Aldeburgh Food & Drink Festival: 24th – 25th September 2011

Situated on the river Alde in a landscape of open skies, marshland, and reed beds, the event is held at Snape Maltings, home to the world-famous concert halls of the Aldeburgh Festival of Music as well as a collection of shops selling food, kitchen-ware, crafts, art, books and much else. In this uniquely beautiful setting, the Aldeburgh Food and Drink Festival has become established as one of the foremost food festivals in Britain, while the whole area has become a food destination.

The Aldeburgh Food and Drink Festival was started in 2006 to celebrate and publicise the abundance of local produce and also to help people reconnect with the countryside and the food it provides. One of the objectives of the festival is to demonstrate the strong connection between food and the market towns, the villages, the countryside, the rivers and the sea.

With over 90 exhibitors including a whole host of fine Suffolk food producers, we’re proud to say that some of those are on The Artisan Food Trail, so please visit their stands, try and buy their produce and have a chat...

Alder Tree – Fruit Ices
The Artisan Smokehouse – Smoked products
Breckland Orchard – Soft drinks
Food Safari – Food experience days/courses

Marquee Stage & Courtyard Stage
It should be an exciting weekend as there’ll also be a packed programme of cookery demonstrations from famous names such as Angela Hartnett, Matthew Fort, Richard Bertinet, Henry Harris, Fergus Henderson, Galton Blackiston, Thomasina Miers and Valentine Warner.

Artisan Food Trail member, Polly Robinson of Food Safari will be demonstrating alongside Lucas Hollweg as they present ways with alternative flatfish such as dabs, megrims and small flounders.

New for 2011 a third stage has been added – the Sourced Locally Stage sponsored by the East of England Co-operative Society.  There will be a series of demonstrations using locally sourced produce all supplied by the Co-op, and also EastFeast children and their teachers will all be demonstrating on this new stage.
