From field to fork

Enjoy England's love-affair with food

England’s love affair with food doesn't stop with its regional specialties or array of restaurants offering unique dinning experiences; our passion for cooking using fresh local produce and grow your own ingredients to give our meals that extra oomph is what has turned us into a nation of foodies. Browse through our numerous food festivals showcasing the very best of England’s local produce from just caught seafood to freshly baked breads; enjoy out of the ordinary food experiences such as foraging for mouth-watering mushrooms within scenic surroundings of the New Forest, and venture on food safaris to learn how to turn weekly suppers into forkfuls of pleasure.
