Kicking off on Saturday, May 4th, the festival will feature a non-alcoholic cocktail masterclass showcasing live cocktail demos with high quality non-alcoholic drinks created by Ross Kelly, @the.sober.mixologist. This fabulous event will take place in the spectacular surrounds of Mountain View, a private venue that hosts one of the best known and most popular food markets in the country.

Given the growing trend of embracing alcohol-free lifestyles, particularly in family-friendly settings, is so thrilled to support Foodie Fest by supplying a delicious range of non-alcoholic gins, prosecco, and sparkling wines to support. These will be featured in the non-alcoholic Zero Bar at the Cowshed where you can go and learn more about non-alcoholic mixology and sample some delicious non-alcoholic drinks!

On Saturday evening, guests will have the opportunity to enjoy a 4-course menu prepared by three Michelin-experienced MasterChefs and overseen by Mountain View's Executive Chef. This exclusive dining experience will start with a drinks reception, followed by dinner and live music, as well as after-dinner chats with the MasterChefs – an evening not to be missed.

The festival continues on Sunday, May 5th, with a series of masterclasses hosted by seven contestants from the hit BBC show MasterChef. These talented chefs will share their expertise in a variety of culinary styles, from Italian-inspired cooking to family-friendly meals and the art of summer BBQing.
