Following the success of last year’s inaugural festival, Taste East Devon is to return this year from 3-18 September, extending into a 16 day celebration.
Award-winning venues, producers, chefs and restaurants across East Devon have joined forces again to celebrate the incredible food and drink on offer across the region.
Founder Members include THE PIG-at Combe, Darts Farm, Otter Brewery, Deer Park Country House, River Cottage, East Devon AONB, Donkey Sanctuary, Mazzard Farm, Jack in the Green and Lympstone Manor.
Ruud Jansen Venneboer, Taste East Devon Chair and owner of Mazzard Farm accommodation, said: “East Devon has an incredible food community, and it was amazing to see so many world-class businesses join together and really put our county on the map.
“We kick started it all off with the iconic, Ottery St Mary Food and Families Festival and finished with a fabulous Garden Party at THE PIG-at Combe.
“During the festival, we had a whole host of events; an evening with Hugh Fearnley-Whittingstall at River Cottage and a Field, Fire, Ferment feast in Darts Farm’s new restaurant, The Farm Table.
“Tasting Experiences and set menus at The Jack and The Green, The Salutation Inn and the Donkey Sanctuary.
“Brewery Tours and tastings with Otter Brewery.
“Hands on masterclasses and DIY bike tours.
“The list goes on, and this year we hope to make it bigger and better.”
