All the attractions

In the Chef’s Theatre, you can watch top chefs cook their favourite recipes. Pick up tips from Mark Greenaway, Graeme Cheevers at Martin Wishart Loch Lomond, Scott Davies from The Three Chimneys, Scott Smith from Norn, Dan Ashmore from The Pompadour, Roy Brett from Ondine and many more.

Now you have the recipes, pick up everything you need to recreate them at home in the Artisan Market. At the market, you can shop and sample from more award-winning producers than ever before. Be sure to leave room for a feast of international flavours and delicacies on the Street Food Avenue plus Champagne, beer and whisky master classes in the Drinks Theatre.

After a day of foodie fun, picnic on the grass with friends and family while enjoying live music on the new MAH music stage from The Hoosiers. Of course, there is always the option of a refreshing cocktail from the Tequila Shack, Tikki Rum Bar and Gin Station. Braver souls can enter the famous Chilli-Eating Competition.

Fantastic day out

This Big Deal scribbler has been to most of the Foodies Festivals in Edinburgh. When the sun is shining, the drinks flowing and the plates are stacked high with fab food, this is one of the best days out in Edinburgh.
