Gainsborough plans landmark ‘Big Food Event’

Gainsborough’s Marshall’s Yard hosts its first Big Food Event on Satrurday 12th July.

Chefs will be showcasing their culinary skills using some delicious regional produce throughout the afternoon. And both the Italian Food Market and the new larger Farmers’ Market will also be held during the day to tempt the taste buds.

The markets will both start at 9am and from 11am there will be live cooking demonstrations with the chance to sample some of the delicious dishes that the event’s chefs will be cooking up in the demo kitchen.

Four local chefs will be stepping into the limelight to demonstrate their skills. The first in the Marshall’s Yard kitchen will be Thyme of Bawtry with the restaurant’s popular pork dish, they’ll be followed by the recently opened NYC Bar and Grill.

Marshall’s Yard’s very own Cream café and coffee bar will be serving up some mouth-watering  home baking and the chef from Gainsborough Golf Club will end the afternoon’s cooking demonstrations with a delicious seafood risotto.

It all takes place right in the heart of the busy shopping centre and as well as a festival of food the organisers are also planning lots of entertainment throughout the afternoon including free face painting, a living statue and an Italian sports car display.

Marshall’s Yard’s Assistant Centre Manager, Alison Hall, says the team at the Yard had decided to make the popular Italian Day an even bigger and better event this year by making it a real celebration of all things
foodie. “We really wanted to take the opportunity to celebrate all things ‘food’ with this event and we’re delighted with the response we’ve had so far.

“We have a packed Farmers’ Market with new traders as well as old favourites coming together for what we hope will be our best market ever. We also have the popular Italian market returning selling cheese, bread, olives, cakes, pizza and pasta.

“The Farmers’ Market will boast an impressive display of locally reared meat with Red Hill Farm, Dexter Beef and Oslinc joining us as well as fruit and veg stalls, fresh fish, handmade bread, honey, ice cream, chocolate, plants and herbs – it’s a great opportunity to come and sample some traditional Italian fayre as well as some great local produce which we’re so lucky to have right here on our doorstep in Lincolnshire.”
