For the 9th year running, Blenheim Palace will hold its annual gastronomic Food Festival during the Bank Holiday weekend on Saturday, 27 May, until Monday, 29 May 2023, in Oxfordshire.
One of the UK’s largest outdoor food festivals, Blenheim Palace Food Festival 2023 guarantees a fantastic day out for all the family with celebrity masterclasses, a tasting tent for extensive sampling, entertainment for the children and high-quality local and national stallholders offering delicious delights.
This magnificent historical palace is a spectacular backdrop for a Q&A with chef royalty Raymond Blanc OBE, who will be headlining the festival in 2023 .
One of the finest chefs in the world, Raymond Blanc OBE is the Chef Patron at Michelin-starred Le Manoir aux Quat’Saisons. He commented: “I’m thrilled to be taking part in the BlenheimPalace Food Festival this year.
“It’s always such a delight coming together with a wealth of food and drink experts and meeting so many foodies with a few familiar faces. I’m looking forward to my Q&A and to seeing what’s on offer at the festival with so many unique and interesting stallholders.”
Event partner Blacklion Vodka is guaranteed to get the party started by shaking up some mouth-watering cocktails with their award-winning luxury vodka made with rare sheep’s milk. It’s 100% sustainable, impossibly smooth & flavourful.
Or joint event partner, Laithwaites, for one of their wine-tasting sessions. Discover weird and wonderful grape varieties that you may not have come across before.
