universal cookery & food festival

An annual food celebration of the seasons & the harvest

As always there was plenty of food, drink and entertainment on the evening of the festival. This all came at no extra cost, and plenty stayed behind to join us for some music, food and plenty of beer! Watch this space for our 2017 evening entertainment...

a passion to inspire
 
This year's evening BBQ was hosted by Dingley Dell Pork who carried out one of their 'Flying Visits'.  Three teams of chefs known as 'The Dirty Dozen'  battled it out to cook some fantastic pork dishes for us all.  Well done to the 'Patonporketeers' for winning the Golden Pig Awards for Flying Visits Champion Team 2016!

Dingley Dell Flying Visits are all about celebrating the pig and its' journey from the farm to the plate, it's a celebration of the skill and the passion of everyone involved, the artistry of the master butcher and the creativity of the chef. The events are fund raising for charity and involve students from  "A Passion to Inspire".
