We’ll be in good company when we attend our first virtual food and drink festival this weekend.
We will be joined by fellow family farming businesses Wold Top Brewery, Spirit of Yorkshire Distillery and Yorkshire Rapeseed Oil at the Northern Food and Drink Virtual Festival that has been organised by chef, Sean Noonan, pictured.
The festival will run as a Facebook event on 24th and 25th May and will feature a series of cookery demonstrations on a virtual stage (including Jon Appleby from the Blue Lion at East Witton who will be cooking with our chicken) and themed tents with producers telling their stories and promoting their goods. We will be in the Food Tent with Yorkshire Rapeseed Oil, Wold Top will be in the Beer tent and Spirit of Yorkshire in the Spirits tent. Visitors to the festival can enter each tent by joining the respective Facebook group. The event will also have talks and master classes from leading industry professionals.
Sean, Head Chef of the Wellbeing Farm in Edgeworth, is organising the festival with Jacky Moss from Creative Agenda and Craig Sherrington, National Finalist in the 2018 Great British Menu. Sean said: “The Northern Food and Drink Virtual Festival is a brand new event to support and showcase northern producers, distributors and some of the great chefs within the region in these difficult times.
“There is obviously no charge for virtual admission, but we would encourage visitors to make a small donation to Hospitality Action to help facilitate the great work that they do.” You can donate to Hospitality Action here.
