Food Festivals This Weekend 21.2.15

Food festivals this weekend in brief

Not a huge amount of stuff on in the regions this weekend, but we have found a couple of things in London and a Potato Day in Somerset. Plus Fairtrade Fortnight and the end of Chip Week. Have a good one also if you’re attending the Gin Festival! All details below:

* In LONDON, today and Sunday see a Craft Beer festival at the Old Truman Brewery on Brick Lane — tweet here. Today is also the second day of the London Plant and Potato Fair in Westminster. Plus, there is a Gin Fest around St Pancras, but tickets have now sold out. Damn – just the thought makes us crave a Martini!

* CASTLE CARY (Somerset) Potato Day on Sunday at Caryford Community Hall, Maggs Lane, Ansford. 11am-2pm. “The original and best potato day” for aspiring and keen grow-your-own fans, by Pennard Plants

* Nationwide This weekend is the last weekend of CHIP WEEK

Fairtrade Fortnight logo* Nationwide Fairtrade Fortnight starts on Monday, continues till 8 March. See the website to find out how to help make a difference.

Full details are on the Events Calendar section of our website (with a few more details than we get out in tweets alone)

The Taster himself is still dithering over whether to trot down to Cardiff Country Fair, or – alternatively – to get on with some serious test-cooking in the kitchen. Which will it be . . . they’re both excellent ways to spend an afternoon . . . the agony of choice

Have a great weekend, everyone. If you’re off to a fest, may your wellies never get stuck in the mud and the rainclouds stay away. xx
