The Craft Guild of Chefs has announced the details of the eighth Universal Cookery and Food Festival (UCFF). The popular annual event will take place on 25th June at Farrington Oils in Northamptonshire.
This year’s Festival will be themed ‘From the Land’ and will focus mainly on sustainability, alongside complementary issues such as Brexit, crowd funding and local heroes. The move to June was made to reflect pre-harvest in line with the chosen venue.
Established in 2012, UCFF was the brainchild of Lee Maycock, Ian Nottage and John Feeney during their time as Craft Guild of Chefs committee members. Designed by chefs, for chefs, each year the festival moves around the UK, taking the event directly to chefs in different locations.
Nottage, who is now UCFF director, said: “We are very excited to be heading to Northampton. Sustainability will be high on the agenda, with industry experts taking to the stage to share their experience and knowledge, particularly in light of the current issues around the use of single-use plastics in the hospitality industry.”
