Summer Food Festivals

The Big Cheese

I love food festivals and I love fireworks and luckily this coming weekend, there’s an event that combines both!

Set in the shadows of one of Europe’s largest castles the town of Caerphilly comes to life as people of all ages come to The Big Cheese.

This festival is an extravaganza of street entertainers, living history encampments, music, dance, traditional funfair, folk dancing, falconry, fire eating, minstrels, troubadours and of course, cheese! http://your.caerphilly.gov.uk/bigcheese/home-page

It’s also British Food
fortnight, which
encourages us to
‘buy British’.

And how could we resist with such a wealth of fantastic local producers exhibiting their wares. There’s always so much to whet the appetite that it’s best to limit the money you take to a food fair or you will be dragging a suitcase-full of goodies home with you!

Here some more forthcoming foodie events (hopefully there’s one local to you). Enjoy!
