On Saturday 7th April around 100 resident and visitors applauded Crail Food Festival
Event Manager Graham Anderson of The Honeypot Guest House and Tearoom as
he announced the plans for the summer programme of Crail Food Festival 2012. The
Saturday night launch event was used to raise funds and was supported by 35 food
businesses operating within The Kingdom of Fife. Julien Poix of local Anstruther
delicatessen La Petite Epicerie prepared a tasting preview of some of the quality food
and drink that will feature in June and beers from Innis & Gunn and St Andrews
Brewing Company helped keep everyone in good spirits.
The summer event which will take place between 15th and 17th June is a follow up
to last years outstanding success which received over 2,000 visitors and generated a
£15,000 visitor spend. The three day programme starts on Friday evening 15th June
with some entertainment and will be followed with a Saturday Fife food producers
market, cookery demonstrations, tasting classes, kids competitions and bake off. A
traditional Scottish evening of music and food will be held on Saturday night with
a Fife supper prepared by local caterers and producers. Everything then moves to
the iconic setting of Crail harbour on Sunday for an afternoon extravaganza of food
tasting, music and fun for all the family.
This stuff is just... awesome!
