Food Lovers’ Festival Guide 2010 (Pt 2)

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.
