Broadstairs - At the end of this month, a three day food festival is being run on the South East Coast of England; the organisers appear to be intent on its becoming a regular feature.
Broadstairs is famous for what? The home of British Prime Minister and yachtsman Edward Heath, and...Actually, this well-known seaside town has quite a reputation as a holiday resort. Its origins can be traced back to the 11th Century, but now some of its leading citizens are intent on turning it into a centre of culinary excellence.
Now in its third year, the Broadstairs Food Festival will run from September 30 till October 2, and is endorsed by celebrity chef Gary Rhodes. Although Gary can’t make it this year, another, slightly lesser known celebrity chef has been retained: Dev Biswal, who runs his own Ambrette restaurant just up the road in Margate.
The Festival also features a three day “food fayre” and cookery demonstrations including such authentic local dishes as Azafran “Authentic Spanish, Latin American and Mexican Food made here in Broadstairs”.
Sponsors include Thanet College, the local media group KOS, and the Waitrose supermarket chain.
