Taste Edinburgh Festival – The Launch

The Launch of the Taste Edinburgh Festival April 2012

In Edinburgh, we are fortunate to not only be blessed with some of the most food obsessed people in the country, but also to be the home of so many food focused events. (Total Food Geeks Edinburgh)

Yesterday I was faced with the reality of press photography. With the recent March heat wave¬† breaking all records who wouldn’t think that setting up five deck chairs in The Meadows for a photo shoot was not a great idea. Scottish weather being its usual unpredictable self sent rain and wind. With snow on the way, I think we came out of it really well.

These five chefs certainly make you feel like the sun is out with fruit, vegetables and fizz to play with, Mary Contini (VinCaff√©), Paul Whitecross (Angels with Bagpipes), Tony Sarton (Tigerlily), Mark Greenaway (Restaurant Mark Greenaway) and Simon Lannon (Hadrian’s Brasserie at The Balmoral) were thrilled to be involved in the Launch of the Taste of Edinburgh Festival 2012 as was I. And even on a slighty drizzly Edinburgh day, the chefs’ excitement at their Scottish Picnic was clear.

This July, The Meadows will house one of the larger food events to favour Edinburgh: the sixth Taste of Edinburgh Festival. From 6th – 8th July there will be live cooking demonstrations, food and drink from over 100 artisan producers and a chance to try your hand with AEG Perfekt Cooking Classes

Over the three days of the festival it is anticipated that over 30,000 foodies will descend. The best of Scottish food will be show cased by a lineup of 16 award winning restaurants, with a Taste Theatre, stalls and even a VIP lounge. And, for the first time ever, kids under the age of 12 will be able to attend for free.
