Food Week Website Launched

The Milford on Sea Food Week website has been completely rebuilt and has today been launched.

The website contains lots of information about Food Week, and will show you what a fabulous week we have in store for Foodies from Monday 7th April until Sunday 13th April 2014.

Our twenty village restaurants, pubs and cafĂ©s are offering a wide range of events and dining offers.  Local organisations like the WI, Milford on Sea Club, the Sea Scouts, the Guides, MoS Primary School, MiCO, New Forest Transition, League of Friends, MoS Library, the Village Churches, Total Voice Choir, Milford Makers, Folk Club ...and more, are all involved!

The Food Week Cookery Theatre has a packed programme of demonstrations and shows, with everything from local home cooks sharing their recipes, to Michelin star TV Chefs like Angela Hartnett & Luke Holder, Atul Kochhar and personalities such as Shappi Khorsandi, and Sal Bashir, The world’s only Pakistan Elvis, plus Alex Aitken and top chefs from The Pig, Montagu Arms, Chewton Glen and The Jetty coming to do shows.

Added to this, there is loads for the family and the kids to do, a CakeFest, educational films and talks, wine tastings, beer brewing demonstrations, the Great Dining Bus, cookery classes, the Sunday Food Market, ...and even a walk to try and shed some of the pounds you may have put on!

Chef for a Night Auction: You can bid online to have David Wykes, Chef/Patron of the award winning & Michelin recommended Verveine Fishmarket Restaurant, come to your home and cook three courses for a dinner party of 4. - All menu ingredients and washing up included! In both 2012 & 2011 David was recognised as 'Hampshire Chef of the Year'.
