Bit of a late post due to last week being somewhat mental. Anyhow, better late than never. We spent a very enjoyable afternoon wandering around the Leeds Food Festival last weekend. Of course the magnificent weather really helped proceedings but so did the event itself – it was excellent.
In previous years this event has struggled to get momentum but this year I felt it really hit its stride with excellent representation from a good selection of restaurants around the city and plenty of small food producers selling their wares. I would say that if they continue in this vein, next year’s festival will require a lot more space than Millennium Square.
Leeds deserves more events like this and the city has shown itself to be very diverse and sophisticated in its approach to food and the enjoyment of food. I’d like to see it push on next year and really up the ante with not only local chefs but internationally renowned chefs and produce.
And of course, we finished off the day sat out in the back garden in the sunshine eating all the delicious produce we’d found. Perfect.
