YUM! has all the right ingredients
YUM! has all the right ingredients

The event took place across the city centre and involved many businesses from the BID area. King Edward Street hosted the popular continental market which for the first time saw the introduction of an authentic Polish beer garden as well as returning favourites such as the Italian delicatessen.

Along Princes Dock Side local businesses such as smoothie sellers Xing gave the public plenty of things to try while inside the tasty tents crowds jostled to try a variety of delicacies from home made chocolate to coffee made from locally roasted beans.

There was standing room only in the Chef’s Theatre as some of the area’s best chefs showed off their culinary skills, including the Michelin starred Pipe and Glass Inn chef James MacKenzie who gave the audience a masterclass in how to make food from local ingredients.

Trinity Square was turned over to children’s activities including cookie decorating, ‘grow your own’ bean planting and circus workshops.

City Centre Manager Kathryn Shillito said she was delighted at how the event had gone: "We achieved our objective of engaging BID businesses to participate in a heavily promoted city-wide food festival at no cost to themselves. Feedback from businesses both immediately surrounding the activity and further afield has been extremely positive with many benefiting from the large influx over the 3 days."
