WIN a Pair of Tickets to the Foodies Festival Christmas

Last year at around this time I ran a competition to win tickets to the Foodies Christmas Festival and this year… I’m doing the same!

I have 2 pairs of tickets to giveaway for this fantastic event which is a must go to for any food lover. But even if you’re not a mad foodie, the excitement of Christmas food and markets is something anyone can enjoy.

Foodies Christmas Festival

Retro recipes in the Chefs Theatre, vegan treats in the Artisan Christmas Market, Champagne Ski Bar and a London Gin Theatre are just some of the festive features you can look forward to as Foodies Festival Christmas returns to London’s Truman Brewery 27th – 29th November.

Following the popularity of last year’s inaugural Foodies Festival Christmas, East London’s Truman Brewery will once again be transformed into a culinary winter wonderland, as they bring London’s top chefs, award-winning artisan producers and international street food together under one roof for a fabulous festive feast.

Acclaimed London chefs and celebrity cooks will swap their aprons for Santa hats in the Aga Rangemaster Chefs Theatre, sharing their favourite recipes and top tips to help visitors create the perfect Christmas banquet. Confirmed chefs include (more TBA):

Adam Simmonds – Michelin Star & Great British Menu Winner 2014

Dhruv Baker – MasterChef Winner 2010

Jesse Dunford Wood – PARLOUR
Adam Handling – Adam Handling at Caxton
David Degiovanni – Union Street Cafe
Kim Woodward – Savoy Grill

Omar Allibhoy – Tapas Revolution
Michael Weiss – Quiglanos
Matt Robinson – Bluebird Cafe
Richard Kirkwood – The Wright Brothers

Retro Recipes in the Chefs Theatre will transport festival-goers back in time to the 1960s when green piped potato, glacé cherries and multi-coloured cheese and jellies were all the rage. Inspired by infamous TV chef Fanny Cradock, several chefs will recreate classic recipes such as the Prawn Cocktail, Baked Alaska, Sherry Trifle, Chicken Kiev, Vol-au-vents and Duck a l’Orange in their own signature style.

An Artisan Christmas Market boasts over 150 of the finest producers selling locally produced cheeses, chutneys, chocolates, sauces and jams, biscuits and crackers, cakes, puddings and more for visitors to sample and shop from; perfect for picking-up those little extras that make Christmas extra tasty and special.

A Vegan area in the Christmas Market offers a range of delicious and healthy vegan, veggie and gluten-free treats for visitors to indulge in including desserts, street food, bakes, condiments, beers, wines and more.

London Gin Theatre – Gin lovers will rejoice as London’s gin producers host daily Christmas Gin Cocktail masterclasses. Wine experts Charles Metcalfe and Neil Philips are also on-hand helping visitors match wines with Christmas flavours in the Drinks Theatre and beer expert Melissa Cole champions craft beers as an alternative to wine and champagne this Christmas in masterclasses with local brewers.

Other features of the festival include an outdoor Street Food Courtyard where visitors can feast of flavours from around the world; a Cake & Bake Theatre hosted by London’s top bakers, chocolatiers and Great British Bake Off contestants an accompanying Pudding Hall – a haven of sweet treats selling festive favourites such as eggnog and mulled wine, Christmas cake and mince pies, marzipan bonbons and macaroons.

While parents shop and enjoy a chilled glass of bubbly from the Champagne Ski Bar, children under 12 can enrol in the Elf Cookery School with Kiddy Cook, where they can bake and decorate snowballs, gingerbread men, cookies and cupcakes to leave out for Santa.

Just like Christmas day there is lots of post-feasting fun to be had with live music, local choirs singing carols and entertainment throughout the day. Visitors can enter the Chilly-Eating Competition (the winter version of the famous chilli contest), register their team to compete in the Christmas Bumper Quiz and have a group Christmas jumper picture taken in the photo booth.

So to be in with a chance of winning a pair of tickets, simply enter via the Gleam widget. But be quick, this comp is only running for two weeks!
