EAT! Food Festival Returns

EAT! Food Fest returns around the beautiful sunken gardens of the Grade I listed Reigate Priory on Saturday 23rd July 2016

Last year thousands brought the family, brought their granny, brought the kids and even brought the blanket to sit on and while away the day, eating drinking and enjoying everything that was on offer.

The Street Food court was amazing, they chomped through hundreds and hundreds of portions. We really did have the best producers around. They crammed into the demo tent, quaffed a lot of beer, bubbles & gin, played a spot of Croquet and listened to music in the late afternoon sunshine.

And we’re about to do it all over again.

Not only do we have the most incredible street food traders offering mouth-watering dishes from around the world, the highest quality producers but loads of demonstrations to get the best tips and tricks from fantastic chefs.

The FREE event starts at 11.00am and finishes at 6.00pm. Looking majestic around the sunken and formal gardens in front of the historic Reigate Priory, there will be on offer:

Street Food: Street Food court with traders who will be tempting everyone with their delicious world food from Taiwanese, Columbian, Galician seafood to Crepes, Indian wraps and churros.

Producers: Fifty high end producers to keep your store cupboards stocked up with sauces, oils, exquisite wines, precision knives, flavoured shortbread, bread, cheeses and more.

Drinks: Keeping everyone refreshed with award winning Silent Pool Gin, bubbles popping with The Vineking and quenching your thirst with real ale from Reigate’s own Pilgrim Brewery and a selection of craft beers and cider by Market Stores.

BBQ Masterclass: BBQ Chef Richard Holden will be demonstrating throughout the day offering top tips and tricks for barbecuing, smoking, marinades and rubs.

Pizza School: Award winning The Tinderbox will be giving away some of their secrets into what it takes to make the best pizza around. Get floury and hands on. Make it, cook it, eat it. Book online.

Demonstrations: We’re expecting the demo tent to be packed to the rafters to see Master Butcher Rob Hewitt of Robert and Edwards Butchers, Chef Tony Tobin from The Dining Room, Chef Max McKenzie of Salted Events, cake specialist Emma Fuller of Velvet Fig and Chef Hari Ghotra who will soon be heading up a new arm of Michelin starred Tamarind of Mayfair in Soho, Tamarind Kitchen.

Outdoor Games: Giant games and free croquet lessons courtesy of Jaques of London on the beautiful manicured croquet lawns next to Reigate Priory

Music: Keeping everyone entertained will be the Guildford Bucket Drummers and the ambient sounds of Hustler.
