What's On: Foodies Festival, Edinburgh plus a GIVEAWAY

Next month the Foodies Festival is back at Edinburgh's Inverleith Park on 7th, 8th and 9th August. We had a brilliant time there last year and are super excited to be returning. It was such a fantastic weekend - you can find my previous post here and below is the vlog I created from our weekend antics. This year I'm taking my wee sister Ali & her other half Robin along with us - it's going to be so much fun.

For the 10th Anniversary Celebrations, the event is going to be 50% bigger and there are loads of interesting demos, an extended Producers Market and a huge selection of street food to feast upon...Japanese, Thai, Brazilian, Argentinian, Indian, Mexican, French, African...

There are some hands on masterclasses that sound intriguing... bee keeping, oyster shucking and foraging. There is going to be food and drink pairing masterclasses in the new Wine, Champagne and Craft Beer Theatre; daily cocktail competitions between local bars to find Edinburgh's Best Mixologist and cake modelling and sugar-craft workshops in the Cake & Bake Theatre. It all sounds brilliant!!

For the kids there are Picnic in the Park themed masterclasses in the Children's Cookery Theatre where they can learn to make finger sandwiches, jellies and chocolate bugs (all children under 12 years old go free when accompanied by an adult).

There is also a Chilli Eating Competition that I'm sure Rick will be up for.. can he win the Chilli Eating Crown?

And guess what? I have three pair of tickets up for grabs!! All you need to do is follow the Rafflecopter instructions below.

Thanks to @LanyardMedia for providing this prize


  1. Savoury wise, I love a good tagine, or sweet, it has to be a cheesecake.

    Really hope I win a ticket - I'd love to pop down to the festival. Loved your video from last year, it was funny how the demo guys were both flummoxed by you filming them!
    If I win you can tweet me @susan_barrie :-)

  2. Savoury - a good burger is hard to beat
    Sweet - gotta be chocolate every time!

  3. I was there last year on the Saturday. It was a great day! Hoping to go back this year but have some family stuff at the moment which makes planning anything impossible. Enjoy and I hope the sun shines. 😃

  4. Ooooh so many favourite foods. Currently loving seafood so I'll say a nice mussel and prawn dish in garlic sauce

  5. Cheese is my favourite food - I could eat it all day!

  6. I love cheese and chocolate!


  7. My favourite is Macaroni Cheese

  8. It somehow feels wrong to just pick one favourite food. There's just too many options. I'll just say pizza because it's my lazy answer and covers so much. Nice thin crust brick oven cooked pizza with fresh mozzarella and basil.

  9. I love Asian food so would love to try some new dishes

  10. A curry - as spicy as they come!

  11. m'mm hard choice but probably a good steak or a curry

  12. Got myself a pizza oven - so experimenting with homemade pizzas right now. Also, just back from the School of Wok learning to cook Chinese properly so that's also heavily on the menu.

  13. Curry! The hotter the better!
