The Isle of Man Food & Drink festival will be held at the Villa Marina Gardens on 17 – 18 September 2016. The festival offers visitors the chance to sample the very best of local produce and experience live cookery demonstrations.
You’ll be able to watch local food producers at work and try everything from creamy Manx cheeses, fresh seafood, hand crafted confectionary, Manx meat and even locally brewed Manx alcohol.
Each year the Festival welcomes a famous visitor with a passion for cooking to the Manx Food Theatre, providing cookery demonstrations using local Manx produce on both days.
Among the celebrity chefs who have attended previous festivals are Gino D’Acampo, the Hairy Bikers, James Martin, Ainsley Harriott and the Fabulous Baker Brothers.
