Join The Donkey Sanctuary at its brand new Family Food Fair for a food-filled day of inspiration, temptation and hands on activities for the whole family to enjoy. Throughout the day there will be live cooking demonstrations from a number of fantastic local chefs, providing ideas for more creativity in the kitchen. For the children, Food is Fun will be running a free cooking activity, where little ones can enjoy making something tasty themselves and who knows, it may even enthuse some budding chefs out there! There will also be biscuit decorating and face painting once they’ve enjoyed getting hands on in the kitchen.
As well as tantalising the tastebuds, this event is sure to delight the ears with a spot of lunch time live music from accomplished acoustic duo, Vine and Dandy. Delivering high energy performances, this is a duo that entertain with clever lyrics and catchy tunes.
Accompanying this great entertainment will be a collection of excellent local food and drink producers offering award winning produce to sample and purchase, including meats, cheeses, preserves, cakes, ciders and home grown vegetables. There will also be a range of delights from local refreshment traders to satisfy the appetite or for somewhere a little more tranquil, The Kitchen restaurant will provide a haven in which to retreat for delicious, freshly prepared dishes.
Chris Phillips of The Donkey Sanctuary said: “Food is a great way of bringing families together and our brand new event champions this ethos by providing something for all ages. It’s going to be a brilliant day in which to discover and enjoy some of the best food and drink our area has to offer in just one sitting - so do come with an appetite!”
