A preview of August

Every month when I write this particular post, I try to give you, the reader a broad brushstroke of what is available in terms of food festivals up & down the UK and Eire. August is the pinnacle of foodie gatherings, so why is it then a self proclaimed chefs website has only listed 8 for August, when here at chefhermes.com, I’ll list & give details of far more than that. Inf act I’ve actually listed 25.

Earlier last month, Fiona from Gemini PR & Marketing got in touch about Nottingham Food & Drink Fortnight (3rd – 17th August). Marco Pierre White has endorsed the event saying:

For those who enjoy dining out, Nottingham’s Food & Drink Fortnight will open the doors to some of the most exciting and highly-regarding eateries in the UK, and it’s the ideal opportunity to try new surroundings, dishes and flavours.

For the restaurateurs, it is a chance to highlight their quality and creativity, encouraging the all-important repeat business. This is a great initiative that truly celebrates the city’s passion for food and drink.

There are many schemes like the Nottingham one up and down the country where people can dine out for a fraction of the normal cost, this year it’s £10; full details on the ItsInNottingham.com website.
