Harrogate's Foodies Festival Does Christmas


Now I don't think I actually know a person who didn't get totally drawn in, hook line and sinker with the whole GBBO phenomenon recently - and to me that just shows how much we all love fantastic food.

All of those cakes, bakes and show-stoppers certainly made my Wednesday evenings that's for sure.

But why am I bringing this up now I hear you ask?

Well, all in good time...

First I want to refresh your memory a little to a brilliant event I attended in Harrogate a few months ago - the food-tastic Foodies Festival...



And what a fantastic day it was too.

So - a food festival, the GBBO - what on earth could I be wanting to bring to your attention today?

Well...

The Foodies Festival is happening all over again, and this time it has an amazing Christmasy theme.
(details here)


Make a little note in your diaries food lovers - 11-13th December at Harrogate's International Centre

It's not to be missed, especially if the fabulous summer event was anything to go by - it was a really fun day out.

And I'm sure it will be again when I pop along myself in December.

So what's happening?

Well, there will be a whole host of fabulously famous chefs swapping their aprons for Christmas hats, cooking up delicious treats and sharing all of their tantalising yummy knowledge with everyone.

From The Clarendon Hotel's Lionel Strub to Jackie Kearney - MasterChef Finalist 2011 - there will be so many fun things to see, do and more importantly, to taste.

And now that Baby Baker is with us in the world, I shall be scoping out the Gin Cocktail Masterclass that's for sure and the Artisan Christmas Market is high up on my "must see" list too.

Add these to the Champagne Sky Bar the kiddie friendly Elf Cookery School and the endless list of other treats, it's a day I'm certainly looking forward to already.

But if that's not all (and now my GBBO reference should make sense!) this years Great British Bake Off Winner, and Leeds lady Nadiya Jamir Hussain will also be taking centre stage and making her Foodies Festival debut during the weekend...


Personally, I think she is fab and a very well deserved winner - I can't wait to meet her.
