The Foodies Festival is the UK’s largest celebration of food and drink. It returns to Edinburgh this August for a weekend of Scotland’s finest produce, international street food and culinary masters. Inverleith Park will be transformed into a foodie paradise with over 200 artisan producers, pop-up restaurants, premium brands and live cooking displays from top chefs.
Watch live cooking demonstrations in the Chef’s Theatre, discover the latest foods and flavours in the Tasting Theatre, and sample wine, champagne and craft beer in the Drinks Theatre. Take the kids along to the Children’s Cookery Theatre to develop their cooking skills. Other highlights include The Cook School, BBQ Arena and Live Music Stage.
2017 sees Edinburgh’s 12th Foodies Festival. There are lots of exciting features including a Cake and Bake Theatre with 3D cake modelling, chocolate making and sugar-crafting. There’s a Wine and Champagne Theatre with experts on hand to guide you through the best bubblies from around the world, and a Craft Beer Theatre, hosting masterclasses which help to match foods with locally produced craft beers. A Feasting Tent is the social hub in the centre, where visitors can enjoy eating with chefs, friends and family at long banqueting tables. There’s also a Vintage Tea Tent serving Afternoon Tea and even a Chilli Eating Challenge for those brave enough to enter.
