Attracting tens of thousands of visitors, Foodies Festival is a hugely popular summer festival which thrives on  a rich diet of live music, workshops, master classes and of course top chef talent such as the MasterChef Finalist 2019 Jilly McCord.

And of course, we have a Big Deal on tickets on day tickets and VIP options.  

Among the many attractions, guests can try sweet treats with Bake Off winners and top bakers; sample new wines, Champagnes and cocktails; eat delicious street food from around the world and meet artisan producers.

In the Chef’s Theatre, you can watch top chefs cook their favourite recipes. Pick up tips from chefs such as Great British Menu Winner 2019 - Lorna McNee from Andrew Fairlie’s Restaurant at Gleneagles; The Pompadour’s Daniel Ashmore; Mark Greenaway from Grazing by Mark Greenaway; Ally McGrath from Osso Restaurant; Phil Hickman from Brasserie Prince by Alan Roux;  Neil Forbes from Cafe St Honore; Badger & Co's Emma Clark Szabo  and Barry Bryson at Cater Edinburgh.
