The first Food & Drink Festival organised by the Petuaria Community Forum was declared a success by members and stall holders following a busy day at Elloughton Village Hall. Doors opened at 10am and by midday a steady stream of visitors was perusing the diverse selection of locally-produced food and drink that was available to sample and purchase.
There were a dozen stalls at the event, ranging from freshly-made pizzas through to homemade cakes and jams, locally brewed beer, wine from grapes grown in nearby South Cave, festive hampers and savoury muffins.
Tony Galbraith, Chair of the Petuaria Community Forum was delighted with the turn out. “Our motto is ‘bringing people and Gourmet business together’ and that is just what happened,” he declared. “Four of the twelve exhibitor were from Elloughton- cum-Brough and most were based within five miles of the Village Hall.”
Stallholder Kevin Young of Marvellous Muffins said, “This was our most successful event so far!”
