Cosford Food Festival at RAF Museum
A tasty line-up of over 90 local producers has been announced for this year's Cosford Food Festival, which promises to serve up the very best food and drink the Midlands has to offer.
Popular favourites on the food festival scene as well as brand new local producers are all on board for this year's festival, which takes place on 22-23 July 2017. Held in the unique setting at the Royal Air Force Museum Cosford, a bustling food market will showcase some of the region's finest artisan produce and locally brewed beverages. On top of 66 popular favourites, 26 new producers will be joining the Cosford Food Festival for the first time, making this year's event the biggest and the best yet.
The diverse menu on offer will include everything from Indian, Italian and French cuisine to a taste of the Caribbean with Cuban and Mexican food to tempt visitors. Gourmet burgers, hot dogs and ribs along with chicken tikka flatbreads are the perfect hot food option for those who love a summer BBQ - all washed down with a freshly ground cup of coffee or maybe a glass of fizz from the Champavan! For those who can't resist something sweet, traditional dairy ice creams, waffles, crepes and milkshakes will all be on offer.
Festival goers will be treated to live performances from the Cosford Military Wives Choir on Saturday and the Shawbury Military Wives Choir on Sunday, two magnificent performances not to be missed. A guaranteed highlight on Saturday afternoon will be the unmistakable sound of a Second World War aircraft, as the Battle of Britain Memorial Flight Dakota flies overhead during a spectacular flypast (scheduled for 1.15pm weather permitting).
With a jam packed programme of demonstrations over the festival weekend, visitors can learn from the experts on how to prepare, cook and present a range of exciting dishes. Festival organisers have signed up some exciting new chefs for this year’s festival including Shropshire celebrity chef Marcus Bean as well as popular favourites from previous years, ensuring the demo stage has an entertaining and varied line up for visitors both days.
Ensuring there is plenty to do for the little foodies, Kid’s Corner is an entire area packed with entertainment for youngsters. Kiddy Cook will be running five cookery workshops each day and this year’s theme will be celebrating the red poppy and how poppy seeds can be used in cooking - children will get hands-on decorating cupcakes, biscuits and cheesy shortbread to take away and eat. Spaces are limited to 20 children per session, so if you have any future chefs in the family, book now to guarantee your place by visiting www.rafmuseum.org/cosford.
Now in its fifth year, the festival is firmly established on the Museum's events calendar, attracting thousands of foodies each day. With additional entertainment and live music being lined up for festival goers, organisers are confident the event will not only appeal to food lovers but also families who are looking for an enjoyable day out.
