Foodie Events - APRIL

Here we have it guys, the start of the foodie festival season - YAY! Fill your boots with a deluge of delicious and delectable events coming your way. Food, food, and more FOOD! And maybe some coffee..

The London Coffee Festival

If you're even remotely interested in good coffee, go check out the London Coffee Festival, running from 3-6th April at the Old Truman Brewery, Brick Lane, London. Oxfordshire's own Ue Coffee will be there in the True Artisan Cafe, alongside some of Europe’s best coffee shops and roasters.

Milton Keynes Food Festival

11th April sees the launch of the Milton Keynes Food Festival. Running until 13th April the event features recipe demonstrations, children's cookery school sessions and more. Find out how to make the perfect chocolate truffles and delicious cocktails, along with Easter workshops, a cool children’s food lab and cookery school and interactive cooking lessons with retailers including Wagamama. Celebrity chef Richard Fox will be hosting the event and Heart FM will be on site with exciting competitions throughout the weekend.

Continuing the Bucks link, head back over the county border for the Easter weekend and visit the Great Missenden Food Festival. With up to 120 exhibitors, TV chefs demonstrations and masterclasses, you can be sure you won't be bored... or hungry!

Since the launch of Wolvercote Supper Club, Chilli Boo Chan (visiting this month, review to follow) and The Wandering Kitchen (visited last week, review on it's way) have both popped their heads above the parapet to a warm welcome. Oxfordshire just can't get enough of these homely, but high caliber, pop up restaurants. Spaces go quickly though, so book well ahead to avoid disappointment. 

As much as I love tea and toast, sometimes I need a bit of inspiration for what to cook; but with a great selection of cookery classes and workshops within driving distance, I never need to run out of ideas!

With regular farmers' markets in East Oxford, Jerico, North Parade, Gloucester Green, Wolvercote, Summertown and South Oxford, you have no excuse to miss out on a fabulous selection of local produce. Check my Foodie Events Calendar for full listings.
