Explore over 30 flavour-filled food stalls at The Taste of Rushcliffe

Tomorrow the annual Taste of Rushcliffe Food Festival returns in conjunction with Copper Café West Bridgford, with over 30 local growers, makers, cooks and businesses preparing to welcome crowds of food and drink enthusiasts to Central Avenue.

Celebrity guest Jean-Chrisophe Novelli is now no longer appearing at the celebration of food on Saturday 13 July, due to taking up filming in aid of a cancer charity.

Mr Novelli sent his apologies to fans who were set to visit him at the event, but explained that a cause close to his family’s heart had approached him for the project which he hopes will help to raise millions of pounds.

Food lovers can still expect to find a myriad of delicious delights at the festival this weekend, from locally produced cheese and preserves, to pastries, pies and a selection of wines from local vineyards, in association with Elvin Moore Solicitors.

Multi-award-winning food, lifestyle and parenting writer Emily Leary will also host a cookery demonstration from midday for anyone keen learn how to craft delicious, healthy meals at home.

Further great cookery demonstrations, more masterclasses and children’s activities of a cookery school and food science lab are taking place throughout the day, allowing everyone to attempt biscuit making, jelly explosions, healthy pizza creations and rocket building.

Rushcliffe Borough Council’s Deputy Leader Cllr Debbie Mason said: “We welcome food lovers and to what should be another great event that highlights our great lifestyle here in Rushcliffe.

“The food festival is a wonderful opportunity for some of our local businesses to showcase some of their delicious local treats and as ever this is an event for all the family to enjoy.”

The YouNG Summer Market will also coincide with the food festival and feature young entrepreneurs and performers from across Rushcliffe.

It will include youth-based enterprise including handmade crafts, summer decorations, a 3D printing stall, iced coffee outlet, seaside-style photo board, spin the wheel game and a host of young musicians entertaining the crowds.
