Stroud Chefs Wesley, Erin, Graham & Nicholas The Food and Drink Festival is a two-week celebration showcasing Stroud’s outstanding food businesses. We are delighted that the event has doubled in size this year, with more events and promotions for you to try.Whilst there are now lots of Food and Drink Festivals across the UK, many of them are clones of each other, involving outside exhibitors and celebrity chefs who are specially brought in for the event.In Stroud we wanted to do things differently and celebrate the local – the businesses that are here every day of the year. We think we have something to be proud of. So we set our colleagues the challenge of creating new ways to show off what they do best.The resulting programme is an interesting mix of new foods, themed events and special promotions. In an era dominated by supermarkets and multinationals, it is easy to lose touch with where your food comes from and who makes it. We are lucky to still have a great range of independent cafes, restaurants, markets, pubs, shops and producers who are part of the lifeblood of the local community. This festival forms part of a successful Shop Local campaign that has been running all year.Above all, the Stroud Food and Drink Festival is a celebration. It’s an opportunity to eat, drink and be merry with loved ones and friends. To enjoy simply being here in Stroud, in what many of us consider the loveliest place on earth.We look forward to seeing you over the fortnight!Wesley (J-RooL Bistro), Erin (Woodruffs Organic Café), Grahame (Kendrick Street Deli), Nicholas (Star Anise Arts Café). www.stroudfoodfest.com
