Guernsey Food Festival launches in September

Date Posted: 23/03/2015

The Channel Island will showcase its cuisine, local produce and skilled chefs in a ten-day food festival from 18th to 27th September.

A first for the island, the Guernsey International Food Festival will be based in Guernsey's capital, St. Peter Port, with events ranging from cook offs to live cooking demonstrations and gastronomic island tours. 

The Guernsey cuisine has developed from its geographical position allowing it to fuse English and French gastronomy whilst harnessing fresh produce from the land and sea.

Guernsey also makes much of its own produce with its protected Guernsey cow, as well as beer and fruit liqueurs which will all be showcased at the festival.

Highlights over the ten days will include a Guernsey Gourmet Bus Tour, visiting key producers for behind-the-scene tours and tastings, plus a gourmet lunch.
