This year’s Thame Food Festival is promising to be a real destination for the last weekend in September (29th and 30th) with a myriad of extensive food and drink experiences. The very latest to join the already packed programme are Bell Kitchens.
They will be running free pizza making workshops through-out the event using Clementi wood fired pizza ovens. This will be topped off by several interactive demonstrations from the Clementi team themselves who are coming over from Italy, especially for the event to show what these ovens can really do! Alongside will also be some other demonstrations revealing the many different ways you can cook using one of their intriguingly named products – the Big Green Egg! This is not only a barbecue for grilling steaks and sausages, but a smoker, a roaster and a pizza maker and even a baker. And just like last year they will be joined by Farmer Lou – their preferred meat supplier – who will be offering delicious sausage rolls and serving up a storm with their hog roast. So obviously, as is always the case at Thame Food Festival there will be sampling galore!
If the food side of things is not enough to tempt you, then it is worth visiting the Bell Kitchen stand to find out more about their very latest product called Uberstar. This is a dry mix that you add to alcohol to make a cocktail! The simple process is to steep the dry mix with vodka or Bacardi (depending on the cocktail). At the festival the Bell Kitchen team will be using it to mix up a jug with soda or juice and serving small samples in shot glasses. If you love it, then the dry non-alcoholic mix will be available to purchase, take away and make at home.
As Lotte Duncan Patron and Organiser of Thame Food Festival says; “Building on last year, we wanted to mix up Thame Food Festival even more this year, by extending the event in a variety of different ways. The result is going to be so many more different activities, experiences and demonstrations; some of which we are still working on. So with so much going on, many will find they want to come for the day or even extend their visit over the weekend in order to make the most of the event, which is why we are also now offering the option for a two day ticket for advance bookings.”
