Food festival praised by top chef

Food festival praised by top chef

Food festivals are one of the most exciting things you can do with your weekend - particularly if you are interested in getting some new ideas and new culinary spices.

What's more, food events are no longer just about eating. People are encouraged to learn and hands-on demonstrations are commonplace.

Which is why it is hardly surprising that Edinburgh's latest food festival has been hailed as "massively important" by one of the city's top chefs.

Tony Borthwick, who is top chef at the esteemed restaurant Plumed House, told STV Local that Feast 2012, which is organised by Queen Margaret University and Jewel and Esk College, was a great thing for students in the city.

"My own college experience was a nightmare. I didn't start cooking until I was 28 and at college I felt I often knew more about it than my lecturer so decided I was wasting my time," Mr Borthwick told the news provider.

He added that encouraging students to help organise a major culinary event provides them with plenty of experience and gives them a greater amount of focus.

New food festivals are cropping up all the time, with the Craft Guild of Chefs launching its first ever Universal Cookery and Food Festival this year.
