The Highcliffe Revival Food Festival is back and it’s bigger and better than ever, says Tracey Beesley, who is part of the committee organising this tasty event

The word ‘Revival’ could not be more relevant to us right now. With new builds and new energy coming to Highcliffe-on-Sea, we have extended our food festival into a weekend celebration, with events happening up, down and around Lymington High Street.

As part of the committee of volunteers behind the Highcliffe Revival Food Festival, headed up by the inspirational Mary Reader (founder of Christchurch Food & Wine Festival), I can reveal that we have a stellar line-up of food heroes.

On Saturday The Ciffhanger is hosting a lunch for Dorset-based chef and food writer Lesley Waters. Well known for her appearances on TV shows such as Ready Steady Cook and This Morning, Lesley is a passionate champion of cooking with local produce. (Contact The Cliffhanger for bookings).

Other chefs on the festival’s menu include: Luke Matthews (Executive Head Chef at Chewton Glen), Manuel Salomon (The Cliffhanger), Colin Nash (The Three Tuns at Bransgore), Kevin Brown (The Lord Bute), Ian Gibbs (Executive Head Chef at Urban Guild) and Jennifer Williams the expert forager and preserve maker from Naked Jam.

We also have lots going on in the high street with stalls offering a wide range of artisan foods and drink, including Highcliffe’s award-winning butcher Chris Watson selling his wonderful burgers and sausages. Plans are also well underway for a ‘Cookery Hub’ in the Methodist Church Hall with a cookery theatre and ‘Kids Kitchen’; the children’s baking competition will also be displayed in the hall.

There’s a delicious array of workshops in the Sports & Social Club including a Yoga Breakfast, Japanese Tea Ceremony and Cocktail Masterclasses by the Gin Monocle. Sunday afternoon features chocolate making workshops with Chocolates by Miss Witt. Kerry Witt is a master chocolatier who has won numerous accolades, including awards from the World Academy of Chocolate. Tickets for all these events are available from the Blue Sky Deli.

Also on Sunday you can visit the newly opened Chewton Glen Cookery School. There will also be events and special offers at Highcliffe Castle and in local restaurants throughout the weekend. All of this together with over 60 acts offering musical entertainment means that this is going to be great weekend celebration for our village by the sea.

Let’s go!

20 – 21 May: The Highcliffe Revival Food Festival runs 10am – 5pm. Find more at www.highclifferevivalfoodfestival.co.uk.
