Rutland Food Festival
Rutland Food & Drink Festival: 13th September 2014, 10am - 6pm at Rutland Water, Sykes Lane, Empingham - Part of Rutland Day
How time flies! The 2013 Rutland Food and Drink Festival has been and gone, and what an event it was! Back by popular demand was the live cookery demonstrations exhibited by some of the county's top local chefs, including Brian Baker from the Marquess of Exeter, Stephen Hallam from Dickinson and Morris, Gwilym Owen from Launde Farm Foods, Fiona Cairns, Wedding Cake maker to The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, and many more. New for this year was the first Great Rutland Cook Off between Brian Baker and James Goss cooking up a storm with the challenge of producing a meal for 4 people with the ingredients costing less than £5!
