Dartmouth Food Festival




Every year the line-up of celebrity chefs who come to the Festival gets more and more impressive. One of this year's most talked about chefs, owner of The Seahorse in Dartmouth and fish chef extraordinaire, Mitch Tonks, will be sharing his incredible skills. French chef and baker Richard Bertinet will be inspiring all to join the hugely popular bread making movement of the moment, along with festival director and owner of Manna from Devon Cooking School, David Jones. Many many more high profile chefs, who are going to be involved, will soon be revealed. At the last Festival, Mark Hix, Matthew Fort, Tom Parker Bowles were just some of the great names participating.

This year, the focus at Dartmouth Food Festival is on simplicity, skill and style. Never before has there been more attention given to local produce, traceability, sustainability, the history behind the products and the love and passion that goes into making them. Dartmouth Food Festival is going back to basics and showcasing an impressive range of the most delicious food and drink to try as well as hosting a fantastic series of demonstrations. There will be over a hundred local producers, as well as a few from further afield, showcasing their products including South Devon Chilli Farm, Dartmouth Ice Cream Company, Georgie Porgie's Puddings, Filberts Fine Foods, Tideford Organics and Ashridge Cider to name just a few.


On the drinks' side of things, it promises to be one of the most exciting Festivals held in the South West. UKTV Food's Susy Atkins is spearheading the drinks' programme and has put together an inspiring selection of seminars and tastings which will appeal to everyone. Joining Susy, highly respected wine writer Fiona Beckett will also be hosting talks.

In addition, wine experts Liam Steevenson MW, Red & White wines, and the ever passionate Tim McLaughlin-Green, Mitch Tonks' sommelier, will be wowing all with their incredible knowledge of the world of wine.

Come along to the Dartmouth Food Festival and sample a wide range of both English and international wines including a selection of styles from the nearby Sharpham Estate, which is not to be missed during the summer months. Also, be enlightened at master classes run by Heron Valley cider, Bridgetown Brewery and lots, lots more in the pipeline.
