Little Chefs at the Kids Cookery School
Littleborough was buzzing on Saturday (10th June) when Littleborough Food & Drink Festival drew hundreds of people to the centre.
Now in it's third year, this year's festival was the biggest yet. Hare Hill Road and Victoria Street were closed off to allow almost twenty food stalls to serve up delicious wild boar burgers, pasta, meatballs, waffles, curries, mexican dishes and more for people to enjoy..
The food trail was back with over 30 shops playing host to tasters from local food producers and restaurants.
Littleborough Deli's Andy McKay was back to perform some cookery demonstrations with Graham Sherwin and Owen Rhodes from The Green Door who each cooked up a series of delicious dishes on the demonstration kitchen. New for this year, 16 little chefs also got to learn how to make some tasty treats at the cookery school.
The Jaeger Maestros, Rock Choir and Wardle Junior Blast provided music plus there was an energetic Zumba demonstration and free face painting.
Simon France from LittleboroughLocal, said "The rain stayed away and hundreds of families really enjoyed themselves. The kids cookery class was really popular and it was teriffic to see the little ones learning how to cook."
Neela Jackson from The Star Tree Studio said "I'm very proud to have been involved in this fantastic event for Littleborough. What a lovely sight to see so many people enjoying themselves and visiting our independent shops. A great success that showcases what Littleborough has to offer"
