Nottingham Food & Drink Festival 2012

Nottingham Food & Drink Festival 2012

Organisers of the Nottingham Food and Drink Festival have announced a host of new ingredients, which are set to make this year’s event the most varied yet.

Now in its fourth year, the Festival is once again organised by We Are Nottingham, the Business Improvement District (BID) for licensed premises in the city centre, with the headline sponsor for 2012 being bmibaby.

Running from Wednesday 4 July until Sunday 8 July, the centrepiece of the Festival will be a local and regional food and drink market in Nottingham’s Market Square, with over 40 stalls. The market will also feature a new beer and wine sampling area, stocked with a wide selection of wines and locally produced real ales.

The demo theatre will also make a welcome return, newly extended for 2012. Acclaimed chef, broadcaster and writer Richard Fox will host demonstrations by some of Nottingham’s finest chefs, as well as taking to the hob himself.

Richard has developed a reputation for cooking with beer and is known as ‘The Beer Chef’, providing the perfect complement to the introduction of beer and wine sampling at this year’s Festival.

Once again, restaurants and bars across the city centre will be hosting a varied programme of events and masterclasses, with everything from sushi making to blind cocktail tasting.
