The Tweed Artisan Food Weekend, on from 27–30 November 2020, is a flavour-filled long weekend of bespoke food and drink experiences celebrating the incredible people, place and produce of the Tweed.

In stunning locations across the Tweed, from sunny coast to lush hinterland, the four-day showcase of artisan events will serve up outstanding culinary flavours, local culture and fresh tastes from the region’s chefs and producers.

Celebrated local chefs, including Pipit’s Ben Devlin and Steven Snow, together with well-known chef Christine Manfield, who also now calls the Tweed home, will work hand-in-hand to create pop-up events that will hero the distinctive provenance of the region.

Bespoke events will be held across the region in restaurants, at a coffee plantation, craft brewery and gin distillery, as well as on-site at a host of kitchen gardens.

Cooking classes have been carefully curated to celebrate the Tweed’s natural food bowl.
