Ashford event caterers, Chives Catering, to appear at Hythe Food Festival

Looking to get out and about this Bank Holiday weekend? Perhaps you’re in the mood for some gastronomic delights? If so, the We Love Hythe Life Food Festival will prove the perfect Bank Holiday activity, with more than 70 food, drink, and craft stalls taking to the grounds at Hythe Cricket Club to demonstrate the best of local food.

Of course, we at Chives Catering couldn’t resist being a part of such an exciting weekend of culinary charm, with our very own Graham Green set to host a cookery demonstration during the event. Not only that, he will be cooking with one of the more unusual - yet, increasingly popular - ingredients: kangaroo.

“A huge success”

“I am really looking forward to my demonstration alongside some awesome local chefs such as John Bingley from the Hythe Imperial,” said Graham. “The Food Festival is a great way to meet local producers and suppliers and try new ingredients as well as catching up with fellow chefs.

“We always support local but on this occasion I will be bringing a bit of Australia to the table, demonstrating some kangaroo and of course an opportunity for the audience to try some. It's an ingredient we use a lot - one of our weddings served kangaroo hot pot to their guests last week and it was a huge success and wow factor.”

We Love Hythe Life Food Festival

This year represents the third annual We Love Hythe Life Food Festival, and it promises to be the best yet. In addition to food and drink options, there will also be stallholders showcasing handicrafts and artworks, and there will be the return of last year’s exclusively brewed ale, ‘Festiv-ale’.

For those seeking a bit of entertainment during their Bank Holiday weekend, the festival is also set to feature live music and entertainment from a selection of local performers. From the 60s-influenced rock band, Spinner, to the Kent Military Wives’ Choir, there is almost certain to be something to suit all tastes.

Meet Chives Caterers

We’re delighted to be able to appear at this year’s food festival and cannot wait to showcase Graham’s skills during his demonstrations. Graham will be in attendance on Sunday, August 26 and Monday, August 27, and will be cooking up some kangaroo in his demonstrations at 3pm on both days. Ensure you don’t miss out on your chance to watch - and try - his incredible dishes.
