Food festival set to tantalise taste buds

Have your say

Sheffield foodies will be able to taste some of the best flavours in the 
region as a celebration 
of produce returns.

The heart of the city centre will undergo a dramatic transformation for the three-day event, with artisan food stalls popping up in and around the Peace Gardens, Winter Garden and Millennium Square.

Visitors will also be able to wash down their tasty treats with locally-brewed beers and take part in a variety of family-friendly activities at the festival, which kicks off next Saturday, May 28.

Whirlow Hall Farm Trust’s pop-up farmyard will be in Millennium Square and a team will be hosting gingerbread decorating in the Winter Garden.

BBC Radio Sheffield will, once again, stage their own version of Ready, Steady, Cook and, in the festival demo kitchen, there will be masterclasses with some of the region’s best chefs, plus gluten-free baking with Great British Bake Off’s Howard Middleton.

The Moor will also be running Taste Moor, a series of activities and events, on the first day of the festival, including dance sessions, craft activities and food demonstrations.

Gareth Roberts, festival manager, said: “The festival line-up is bigger and better than ever this year. We have some firm favourites from previous years as well as some new and exciting additions.

“Sheffield Food Festival has established itself as the place to come to enjoy the best local produce the city’s independent traders have to offer.

“We are looking forward to once again hosting a fun, family-friendly weekend in the heart of our city.”
