Food fest

Food fest

In case you haven’t noticed, we are in the middle of the Brighton and Hove Food Festival. This week is set to be a special one; not only is it right in the middle of the best foodie festival ever hosted in Sussex, it’s also packed with wine and food tasting sessions – always your favourites!

Some of the events cost, so we’ve compiled the best of the free ones, that way even people who aren’t so interested in foods can learn about good fresh produce without paying for the privilege.

So, here’s what’s on the menu.

Wednesday 15th: Churchill Square farmers market and live food kitchen.

Don’t expect herds of sheep, country types in tweeds, or cows with rings through their noses – that would be a load of bull. However, what you will find is excellent local produce, seasonable fruit and vegetables from local farmers, fresh meat and fish, cheese and breads, and food demonstrations – and those samples, mmm.

Saturday 18th: Cheese tasting at Infinity Foods, North Road/ Wine tasting at 21 Prince Albert Street

If you are new to the town or staying in a hotel in Brighton there’s a chance you haven’t visited Infinity Foods. You really should if you care about organic foods and cosmetics; it’s the largest supplier of both we know. Well, High Weald Diary will be running cheese tasting sessions, so you can tuck into locally made organic vegetarian cheeses.

Ridgeview, a local winery, will be at the Sheridan Coopers Wine Cellar to show off their award winning sparkling wines, so pop along for a frizante or glass of fizzy pop.

Cockney food night, lovely jubbly!

Cockney food night, lovely jubbly!

Now, if you’re planing on eating out anyway, why not set aside the cash for one of the paid events?

There’s Pudding Club at Temptation in Gardner Street, fruit cookery workshops, a Champagne mini festival, a Brazilian night at the seafront Umi Grill, Sake testing at Moshi Moshi, and our favourite: Cockney Night, when under Kings Road Arches £20 gets you fish and chips, drinks, entertainment and a ride on the carousel – all the fun of the food fair!

For Vegetarians and The Meat-Eaters Who Love Them

aug09 026

So you’re dating a vegetarian? You eat meat? That’s kind of like finding out she’s a Tory, when you’re firmly Labour. What can one do? You contemplate eating “rabbit food” on date nights and spend many nights looking for restaurants where you can both eat comfortably, without her flipping out.  Your trip to Brighton will be painless, actually enlightening.

If you wonder about vegetarian food, you need to try Wai Kika Moo Cafe Kau in the North Laines. You’ll be converted by the nacho plate alone.  This place also does a phenomenal chai latte shake. Read the rest of this entry »
