Taste of Teesdale held in the magnificent grounds of the Raby Castle, promises a great day out for the whole family with lots to see and do, not to mention over 40 stalls offering some of the finest regional food, drink and crafts.
Taste of Teesdale offers something different from traditional food festivals – where else would you find ducks being herded by a sheepdog, or cooking demonstrations designed to get children involved. The entire event is based around the family with something for everyone.
Step aboard ‘Farmyard Flyer’ a specially adapted educational double decker bus with large animals on the lower deck and smaller animals above. Children can interact with friendly, tactile animals creating an enjoyable and unique experience. Durham Wildlife Trust and the RSPB will be in the grounds with lots of information on how to join too!
Food and farming displays will take place throughout the day including a butter making demonstration, honey and bees, hand-made walking sticks and a special display by Bluebell Organics on the importance of growing organically, including Barnard Castle’s ‘Veg-Out’ project. Leaside Cheese will be presenting a special cheese making demonstration, while Kiddy Cook will be getting the children involved in the fun Food Train, collecting local ingredients from stallholders for cooking demonstrations
If hand-pulled traditional beer’s your thing, Darwin Brewery will be in the tent selling cask ales and specialist bottled beers. Local chef, Andrew Rowbotham from The Crown at Mickleton will be giving a master class in butchery, while Love Food will host a food lovers cookery demonstration.
There will be lots of hot food to keep you going from Traditional Hog Roast, Burgers & Bangers from Deer & Dexter, hot kipper buns from Swallow Fish and delicious ready to eat samosas from Asharum, not forgetting Raby Castle’s own relaxing tearooms serving delicious hot and cold food.
We hope you can join us
