Rutland Food Festival
Rutland Food & Drink Festival: 14th September 2013 Rutland Water, Sykes Lane, Empingham - Part of Rutland Day
The 2012 Rutland Food & Drink Festival, sponsored by Barnsdale Lodge, Rutland Living , was a celebration of all the wonderful food and drink on offer in and around Rutland. From small family run farm shops to traditional bakeries and award winning butchers, there is something for all tastes in England’s smallest county. Come and sample thirst quenching ciders and beers, nibble on pork pies and cheeses and savour organic freshly cooked sausages and bison burgers.
Rutland Day is on the same site as the Food Festival, and is a great day for everyone of all ages to enjoy. As well as a great line-up of live music on stage, there’s plenty of entertainment for children and a range of stalls for adults to browse around - making it a fantastic family day out in Rutland for all the family.
Our top local chefs were entertaining the crowds with their excellent cookery demonstrations, you can view some of the excellent recipes below.
