Food and Drink Festival 2017...

Two of the country’s favourite celebrity chefs will headline this summer’s Our Bury St Edmunds Food & Drink Festival over the August Bank Holiday weekend. Jack Stein makes his first appearance in the Stoves Cookery Theatre on the Sunday. He is the middle son of Rick Stein and worked as a chef in his father’s restaurants as well as overseas before becoming Executive Chef of the Stein restaurants, pub and cookery school.

On Bank Holiday Monday Paul Rankin, best known as one of the longest standing and most successful chefs on ‘Ready Steady Cook’ will take to the stage. Paul is also a successful cookery author, with ‘New Irish Cookery’ and ‘Gourmet Ireland’ among his work.

This two-day free admission event has become a regular fixture in the town’s foodie calendar and promises to be bigger and better than ever for 2017. It also offers a host of other things to see and do, with something to please all ages. The urban beach will be in the arc shopping centre and on Abbeygate Street there’ll be a mini-farm with animals.

There will be more than 120 different food and drink stalls including a Farmers’ Market on Angel Hill. The Traverse will be turned into a picnic area.

The cooking demonstrations are the highlights of the two days and Jack and Paul will be putting on three shows each at 11am, 1pm and 3pm. In between their shows chefs from local establishments will demonstrate their culinary skills.

The Our Bury St Edmunds Food & Drink Festival runs from Sunday 27 to Monday 28 August throughout the town centre, opening at 10am each day.
