Feast East

Chilford Hall, Linton, Cambridgeshire 3-5 March 2011

You'd be forgiven for thinking that Feast East was some kind of Asian eating extravaganza, it is in fact a foodie event run by Tastes of Anglia to showcase some of the best small producers from Bedfordshire, Cambridgeshire, Essex, Hertfordshire, Norfolk and Suffolk.

Held at Chilford Hall, site of 18 acres of vineyard it was the perfect place for such an event. As well as opportunities for sampling and buying, there was also a demonstration kitchen where Hector Bunting, chef and owner of the Anchor Inn at Nayland cooked up some interesting dishes. Emma Crowhurst was there too – does anyone remember the BBC's Food and Drink programme? You may recall seeing her on it, along with Anthony Worrall Thompson.

The event was quite packed with eager members of the public clamouring to get their hands on some fine local produce. It's great to see so many people who appreciate quality food made with care and most of all passion.

We met up with Breckland Orchard (again – Claire really does get around!) and The Artisan Smokehouse, which, incidentally, won the runner-up prize for Best Dressed Stand.
