Thame Food Festival 2014

This year’s Thame Food Festival takes place this Saturday, 27th September 2014, and is well worth a visit.

At last year’s festival, I gave a demonstration on behalf of McCormick foods, working on stage with the legendary Ken Bruce. We had a lot of fun, and I’m sure there’s a future for Ken in being a sous chef if the Radio 2 career loses its appeal.¬†Our audience swelled as the demonstration progressed, which we are sure was entirely due to our skills and expertise, and had nothing to do with the presenter who was to follow us, Raymond Blanc.

The Thame Food Festival is a great show for foodies, food lovers, and professionals alike. It’s a food show for all, with a range of stalls and events, from mums-having-a-go, to artisan food houses, to well known food industry giants, to celebrity chefs. There’s lots of diversity, lots of wonderful food on show, and lots of opportunity to learn, try, taste, and buy.

If you’re in the area, pop in on Saturday. To give you a feel for it, here’s the three minute video of the 2013 event. Watch out for the amazing double act exactly two minutes in.
