The 2022 Exmoor Food Fest has officially ended

Last Saturday, The Farmers Arms in Combe Florey hosted the grand finale of this year’s Exmoor Food Fest: Six chefs prepared six courses which were served with a great wine flight.

Head chef Ben Routley and his team were joined by Chris Chatfield (Complete Events) and Chris Gillard (Dart Fresh). Miguel Tenreiro from the Porlock Weir Hotel prepared the last course, but wasn’t able to attend due to Covid.

Guests were greeted with a drink on arrival sponsored by Exmoor Distillery – the choice was a range of gins, rum or vodka over ice.

And here is the menu:
