From Saturday 8th April 2017 09:00 to Saturday 8th April 2017 18:00
Slow Food Anglia are very pleased to be holding their first Sagra at the historic Holkham Hall Estate, home of the Coke family and the Earls of Leicester located on the beautiful North Norfolk coast. We will be holding the Sagra at Holkham Hall along with the well known Norfolk based Bullitt Dining who are our partners for this prestigious and exciting event on Saturday 8th April 2017 in the newly refurbished Lady Elizabeth Wing on the estate.
A Sagra is an Italian festival, normally dedicated to a specific local food, often specific to that village, town or particular area of an Italian region, and it normally will be a celebration of a specific food such as olive oil, meat, fish, pasta and other local produce.
During the Saturday there will be twenty four local East Anglian food producers present inside the venue with another four local street food vendors from Norfolk and Suffolk located outside in the courtyard.
As part of the larger international Slow Food movement Slow Food Anglia supports the enjoyment and protection of locally produced foods, regional cooking and the local environment in East Anglia, as well as promoting excellent local artisan food producers across the region.
One of the aims of the Sagra is to promote and support less well known producers, meats, cheeses, bread, vegetables and other excellent produce of the region, and we will also be showcase rare native oysters from Colchester for which Slow Food Anglia has just obtained Presidia status, this being only the fourth Presidia to be granted in the UK.
Our last dedicated food festival last August in Norwich proved extremely popular and we believe that by holding our next festival at Holkham Hall estate we will help make Slow Food Anglia, our work and ethos increasingly well known in not just Norfolk but across the east of England.
Entrance to the day event is free. A £3 charge for car parking at Holkham applies
