North Norfolk Food and Drink Festival

 

The first weekend in September means one thing at HQ: lots and lots and lots of baking for the wonderful North Norfolk Food and Drink Festival at Holkham Hall.

The walled gardens in full glory

The walled gardens in full glory

Now in it's 7th year, the festival is by far the biggest and best food and drink in Norfolk.  It takes place in the spacious and stunning setting of the enormous 6 acre walled gardens; (which in themselves are a worth exploring for a few hours), bringing together all of our fellow producers for a veritable cornucopia of locally made, yummy edibles and drinkables. 

We'll be taking our usual selection of award winning small and medium sized pies: the oh so popular onion marmalade, the warming chilli, the smokey chorizo, our summer special 'Wiveton' (lemon, parsley and garlic) and the anything but traditional 'Naked'. Oh, and just a few of our delicious sausage rolls.

We're also unveiling a rare special edition variety - the Piccalilli.  We've teamed up with Jubberwacky and included a nugget of their very special piccalilli in the centre.  A picnic in one pie.  But you'll have to be quick, they are very limited edition and we always sell out fast.

The festival is on Saturday 3rd and Sunday 4th at Holkham Hall and is open 10am - 4pm.  Entry is free and includes the chance to see the beautiful gardens.   Car parking (right next to the gardens), is £3.  Dogs are welcome too.  

If you can't make it, worry not.  We're always sending pies out to our many stockists all over the country.  You can find them all here and, very very soon we'll be opening our very own online pie shop so you can have the quintessential taste of Norfolk delivered to your door.
