This weekend sees the return of the Foodies Festival to Bristol. We have attended for the last two years and thoroughly enjoyed it. It has a perfect combination of great restaurants and traders serving their best foodie offerings along with products to take home and great bars as well as some fantastic chef demos.
It’s such a chilled out festival, last year I came home with bagfuls of food, full to the brim with great dishes and eve so slightly tipsy on prosecco
This year’s festival sees a 5 star line-up in the Aga Rangemaster Chefs Theatre, where top chefs showcase their culinary skills, share insight into 2016’s food trends and answer questions from the audience. Chefs taking part include (more TBC):
