MORE than 70 stalls and demonstrations will be showcasing the best of local food at Sunday’s annual Louth Food Festival.
Louth Town Partnership have organised what promises to be another top event to rival last year’s which saw over 4,000 people flock onto Louth’s town centre streets.
One of the highlights this year will be a live cookery demonstration in the Market Place from Debbie Kenyon, the chef who worked alongside TV’s Jamie Oliver.
The festival will emphasise Louth’s importance as a centre for Lincolnshire’s finest sausages, breads and cakes, cheeses, vegetables, preserves, sauces and other produce.
Local shops will be open for the day, butcher Trevor Fairburn will serve up a hog roast, there will be arts and crafts traders, music and entertainment.
There will also be live entertainment throughout the day from local schools and performers.
Patrick Neville, chairman of the Louth Town Partnership’s Food and Drink Group, said: “While our focus is on Louth and Lincolnshire, several traders will be selling their own international specialities including Italian breads, German sausages, olives and baklavas and Turkish delight.”
“It all adds to Louth’s growing reputation as a good food town.”
The Food Festival is this Sunday, from 10am until 4pm in Louth Town Centre.
Parking and admission are free.
