Foodies Festival Christmas 2019
Joining some of Scotland’s top chefs demonstrating their culinary skills is this year’s MasterChef winner, Irini Tzortzoglou, as well as finalist Jilly McCord who lives in Edinburgh. There will be wine master classes with tips on the best wines to serve with Christmas lunch. The ever popular Foodies Workshop will be rocking a yuletide vibe with classes on Christmas Canapés, Champagne Tasting, Christmas Cocktail Making, Creating The Perfect Cheeseboard, Chocolate Tasting, Dried Orange Garlands with Fragrant Botanical, Edible Christmas Gifts and Festive Decorations.
Of course all ages enjoy getting involved in preparing a Christmas feast and at the Elf Cookery School children can learn how to make Gingerbread Men, Christmas Cookie Decorating and Snowman Peppermint Creams.
There will be stalls selling food and drink from some of the best producers in Scotland from cheese, ham, smoked salmon and oil to beer, whisky and a ‘gin alley’ giving visitors a chance to meet the makers and learn more about the provenance of their offerings. All of this to the background of local choirs helping visitors get into a Christmas spirit.
