The 2nd, 3rd and 4th of July sees Roundhay Park playing host to the Foodies Festival, the Leeds debut of a major food festival which spans four sites over four weekends this year.
The festival is part of the wider Leeds Loves Food festival, which sees events taking place across the city.
Despite my low level hatred for the word ‘foodie’, the festival looks like it should be good, with a range of food and drink masterclasses, a produce market and a cookery theatre playing host to some proper local talent, including the brilliant Mohammed Aslam from the Aagrah and Harvey Nichol’s Richard Allen.
There are some masterclasses for kids lined up, too. Anything that ends up with kids getting their hands dirty in the kitchen is a good thing in my book.
