Hitting three London destinations, Foodies Festival is back for it’s 11th year – and we’ve got a pair of VIP tickets to give away.

Foodies Festival has become the staple diet of our summer calendar, always packed with top chefs, fascinating demonstrations, oodles of champagne, beer and wine tastings and rows of artisan producers and street-food vendors, this is not to be missed. And this year, Blackheath joins Alexandra Palace and Syon Park with a brand new Foodies Festival.

What is it?

Foodies Festival offers the perfect blend: the more chilled out visitors can while away a few hours on the grass tasting their way through top street-food trucks and stay entertained with live music acts, while the more determined foodies among us can sign themselves up to live demonstrations in the Chefs Theatre and tastings in the Cake, Bake and Tasting Theatre, plus try a few tipples in the Drinks TheatreSorted.

What to Try…

If you want food that makes you feel good as well as taste fantastic, you’ll love this year’s Feel Good Foods theme. Healthy living chefs and food writers will explain nutritional and emotional benefits linked to eating ‘Feel Good Foods’ such as cheese (a source of phenylethylamie – the so-called love drug) and dark chocolate and seaweed (both sources of serotonin – the happy drug). Plus, check out how to cook with superfoods including kefir, lucuma, freekeh, kelp and banana flour, and sirt rich foods such as blueberries, kale, celery, buckwheat, turmeric, chilli and red onion.
