Food Rocks 2019, Lyme Regis, Dorset
September 6, 2019 - September 7, 2019
The Dorset town of Lyme Regis, immortalised in John Fowles’ novel The French Lieutenant’s Woman, will once more be the setting for the seventh Food Rocks this September.
Spread over two days, the food fest curated by famed restaurateur-cum-chef, Mark Hix, who hails from the town, unites the best of the worlds of food and drink, with local producers mingling with top chefs.
This year, Hix will be joined in Lyme Regis by other leading chefs, Angela Hartnett, Mitch Tonks and Richard Bertinet. There will be a series of talks and demos at the main tent from 11:30am to 5:30pm, with guests able to sample many of the dishes using seafood caught by local fishermen for a donation to charity.
Confirmed events include cookery demos by Steven Lamb of River Cottage, music from local charity B Sharp, and the Mr Bakers Dozen’s Morris dancing.
With more than 50 food and drink stalls, you can sample Somerset Membrillo, Black Cow vodka and Conker gin beside Billy Winters Café and Sally’s Fish Camp, or try a Somerset Hog roast.
Food Rocks raises money for the RNLI and Fisherman’s Mission.
The Glenarm Estate Meat Feast will start the festival on 6 September. Situated in the main tent, the event will be hosted by Mark Hix and Peter Hannan, his beef supplier.
On 7 September, the Crab and Mackerel Supper Club will be a sell-out, so book early. Party into the night at SWIM with cocktails and DJs.
