Following a record-breaking Summer Foodies Festival at Inverleith Park, the 15th Christmas Foodie Festival will take place at the Edinburgh International Conference Centre from 22-24 November 2019.
The organisers are delighted that Masterchef 2019 winner Irina Tzortzoglou will join the Scottish runner up Jilly McCord in presenting cookery demonstrations. There will also be a host of Scottish chefs, with festival favourites such as Neil Forbes and Mark Greenaway to others new to the Foodies Festival.
With Masterclass sessions at previous festivals proving incredibly successful, this year these will be expanded to two venues within the EICC. The first will have classes on begels, canapés, cake making and decorating and the second will have classes on garland making, Christmas cocktail as well as wine and champagne tasting.
The children’s events have also proved popular so this section of the weekend’s programme will also be expanded with lots of classes on baking and Christmas crafts.
Visitors to festival can expect over 100 stalls selling some of the best produce that Scotland has to offer in both food and drink. Whilst browsing and tasting what is on offer they will be entertained by local choirs getting them in the spirit with Christmas carols and popular seasonal songs.
