A few days ago a rather appetising press release pinged into my inbox, as Camp Bestival announced the talented chefs headlining the Feast Collective this year. As a bit of foodie I am always equally concerned about the delicious offerings at a festival as I am the music line up. Previous years at Camp Bestival have left us with taste buds tingling, with the many vendors in the Feast Collective and beyond providing flavours from near and far.
With a strong emphasis on street food style the Feast Collective is a carefully curated collection of flavours, pushing culinary boundaries. So lets see what we can expect this year. A firm favourite in our family, DJ BBQ, will thankfully be returning with his burgers to die for and sounds that make for a summer party. This year also sees the return of Zoe's Ghana Kitchen, offering contemporary twists on traditional Ghanian dishes. Of course sharing a name makes me automatically drawn to Zoe's stall! Also we see the return of Seadog, with their seaside popcorn, Pimp My Ramen offering noodle burger fusions, alongside newbies to the tent, Makatcha, sharing exotic tastes of Indonesian Rendang. With an ever growing trend for healthy foods, there are several options for vegan diets and for those of us aiming to reduce our intake of refined foods, especially sugar. So a visit to The Chocolate Bear Kitchen and The Rattling Pan will be on my agenda and the girls and I are keen to try the 100% natural ice lollies from Polar Pops. And of course Andy and I will be heading to Noble Espresso's for a better caffeine fix than our camping kettle offers!
Have I got your taste buds tingling yet? The Feast Collective is just the beginning. I will write again soon about the other foodie offerings for the weekend.
Until next time, take care.
