Cowes Food Show

You just can't beat home grown vegetables, can you? That's why Red Funnel is sponsoring the upcoming Cowes Food Show, which is taking place in Cowes (obviously) this coming April 27th.

The Isle of Wight is home to some truly incredible fine and delicious eatables. As one of the greenest parts of the UK, its patchwork fields of various emerald shades are home to plenty of farms that make a living on the finest produce.

And it's not just from a professional standpoint either - growing your own vegetables on the island is a source of pride and something for the locals to gossip over (and occasionally compete with one another).

From organically grown tomatoes and oak smoked garlic to freshly baked artisan bread and delicious dairy ice cream perfect for that day on the beach, you'll be watering at the mouth from the moment you arrive.

But it's not just an opportunity to purchase home grown ingredients - there will be plenty of action going on at the demonstration stage, where the Isle of Wight's renowned cooks will be taking to the stove with some impressive recipes.

Pick up a few tips from legendary local chef Robert Thompson, for example, or find out what Chocolate Mad Cowes is doing to perfect their best dark chocolate.

Previous incarnations of the event have attracted more than 40 exhibitors, and while the April 27th is still being booked, it's likely that warm weather will bring out even more excellent food producers.

This is a foodie's dream, but if you can't be on the island for the date, don't despair. The Cowes Food Show is a regular event and will return the weekend of June 21st, September 14th for the Harvest Festival, and once more for the weekend of December 13th.

No matter when you're planning to go, better book those ferry tickets now.ADNFCR-3083-ID-801705326-ADNFCR
