PUBLISHED: 17:00 23 May 2018
One of Burnham’s most popular bi-annual events is returning for the sixth time this weekend.
Eat: Burnham will be based around the town centre on Saturday, with five streets and indoor venues allocated to host the food festival.
The event is free of single-use plastics and organisers Bev and Sarah Milner Simmonds are reminding people to bring a bag or two with them.
The award-winning show has plenty of new additions to this year’s line-up, and here is a taste of what you can expect on the day...
The team has assembled some outstanding food and drink producers and more than 140 from the region will have stalls.
Expect some familiar faces from Weston’s producers’ market and Eat: Weston, as high-quality beef and lamb, beers and cheeses alongside speciality teas, gourmet marshmallows, chilli oils and scrolled ice cream will all be available.
Regular best in show winners Passion and Smoke, of Weston, will be at the festival along with local heroes Nutts Scotch Eggs, Hills Bakery and Times Past Cheese Dairy.
Retreat Demo Stage:
Taking place in the Baptist Church, in Station Road, the stage will have chef demonstrations from 11am.
Aimed at families, chefs will cook dishes parents can recreate at home.
The church is fully accessible and there will be large screens to help people see the demonstrations.
Hawksmoor Cookery School:
Classes will be hosted by Delicious in Taunton’s Chrissie Godfrey, who will be leading a hands-on workshop in vegan sushi.
People will make maki rolls with a soy and ginger dipping sauce, followed by gram flour pancakes.
The classes are suitable for adults and families with children aged eight and above. You can drop in from 10.30am-12.30pm, or 1.30-3.30pm to have a go.
Eat: Burnham will run from 9am-5pm on Saturday.
