Book a masterclass

This was my first visit to Aldeburgh Food and Drink Festival and what a wonderful part of the country it is too. The event itself was packed with truly unique and interesting producers and exhibitors, making it the ultimate food show for REAL food lovers. Plenty to do and see, lots to eat and drink and the variety of things to participate was incredible. I don’t think they will be able to keep me away next year, although this time, I plan on staying the whole weekend.
