My blog is a dead giveaway that my love of music is matched by a love of food, and Camp Bestival not only satisfy my music festival urges, they also cater fabulously for my love of good food. We are all vegetarians, bar the teen, and have always found it easy to find good, reasonably priced (for a festival) veggie food at Camp B – in fact the best veggie burger I have had in years was from a stall there. It is not an exaggeration to say that you can travel to all corners of the culinary world when eating out at Camp Bestival – but the jewel in the edible crown is The Feast Collective.
Feast Collective Producer Gemma Thorogood says: “This year we’ve trawled the country for the cream of the crop with British Street Food celebs Seadog bringing their seaside popcorn to the fields, plus Bánh Mì from Pho Sho, buttermilk chicken from Butchies, and sweet potato pancakes from the Chocolate Bear Kitchen. Not to mention the extraordinary Eritrean tacos carefully crafted by Lemlem Kitchen, oh and Polar Pops ice lollies made only from real fruit and vegetables (with NO added sugar)! I just hope I can get around it all in one weekend!”
This year’s Feast Collective Ambassadors will include Steven Lamb from the River Cottage; Children’s Food Ambassador, and former BBC Cook of the Year, Jo Ingleby, who will be offering Children’s Feast Collective Tasting Sessions; Luke Thomas, the UK’s youngest head chef, and Healthy Food Ambassador, Tess Ward, author of The Naked Diet.
The line-up for the Feast Collective this year will include Seadog, the winners of the ‘Best of the Best’ prize at the 2015 British Street Food Awards, plus a modern twist on traditional Ghanaian cooking from Zoe’s Ghana Kitchen, noodle burger fusionists Pimp My Ramen, and so much more.
And that is just some of the taste adventures on offer – for a full list check out the Camp Bestival website. My youngest is looking forward to trying the 100% natural ice lollies from Polar Pops and the treats from The Chocolate Bear Kitchen. I am lusting after the beautiful looking south asian street food from Makatcha.
