This Friday sees the launch of Emsworth British Food Fortnight 2017 at TASTE! at Tuppenny Barn and we are delighted to be joined Alexia Robinson, founder of Love British Food and British Food Fortnight and Olivier Blanc a Love British Food ‘Ambassador’. Since its foundation in 2014 the Emsworth British Food Fortnight has not only won National Awards but has become one of the most successful Food events of its type in the UK celebrating local food, local people and Emsworth itself. Plans are well advanced for this year’s Fortnight and the launch will unveil some of the key events as well as ticketing details. Showcasing at TASTE! on the evening will be a range of local artisan producers and suppliers who haven taken part in the Emsworth Food Fortnight over the last few years and this is a great opportunity to meet them and hear the stories they have to tell including -


Tuppenny Barn 
Hambledon Vineyard
Stansted Farm Shop  
Harry’s Sausages
Staggeringly Good Beer 
Montezuma’s Chocolate
Fresh from the Boat
Jake’s Artisan Foods
The Cold Pressed Oil Company

Rosemary Moon, local chef and food writer, will be giving a cookery demonstration using ingredients from these producers, in essence producing a dish using local ingredients produced by local people for local people.


Some of the sponsors of this year’s Emsworth British Food Fortnight will also be there on the evening, including Monetzuma’s Chocolate who are once again the headline sponsors. Montezuma’s will be unveiling a fantastic competition, ‘Chocolate Innovators’ which is being launched in as part of this year’s event.


“The Emsworth British Food Fortnight is not just another Food Festival this is a real celebration embracing community and education and celebrating Emsworth and the local region through its people and its food. The launch is an opportunity for people to get involved earlier this year and to meet many of the producers and sponsors involved.  In essence we’re laying the table, and are adding new dishes all the time, all you have to do is pull up a chair and enjoy the feast!” Alistair Gibson, Organising Committee EBFF17
