Our Day at the Universal Cookery & Food Festival #UCFF2015
What a day!
Following on from the success of the 3rd Universal Cookery & Food Festival held last year at River Cottage, this year the ‘Glastonbury for Chefs’ came to Northumberland.
We managed to bag a great spot at Vallum Farm for our popular Chef7 van, and enjoyed a full day of learning and tasting with some of the best chefs & producers in the UK.
Vallum was the perfect location for this year’s festival, and the North East really was on show in all its glory. Every element of the day was a chance for chefs and producers to see the best of new kitchen tech and local produce, and to talk work outside of the kitchen. We loved hearing our ‘local heroes’ entertain the crowd, it was great to be part of such a fantastic showcase and to have so many nationally known chefs all together in Northumberland too.
From the outset this event promised to be a packed day, with guest speakers, a farm tour, cookery demos and an innovation zone – there was certainly a lot to take in – and all this before the evening entertainment of BBQ Beer & Band!
It’s always great to see the spotlight shine on your local area, we hope that those who travelled up, down & across the UK enjoyed it as much as the Crosbys team did!
And if you’d like our Chef7 van to visit you at your business, just give us a call and we can arrange a visit.
