Food Fair, June 6th – 9th 2019

A four day Food Fair featuring the best producers from across  Yorkshire, Cumbria and Lancashire is being planned at Country Harvest this summer.

The event includes two ticketed events:  former Great British Bake Off (GBBO) contestants Howard Middleton and Sandy Docherty will be giving a baking masterclass on the Thursday night and on the Saturday evening there will be a performance by 27 members of the  award winning Leyland Brass Band.

“It’s the first time we have held a Food Fair at Country Harvest and we hope to combine all the great things we do here under one marquee, together with loads of food stalls and mini masterclasses throughout the day. It’s still at the planning stages but we have some wonderful food suppliers signed up. All the daytime events will be free, with the  two evening ticketed ones  already selling well,” said Mike Clark, owner of Country Harvest.

The Food Fair, sponsored by Leisure Resorts, is being held from June 7th-9th with the baking masterclass with GBBO favourites Howard and Sandy kick starting the fun on the evening of Thursday, June 6th.

During the Food Fair there will be a sausage making demonstration; pie tasting masterclass; coffee tasting; lessons in how to make gin cocktails, cheese tastings and lots more.  Entry and all daytime masterclasses are free.

On the Sunday afternoon there will also be  a Junior Bake Off competition. “Last year we held a Bake Off competition for 25 bakers to make cakes to mark our 25th anniversary. It was the best event we have ever held, thanks to the enormous skill of the bakers involved and so we thought it would be great fun to have another cake competition, but for juniors,” said Mike.
