Highcliffe Food Festival adds ‘Art’ to its name and welcomes Rosemary Shrager.

The popular Highcliffe Food Festival is expanding and has adapted its name to include the word ‘Arts’. It will take place in the centre of Highcliffe Village on Saturday 1st and Sunday 2nd June along Lymington Road and in the Recreation Ground. Once again the headline sponsor will be Hoburne Holidays.

With an emphasis on ‘real food’ there will be stalls selling artisan foods and several new initiatives, including a stylish craft marquee selling beautiful jewellery, pottery, pictures, textiles and glassware all made by local artists and presented by ‘The Little Craft Shack.’

Popular chef and author Rosemary Shrager will be appearing in the demonstration theatre, sponsored by Christchurch Harbour Hotel. Her professional career has included working in top London restaurants, and she regularly appears on popular television series such as The Real Marigold Hotel. The Lord Bute will be holding a lunch with Rosemary and tickets will be £45 to include a three-course lunch and a welcome drink.

Over the weekend there will be sessions from Christchurch Harbour, The Jetty, Chewton Glen, The Mill at Gordleton, The Three Tuns and local fisherman Russell Murphy. On Sunday award winning Indian chef and author Sarah Ali Choudhury will demonstrate recipes from her latest book and other themes will include Korean and Chinese cooking and a masterclass of chocolate.

Entertainment will include two music stages, and the popular Sheep Show will appear for the first time. With lots more for children it includes a Mad Hatter’s tea-party with magic and storytelling, Sammy the Seahorse, a treasure hunt, ‘Chefs on Stilts’ and a ‘Grow your Own’ feature where children will learn all about planting and growing herbs and vegetables. The popular Kids Kitchen will also be back where children can attend workshops making chocolate lollipops, and learn what makes bread rise and how butter is churned. In other words, there will be something for the whole family to enjoy.
