Masterchef Judge William Sitwell opens 2023 Exmoor Food Fest

A celebratory dinner launches the 8th Exmoor Food Fest!

Chefs from across Exmoor are joining the team at the Farmers Arms in Combe Florey on 25 January 2023 to launch this year’s Exmoor Food Fest.

The Exmoor Food Fest, which was launched in 2015, runs throughout February across the region: Participating restaurants will be offering special deals and host events to show-off the amazing hospitality and food Exmoor has to offer.

The launch dinner, hosted by the Farmers Arms in Combe Florey, sees four chefs from across Exmoor join their team for the night. The line-up promises an exciting menu – this year our chefs have up with their own twist on Burns Night which traditionally happens on 25 January. We can promise you that this menu is unlike any Burns Night you’ve been to!

Jade Shorney (Private Chef) – Canapés with a Scottish Twist

Anita-Clare Field (La Petite Bouchée, Witheridge) – Starter: Cock a Leekie

Gavin Athanasiou (La Chasse) – Josper roasted Scallop with Scottish Seaweed Butter

Joseph Roach & Sophie Rogers (Farmers Arms) – Local seared venison with seasonal additions

Tim Zekki (Duende, Wiveliscombe) – Desert: Tim’s Cranachan

We are delighted that  Masterchef judge William Sitwell will join us at the launch to welcome guests and chefs.

‘I’m a food writer, a restaurant critic for The Telegraph, a broadcaster and a critic on MasterChef, a travel writer, an author, supper club host and founder of the world’s smallest wine store: William’s House Wines.’

This is how William describes himself and we’re sure he’s going to get all guests at the launch into the right mood for a month-long celebration of the best hospitality Exmoor has to offer.

There are only a couple of tickets left (£65.00, including a welcome drink by Exmoor Distillery).
Call the Farmers Arms to book now on 01823 432267.
