Bath businesses are cooking up a host of great events for the Great Bath Feast in October 2015. The Great Bath Feast , the biggest food festival in the South West, is a month-long celebration providing an opportunity to taste new flavours, learn new culinary skills, seek out different experiences and meet celebrity chefs.
The Great Bath Feast is now in its fourth year. With over 90 businesses involved putting on 120 events over the month of October 2015 this event is growing in its success. The BID has been instrumental in leading and establishing this event in response to the desire of businesses to drive more footfall into the city during the autumn. With an investment of £20,000 from the BID this has enabled other organisations to come forward and offer their support for this year’s event.
Highlights of the month take place in special Bath locations including a gin tasting at the Holburne Museum arranged by the Bath Gin Company, The Fine Cheese Company’s gathering of the nation’s top artisan cheese makers in Bath Abbey, a highly theatrical evening to mark the 150th anniversary of Alice in Wonderland , the Madhatter’s Masquerade Dinner, at The Old Theatre Royal and a producer’s market in the Hartley Farm tipis set in Queen’s Square . “Beer and Buildings” provides an architectural trail of some of the city’s best loved pubs.
Among the line-up of celebrity chefs, Topping and Company feature talks by Nigella Lawson, Tom Kerridge and John Torode. Raymond Blanc discusses his successful TV series “Kew on a Plate” at Brasserie Blanc and Gennaro Contaldo visits Jamie’s Deli in Milsom Place to share his enthusiasm for Italian cuisine. TV chef Matt Tebbutt is featured as guest presenter at Lucknam Park Cookery School and the Bertinet Kitchen presents an impressive list of special guests like Dhru Baker author of “Spice”. Chef, TV personality and best-selling author Gino D’Acampo is appearing at the Forum with a live stage show cooking up his signature Italian dishes.
