An annual food celebration of the seasons & the harvest

The universal cookery and food festival was established in 2012 by three passionate chef directors representing the Craft Guild of Chefs – John Feeney, Lee Maycock and Ian Nottage.

Working in partnership with event management company McCullough Moore Ltd, this small team of chefs and established event management company dared to take on the challenge of creating this one-of-a-kind event. 

We give chefs the chance to get out of the kitchen and rub shoulders with farmers, foragers and growers as well as suppliers, industry insiders and, of course, other chefs.

The team work to ensure that the festival ticks all of the boxes for being full of learning, inspiration and sharing ideas, all in a relaxed, rural and outdoor environment (come rain or shine). Oh yeah, there’s usually beer too...
