Hosted by Surrey Life Food & Drink Awards sponsors Local Food Britain at Guildford’s G Live entertainment venue, a brand new food and drink festival is bringing the best of Surrey and beyond to our county town this September

Guildford entertainment venue G Live will be hosting the first ever food and drink festival curated by Local Food Britain.

The event on Sunday September 10 will put members of the local food networking group in the spotlight to showcase their quality produce and give visitors the chance to sample the best the region has to offer.

Guildford’s very own Surrey Hills Coffee and Surrey Spice will be there, as well as artisans from surrounding Surrey villages and towns including Mummy Makes Fudge from Farnham, Cao Kitchen from Dorking, Tweetea from Cranleigh and Chalk Hills Bakery in Reigate.

The free event will give visitors the chance to chat with the suppliers, enjoy tastings of local food and drink, and buy delicious handmade goodies to take home.

There will also be free demonstrations throughout the day including how to identify different coffee varieties with Chimney Fire Coffee, a chocolate making workshop hosted by the Raw Chocolate Company, and a lesson in spices and how to use them from Surrey Spice.

And for food lovers who want to expand their knowledge there will be two masterclasses. Guildford’s Bake with Jack will demystify breadmaking at 11am and then two of Surrey’s finest wine producers, Albury Organic Vineyard and Greyfriars Vineyard, will come together at 12.15pm to host a double-header masterclass.

Also at the food festival will be the Preserves with Passion Awards, which will give home cooks a unique opportunity to have their jam or chutney recipe turned in a limited edition for the Bartie’s Sussex Faire range.

Visitors are being encouraged to bring their home-made jams, jellies and chutneys to the Preserves with Passion area at G Live on the day by 2pm at the latest. Judges, including chair John `Bartie’ Bartlett and Local Food Britain founder Tracy Carroll, will meet after the event and winners will be announced a few days later. Donations from each sale of the winning preserve will go towards the home cook’s charity of choice.

• The Food and Drink Festival takes place on Sunday September 10 from 11am to 4pm. To find out more, and to register for your free entry or to book a masterclass, visit G Live’s website
