Launching at the Aldeburgh Food and Drink Festival

At Food Safari we're supporting the Aldeburgh Food and Drink Festival 2008 which takes place at Snape Maltings by launching the business and holding our first event!

We feel very excited (and privileged) to be able to use the festival as a launch pad for our new venture. This month the festival was described by Rose Prince, Telegraph food writer as "the most significant food festival in Britain". That's saying quite a lot as dozens on festivals have sprung up in recent years to meet the seemingly insatiable demand from foodies for food information, entertainment and insights into local producers.
The main festival is taking place this weekend 27-28 September at Snape Maltings (an amazing place if you haven't been) which is home each to the world famous Aldeburgh Festival of music and for the last few years has also played host to one of the UK's most succesful food festivals.
The Food Safari team will be at Snape on Saturday and then over at our friends' Rob and Karen White's organic farm - Peakhill - at Kelsale on Sunday to host a farm walk and festival feast to wrap up what promises to be a fantastic weekend. Hope to see you there.
And I'll be on BBC Radio Suffolk on Thursday morning at about 11.20 talking about Food Safari and this weekend's event.

The Aldeburgh Food and Drink Festival is all about celebrating the quality and diversity of food we have in this beautiful coastal region of East Suffolk. Marks & Spencer, with their commitment to food quality, is a perfect partner for us”, commented Alesha Gooderham, co-organiser of the Festival and the Snape Maltings site.
