Chefs and food service professionals are encouraged to book early for the 8th annual Universal Cookery and Food Festival (UCFF).

The annual event will take place on Tuesday 25 June 2019 at Farrington Oils in Northamptonshire.

A ticket to this year’s UCFF includes entry to the farmers market which will showcase the best of local and national producers and suppliers, foraging and farm tours, clay pigeon shooting, access to all live sessions including the main stage and game stage hosted by BASC, and inclusive of breakfast and lunch including a selection of hot and cold beverages throughout the day.

The price also includes an evening BBQ, beer and entertainment from a live band.

Designed by chefs, for chefs, each year the festival moves around the UK, taking the event directly to chefs in different locations. It is an excellent opportunity for foodservice professionals to gather and listen to thoughts and experiences from great chefs, industry experts, producers, suppliers, growers and thought leaders.

Lee Maycock, Universal Cookery and Food Festival director said: “Attending this year, you will be able to see the home of Britain’s first bottled cold pressed rapeseed oil (Mellow Yellow), spend some time foraging wild food, shoot some clay pigeons, wander through our artisan farmers market and watch some amazing demonstrations on both our stages. It is exciting to see the event evolve every year. We are looking forward to another amazing Universal Cookery and Food Festival.”

Confirmed speakers include: Tommy Heaney, Chef and owner of Heaney’s Cardiff,  Anjula Devi, consultant chef at Manchester United football club, Galton Blackiston, Chef proprietor of Morston Hall in Norfolk, Paul Foster, head chef at Salt in Warwickshire, Philip Martin, CEO and Founder of Blanco Niño and Kuba Winkowski, head chef at The Feathered Nest Country Inn in Oxfordshire and winner of the Craft Guild of Chefs National Chef of the Year 2019 title.

The event theme is “From the Land” and will focus on sustainability, alongside complimentary issues such as crowd funding, local heroes and ‘Mums in the kitchen’. The new dateline of June reflects pre-harvest, in line with the chosen venue. New to 2019, is a game stage, as well as falconry and the opportunity for clay pigeon shooting.

Book your ticket now for £120+VAT. This includes all your food and drink throughout the day (breakfast, lunch and refreshments), along with a BBQ and evening entertainment.
