The Eat Cambridge Festival was started by Caroline Biggs, Sian Townsend, and Heidi White, three enthusiastic women who love local food and producers. Their goal is to showcase local, independently owned restaurants in Cambridge, giving the city a chance to discover and rediscover hidden gems of the city.
The two-week festival is hosted in the spring, usually near the city centre. Dozens of local restaurants, bakeries, breweries, and sweet shops attended last year’s festival, offering tastings and deals. Local chefs even turned up, giving cooking lessons and talks.
While the main event is held in May, Eat Cambridge also schedules a number of fringe events that include cooking lessons and talks from local chefs, to mini tasting events, educational panels, food debates, and even a cooking competition between local eateries.
Don’t miss out on one of Cambridge’s most exciting and delicious festivals!
