Exeter Festival of South West England Food and Drink
If you've ever salivated over a Devon clotted cream tea, downed a pint of scrumpy cider or enjoyed a Somerset cheddar, the Exeter Festival of South West England Food and Drink at Exeter Castle is for you.
With some of the most fertile land in the country supporting the production of fine organic fruit and vegetables, award-winning dairy and meat products, the South West is undergoing a culinary renaissance, led by the likes of Michael Caines, who demonstrates his art at the Cookery Theatre. Masterclasses, wine and beer tasting, workshops and cooking demonstrations fill the castle grounds.
The festival encourages visitors to meet farmers, producers and some of the region's top chefs. Learn all about seasonality, taste, cooking and the environmental impact of sourcing food close to home.
