After a great event in 2013 the Sheffield Food Festival will be returning in 2014 bigger, better and tastier than ever.

A recipe for gluten-free biscuits hand-delivered by a Great British Bake Off star, cooking masterclasses with some of the region’s best chefs and a wartime kitchen are just some of the highlights of this year’s new-look Sheffield Food Festival.
This Sheffield Hallam University-organised festival will stretch from The Moor Market towards the city centre as the University celebrates a new partnership with Sheffield City Council City Centre Management and Major Events team and Scottish Widows Investment Partnership Trust (SWIPT).

Events will be sited at a number of key locations within the City Centre during the course of the Festival, these will include:

The Moor
Home to the Festival Kitchen which will feature a rolling programme of local and celebrity chef demonstrations, competitions and interviews; a huge variety of food traders as part of the food market, street food caterers and a number of exciting promotional exhibitors alongside further family activities.

The Peace Gardens
Home to the Sheffield Breweries Co-Operative mini beer festival, a host of pop-up restaurants from Sheffield’s independent restaurant scene, further artisan market traders and will feature a scheduled programme of live entertainment curated by Young Music.

Town Hall Square
Will see the return of last year’s Festival favourite the allotment, led by Green Estate and supported by Ferndale Garden Centre. Town Hall Square will be transformed into a beautiful, and edible, allotment garden with lots of planting and growing activities and the potting shed to relax in.

Visit the website for a copy of the food festival programme and for more details of this year’s programme.
