“Our food and art master-classes on Friday and Saturday have proven extremely popular and our Sunday Festival has this year attracted more food and wine exhibitors than previous years,” said Wendy Allen, Hampton Festival Event Organiser.
With over 70 food and wine exhibitors, guests nibbled and
River Cottage Australia‘s Paul West led cooking demonstrations, along with beer guru Matt Kirkegaard, better known as BeerMatt, and organic farmer Justin Russell from Half Moon Farm. Visitors were taught everything from cheese making to beer brewing to pairing beer with breakfast.
To ensure fun was had for the whole family, Kids in the Kitchen allowed younger attendees to don their own chefs’ hats and whip up tasty, nutritious meals.
To accompany the sizzling food stalls and enticing autumn weather was live music from local performers including The O’Brien Quartet, Dana Hassall, and Hayley Chalmers.
