The free to attend festival is located across Woking’s town centre where 80 food and drink stalls will be stocked full of the latest artisan products, treats and snacks, not to mention the delicious hot food on offer.
Taking centre stage in Jubilee Square, the purpose-built Woking Shopping Demo Theatre will be home to 20 live cookery demonstrations, featuring talented and highly regarded celebrity and local chefs.
This year, the festival welcomes back golden girl of Persian cookery, Sabrina Ghayou. Sabrina’s exotic recipes are packed full of flavour, yet surprisingly unfussy to recreate. Her busy and successful career includes the publication of four successful cookbooks, running cookery classes and supper clubs, and regular TV guest presenter slots on BBC’s Saturday Kitchen.
Other famous faces include Surrey based Chris Bavin, co-presenter on BBC’s Eat Well For Less and Martha Collinson, Great British Bake Off quarter finalist, food columnist and cookbook author. Also joining the TV line-up will be Laurence Henry, the reigning BBC MasterChef: The Professionals winner and Mark Tilling, chocolatier and winner of the first series of Bake Off Crème de la Crème.
The festival will also showcase some of Surrey’s finest restaurants and chefs, including Michelin masters Steve Drake, chef patron of Sorrel in Dorking and Tony Parkin, head chef for the Tudor Room at Great Fosters in Egham. Wine enthusiasts can also enjoy a selection of masterclasses and tastings.
There’s something for all the family with lots of family-friendly entertainment on the menu. Whether it’s getting sticky fingers at the children’s cupcake decorating workshops, creating culinary inspired masterpieces at the arts and crafts workshops or relaxing to live music and watching the world go by.
And best of all, the festival is free to attend, however some activities will be subject to advance booking and ticket fees.
