Launching Foodies Festival, Edinburgh’s favourite celebration of food and drink festival, as it returns to Edinburgh’s Inverleith Park on the 3,4,5 August 2018, MasterChef Champion 2018 Kenny Tutt will take to the stage for his very first live cookery demonstration in Edinburgh, showcasing his show-stopping summer recipes.

Kenny Tutt, commented:

Winning MasterChef still feels like a dream. I feel very lucky to continue my culinary journey by demonstrating at Foodies Festival this summer and can’t wait to come to the beautiful city of Edinburgh for the first time – the home of Foodies Festival.

Renowned Chef Nico Simeone of Six by Nico, commented:

Foodies Festival has really made its name as the UK’s best food and drink festival and I’m very excited to be joining this year’s line-up of exceptionally talented Edinburgh chefs in what’s set to be the best Foodies Festival yet.

The festival will celebrate live music into the night on the newly launched stage with performances from much-loved headliner Toploader and hugely admired band The Hoosiers. Supported by Musicians Against Homelessness, the live music stage will see talented emerging bands and solo artists perform with tickets raising money for UK-wide homelessness charity Crisis, with all funds being donated to help homeless people in Scotland.

Alan McGee, Patron of Musicians Against Homelessness, said:

Foodies Festival is the UK’s largest food and drink festival and with such fantastic summer events it seemed a natural link to partner with a festival that reaches the hearts of so many local communities. In turn, we’re confident that they can help us raise awareness and funds for our homelessness charity Crisis by bringing popular headliner bands to their stages alongside some of the country’s best unsigned musical talent.

An all-star line up will be cooking up a storm in the Chef’s Theatre, including renowned Nico Simeone of Six by Nico, Paul Wedgwood of Wedgwood Restaurant, Mark Greenaway, Graeme Cheevers of Martin Wishart at Loch Lomond, Fine Dining Chef of the Year 2018 Daniel Ashmore of The Pompadour by Galvin, Scott Davies of The Three Chimneys as well as Roy Brett of Ondine and Jerome Henry of Le Roi Fou to name but a few, all offering recipe secrets and tips to take home.

The Drinks Theatre will welcome expert mixologists and sommeliers to the stage, with Wine Tastings and Champagne Tastings from Diana Thompson, as well as speciality Craft Beer Tastings.

With a new expanded Kid Zone and Kids Cookery Theatre, pre-loaded super soakers and giant games, Foodies Festival is a fun day out for the whole family.

Fantastic live music adds the cherry on top of an unrivalled foodie feast, proving there’s no better place to be this summer than Foodies Festival – a gastronomic Glastonbury!
