The aim of the festival is to make the connection between produce and ingredient real, as visitors follow a culinary trail throughout the grounds, enjoying a wide range of "tasting" dishes served throughout the day at alfresco demonstration kitchens set up in the grounds. Local wild food expert, Chris Bax, will be giving talks on how to find and harvest nature's own edible shoots, berries, roots and leaves, while advice and tips on designing, planting and cultivating your own kitchen garden will be given by Susan Cunliffe-Lister.
