  • Why Faversham?

    Faversham is in the heart of Kent’s garden of England. The Faversham Food Festival is run annually to celebrate its fine locally produced food and drink. Now in its third year, the Festival provides an opportunity for people to enjoy and celebrate what the East Kent triangle has to offer. Back in 2009  Elizabeth Carter, editor of The Good Food Guide and her contributors identified an area of excellence known as “the East Kent Triangle” – and the local food and drink offer has got significantly better since then. “With Faversham forming one corner, Whitstable and Canterbury the others, it features not just acclaimed restaurants, but fishmongers, cheesemakers and markets to rival those of…

  • Sausage Trail 2016 – winner !

    What a great excuse for strolling around Faversham on (what turned out to be a) SUNday! – tasting, chattering and comparing notes with friends and family as well as with complete strangers – what food and drink is all about – especially these days when so few families dine together ! This year’s Sausage Trail was reduced to 4 entrants at rather late notice (and the tickets were reduced in price to reflect that !) … but nonetheless, we soldiered on with stiff upper lips … except when munching sausages, of course! So local butchers to enter in 2016 were: Baldy Butchers – winners of 2015 “People’s Choice”MBFarms – winners…
