NEWS: Edinburgh Food Festival Returns to George Square for 10th Anniversary

Edinburgh Food Festival

The Edinburgh Food Festival has announced the programme for their 10th anniversary edition set to take place in Assembly George Square Gardens from Friday 19th to Sunday 28th July.

A spokesperson for the festival said: "The opening weekend is all about Scottish food excellence as the Edinburgh Food Festival hosts the 15th annual Scottish Street Food Awards. Nine mobile kitchen teams will battle it out for a place in the British Street Food Finals and serve up their very best menus to be considered for the all-important People’s Choice Award. Included on the judges panel are gourmet greats Gaby Soutar, Food Editor of The Scotsman; ex-Head Chef of Condita Conor Toomey; and comic Jay Lafferty. They’ll be sampling dishes from Steam Bunny, Knights Kitchen, Pit Beef Boys, and more as they battle for the chance to be crowned this year’s Street Food Champion."

Edinburgh Food Social also returns to the Tree House Kitchen. The social enterprise will run three workshops looking at Family Feasts, Conscious Cooking, and Fun with Flour, a hands-on demonstration in pasta making. The Tree House Kitchen will also be hosting a series of live demonstrations and panel talks with MasterChef 2022 Finalist Sarah Rankin and the team from Butchery At Bowhouse will be in residence with two butchery demonstrations and Edinburgh brewery Vault City will deliver an introduction to the world of sours with a guided tasting of some of their most unique brews. Meanwhile South Loch Gin distillery will be joined by industry peers from across the country to discuss the future of one of Scotland’s most prolific artisan products.
