaurant
- Antonio Carluccio OBE, Chef Ambassador of The Clink Restaurant
- Georgina Hayden, food developer for Jamie Oliver, author and cook
This year’s event attracted record numbers topping in excess of 100,000 visitors. And, following public nominations and judging from an expert panel of professionals, the festival won the accolade of ‘Best Local Food Event’ at the annual Surrey Life Food and Drink Awards 2016 for the second year running.
The fifth festival is scheduled to take place from 1 to 3 September 2017. These dates will be confirmed over the coming months. Keep an eye on the website for full details and announcements.
