At the end of this month, the New Forest will hold it’s very first Autumn Food and Drink Festival.
The National Park is a foodie paradise with world class hotels sitting alongside quaint country inns. Until now it’s been one of the UK’s best-kept foodie secrets. But that’s about to change…
There is not much that I love more than combining Travel and Food. And having spent a long weekend in the New Forest very recently, I cannot imagine a better place to celebrate Britain’s best local food and drink. In fact, it wouldn’t be difficult to spend an entire week here, exploring the New Forests eateries and meeting the areas local honey, cheese, meat, cider, wine, bread, chocolate and ice cream producers.
Well in less than two weeks’ time, food lovers all around the UK will get the opportunity to do just that. From 31 October until 6 November, Hampshire’s top chefs, restaurateurs and artisan food and drink producers will be uniting their talents for a programme of mouth-watering gastronomic events set against the backdrop of the stunning New Forest National Park.
