This post was written in 2010 and reflects the festival at that date.
Ever with food on my mind, I started thinking about foody things to see and do at the Edinburgh festivals and I am pleased to provide tasty offerings that might tempt your palate. I am going to have to be very brave to dine at 100 feet up though ..
If you know of any must see foody shows, events, happenings, let me know! @edinburghfoody. Do read Part 1, in which I suggest great places to eating during the festival.
Astonishingly, there are still tickets available for Anthony Bourdain – 28th August (remember Kitchen Confidential), Prue Leith 24th August and Mary Contini – 15th August.
Dare you dine 100 feet up? Join 21 other people and menus that have been created to suit the Festival in the Sky experience by the Cook School Scotland prices from £32.50 per person depending on meal you choose.
Scant details as yet, but this takes place on 13th and 14th August in Inverleith Park. Cookery demonstrations and tastings are promised. Tickets £10
Taste Whisky and Taste Ale at Leslie’s Bar
28 Queen’s Street and The Vaults, Leith. Usually for members only, discover the delights of single cask whisky. £17, 6 dates only at each venue.
Edinburgh Wine School on the Royal Mile for beginners and those more experienced.
Wine tasting on a barge at Edinburgh Quay, Fountainbridge.
Each year Mr EF and choose a random show to go to, so I’m including some shows chosen purely and simply on their write up in the Fringe programme – could be interesting!
