Hampshire Food Festival Extended
This year’s Hampshire Food Festival has been extended from its original two-week format to run for the whole month of July 2008. The Festival celebrates Hampshire’s finest food and drink, and this year, features 120 different events.

Many of the events take place in and around Winchester and include chocolate and jam-making master-classes, a beekeeping experience, a cookery survival course for young adults, hog roast and farm tour of Sparsholt College (Hampshire’s leading Agricultural College) and heritage events.

Hampshire Food Festival visitors can also win a luxury two-night break at Lainston House Hotel near Winchester, which is renowned for its use of local produce. Lainston’s Executive Chef Andy MacKenzie was awarded Hampshire Chef of the Year at last year’s Hampshire Life Food & Drinks Awards dinner, which is held at the same time as the Festival.
Chef Gordon Ramsay has given his support to this year’s Hampshire Food Festival in July by writing the foreword to the Festival programme. Gordon says: “Hampshire appeals to me so much that I bought a home here last year. I’ve met with local farmers and producers who are so passionate in their work and the food they produce. Do make sure that you take part in The Hampshire Food Festival this year. With so much going on, it is a fascinating insight into the range of wonderful food produced, grown and reared across the county”.
