We’ve been busy….

The Exmoor Food Fest preparations are gathering pace.  We have just signed off a campaign on The Breeze starting on 4 January 2016 to shout out about a month long celebration of the best our region has to offer.

Participating restaurants will be offering two courses for £10.00/ three courses for £15.00, and we are finalising exciting events which include gin tasting, oyster and champagne feasts, evenings with local authors, dining experiences in unusual locations and so much more.

The Dunster Food Festival, which is taking over the whole of Dunster at the end of February, is going to be foodie heaven.

Fingers crossed we will be able to give you all the details about the Gourmet Trains which will be run by West Somerset Railway in February – all we can say at the moment is that award winning chefs will be cooking on these trains.

Our website  will be updated regularly – please keep checking it out for the latest information.

The Exmoor Food Fest (or Exmoor4all for that matter) does not receive any official funding. Without the generous help from Arthur David –  Food with Service we would  not be able to run this food festival. 

Thank you all for your ongoing support!

PS You can subscribe to our newsletter here – that way you will not miss out on any updates.

stall for about a year.  We take our influence from the streets and markets of Northern France with our speciality dish being our confit duck burger. We love to bring the best of France and its flavours to a market or event near you.

French K1The French Kitchen was created in 2010 following our success with No 7 Dunster and our work with Land & Sky at the Glastonbury Festival. The French kitchen is a catering organization based in the South West. We are made up of a team of highly skilled, passionate individuals that take great pride in what we do. This means that the highest standards of both food quality and service are met each and every time. Chef and owner Jean-Christophe Le Grand comes from the Seine-Maritime region of Normandy and has worked in the catering industry for the last 10 years. He has brought together his lifelong passion for food and extensive knowledge of the hospitality industry to create a refreshing and vibrant approach to catering. –
