20th - 22nd September 2019 

September heralds the return of food, beer and music festival Abbfest. For over 14 years the volunteer-run fest has raised impressive funds for local charities and organisations and this year is shaping up to be another excellent and indulgent occasion.

Attendees will be able to hop between stalls offering fantastic food from local provenance while revelling in on-site entertainment and live music. But one of the main draws is the smashing line-up of chefs holding cookery demonstrations.

Our own executive head chef Dez Turland will be hosting the Abbfest Saturday Kitchen, welcoming talented chefs to join him cook in the thrilling demos. Chefs participating include Lewtrenchard Manor’s head chef Tom Browning; Ground Up Cookery School’s Colin Wheeler-James; The Swan’s head chef Paul Berry; Exeter Cookery School’s head chef Jim Fisher; The Woodland Cafe’s Stuart Crook and one of Eastern Eye’s chefs.
