Foodies Festival Christmas This November!


Following up on last year’s success, Foodies Festival Christmas returns to London’s Old Truman Brewery on the 18th, 19th and 20th of November.


This festive season the Chefs Theatre boasts a stellar line up, including MasterChef 2016 Winner Jane Devonshire, who’ll be cooking up her favourite family Christmas recipes for the first time. Joining her on stage are fellow MasterChef 2016 finalists Jack, Billy and Juanita with a whole host of seasonal treats and eats to help you on your way to the tastiest festive season yet.

In the Cake & Bake Theatre, Burlesque Baker Charlotte White will create a modern showstopper of a Contemporary Christmas Cake in just 30 minutes (with not a plastic Santa in sight!), while master chocolatier Fiona Sciolti showcases a new selection of chocolate desserts and treats, as well as introducing her newest seasonal delights including Churros with delicious festive toppings.
