Come & enjoy the 2nd Food Festival at the National Trust property at Newark Park which in set in a beautiful 16th Century Tudor Hunting Lodge & magnificent views of the Mendips beyond
It will Be packed full of gorgeous local produce and a great assortment of street food with 60+ stall holders, live demo kitchen, lively library information & speakers room, cinema area & herb garden so a great day out 4 everyone. We will go for a meandering walk up to 2 to 3 miles after Food Festival.
With demonstrations running all day only be able to taste some delicious meals, but learn how to make the most of the animal through 'nose to tail eating', something which Love Food strongly advocates. One of the many Options We may learn; ''How to do'' hands on lessons will include learning how to pluck a pheasant or skin a rabbit, as well as being on hand to give advice and tips on all other aspects of game hunting and butchery. Other live demonstrations will be shown around the festival throughout the day.
Cookery lessons aside, this Love Food Festival will be jam-packed with a great selection of game. Warm up with a game stew and jacket potato or try some of ‘Old Sodburys’ delicious Badminton Hall venison burgers. Tuck in to some duck or glazed quail with quails eggs, or if that doesn’t tempt you then head over to ‘Hendra Barns’ and try some slow spit-roasted venison. For those feeling very daring, there is even ‘Lovetts’ squirrel, mushroom, wild garlic and truffle oil pie as well as a selection of pheasants, rabbits, venison and squirrel available to buy and prepare at home yourself.
On hand for the herbivores will be homemade hummus, sun-dried tomatoes and freshly stone baked pittas as well as some delicious Thai street food, Indian curries and crispy sweet churros with chocolate dipping sauce. The market will be full of delicious local produce, including ‘The Garlic Farm’, ‘MyStir’ personalised tisanes, cheddar cheeses by ‘Greens of Glastonbury’ and ‘Faithfulls’ award-winning loaf cakes, all to wash down with some homemade apple juices and freshly brewed coffees.
Do not miss ‘Dick Willows’ very special apple scout tent, equip with Neston Estate cheese, award-winning ciders and a whole lot of cider enthusiasm. A barrel of apples and a handmade apple press will keep children happy as they can have a go at making their own juice.
Discover 450 years of life at Newark Park, as it stands proud on top of the Cotswold escarpment, looking down into the Ozleworth valley to the Mendips beyond. This remote corner of south Gloucestershire is a secret and unspoilt place, with barely a sign of modern life visible in any direction. A place of architectural intrigue, quaint gardens and sprawling parkland there is much to see and do at Newark.
We will look around the Food Festival first then perhaps grab some exciting lunch treats along the way before embarking on a nice 2 to 3 mile walk hopefully led by other people who know or live in or nearby Wotton under Edge around Newark Park as I don't know the area at all. If you may help me or know someone that knows the area? Please let me know!!
I would like to look around The 11th Century Hunting Lodge on the National Trust property,
then explore some of the quaint gardens around the parkland.
