4th July 2015 – 5th July 2015
Throughout the weekend of 4 and 5 July graze your way through amazing food and drink produced across the North West and the very best street food from further afield. Taste and enjoy the pick of the crop; from crab cakes to cupcakes, scones to scouse and hot chillies to hot dogs – absolutely no-one goes hungry!
‘Eat the Atlantic’ Food Festival on Liverpool’s Mann Island will fill the sea air with scrumptious aromas and invites friends and families to discover nature’s larder from both sides of the pond, and from the ocean too.
The first transatlantic crossings were not made by towering ships, but by humble Atlantic Salmon in their search for food and shelter. For millennia, the Atlantic Salmon has swum thousands of miles, back and forth between the UK and North America to feed and to spawn. Find out about the miracle of nature that’s allowed them to survive the epic journey, celebrate the fascinating story of Mersey salmon and best of all – sample some great salmon dishes cooked by talented local chefs.
If it’s something sweet you’re after, join in and help create a giant edible map of our magnificent city made entirely from cake! Baking enthusiasts and beginners alike can sign up to recreate their favourite Liverpool or New York landmark in sponge and icing to place on the map. Or why not come along and make edible items for the map – fondant ferry anyone?
‘Eat the Atlantic’ has fabulous fishy fun for all with food tastings and cookery demonstrations for the grownups, fishy tales storytelling and food art workshops for the kids. All weekend we’ll keep you smiling – it’s free to attend and enjoy thigh slapping music and side-splitting street entertainment. You’ll never be far from something delicious to eat, as throughout the day our fleet of street food vendors in vintage vehicles serve up awesome international dishes, keeping you grooving into the night.
