Red Funnel Cowes Food Show hailed a success

08-08-2012 The sun shines on the first Red Funnel Cowes Food Show

The first Red Funnel Cowes Food Show took place at Town Quay (adjacent to the Fountain Inn) in glorious sunshine on the 5th August and was such a fantastic success that two more have already been planned before the end of the year.

Visitors attending the show enjoyed a host of delicious local produce from across the Island, had the chance to take part in a cake baking competition and learn tips from expert Isle of Wight chefs at the Food Theatre.

Tom Pell-Stevens, Red Funnel's Marketing Manager commented 'We were delighted with the support we received from the local community, the producers and chefs which included award winning Robert Thomson from the Hambrough and Justin Brown from the Farringford.  Feedback from attendees was overwhelmingly positive, so much so we have confirmed we will be running two more Cowes Food Shows later this year!'

The next two shows, which will be be themed around Halloween and Christmas will be on Sunday 28 October and Sunday 9 December. Anyone interested in exhibiting local produce or doing a demonstration at the Food Theatre should email Louise Hart via
