Bowhouse Christmas Food Weekend at Balcaskie Estate
December 9, 2017 @ 10:00 am - December 10, 2017 @ 4:00 pmFree
Come and say hello to Scotland The Bread at our stall at this Christmas food weekend at Bowhouse on Balcaskie Estate, and stock up on our newly launched Scottish-grown heritage flours for all your Christmas baking.
Free to attend, the unique indoor event provides an opportunity to see, discuss, taste and buy the best local food and drink made in Fife and beyond. Held across two days, we will join more than 55 stalls ranging from venison and veal, to seaweed and artisan chocolate. Fife’s best beer, whisky and gin will sit alongside coffee roasters and specialist bakers.
As well as this line up of some of Scotland’s very best food and drink producers in the covered market area, there will also be live music, a dedicated street food area, food and craft demonstrations and children’s activities.
Those looking for Christmas presents will enjoy the carefully curated craft stalls as well as the opportunity to select festive wreaths and flowers. While browsing the stalls, visitors will be able to enjoy mulled wine and carol singing. Scotland’s Women’s Institute (SWI) will contribute with spiced drinks, tea and festive treats, as well as sharing some of their craft and cookery tips in the theatre area.
The theatre area will be led by Fife-based college, SRUC Elmwood, where chefs and food producers will take part in cooking demonstrations and talks on both the Saturday and the Sunday, revealing their favourite produce, insider tips and sharing their passion for food and drink. Those taking part include chefs like Geoffrey Smeddle from the Michelin-starred Peat Inn, alongside local artisan producers and even those with ideas for Christmas flowers and wreaths.
Children will have the opportunity to come face to face with livestock from Balcaskie Estate. Christmas crafts and the chance to get hands on creating festive food will also keep families busy.
