2. THE FEASTING

A huge thank you to chefs Mike Keen, Olia Hercules, Anja Dunk, Jen Goss, Andre and Anderson Queiroz, Damian Clisby and the multitude of other chefs who pitched in to feed 300 festival goers in a series of fantastic sit-down Feasts. There will be more feast next year, stay tuned for details!

3. SUPER CHEFS TO THE RESCUE!

When one of our chefs was unable to make their Campfire Cooking Session at the last minute, the crowd were treated to something really special; Tom Herbert, Thomasina Miers, Harry Eastwood, Felicity Cloake, Lord Logs, Matthew Pennington of The Ethicurean and festival co-founders Charlie and Caroline Gladstone stepped into the breach. Can we get the Super Chefs back next year?
