Foodies Festival Christmas returns to Edinburgh’s EICC 24, 25, 26 November

Foodies Festival Christmas, Edinburgh’s favourite food festival, kicks off the festive season at the EICC on 24, 25 & 26 November

Foodies Festival is bringing the Christmas spirit back to the EICC on the 24, 25 and 26 November. Take home recipes and top tips from MasterChef winners, Great British Menu stars and top Scottish chefs who will be cooking up their festive favourites in the Chef’s Theatre or Great British Bake Off winners and top patisserie chefs who will be baking up show-stopping cakes and treats in the Cakes and Desserts Theatre.

Learn all the skills to become the ultimate host this Christmas at the 12 Top Tip festive masterclasses, get merry with Craft Beer, Wine and Champagne masterclasses in the Drinks Theatre, discover your new favourite tipple at Gin Alley and browse for Christmas gifts in the artisan market. Bring the kids along to the Elf’s Cookery School, taste flavours of the world at Street Food Avenue, indulge in award-winning treats at Pudding Hall, or enjoy Christmas carols and music from Scotland’s most exciting unsigned bands on the Live Music Stage. With a luxury VIP area, a vintage tea room and a Champagne Ski Bar, Foodies Festival is the only place to kick off the festive season.
