Raising a toast to local food

A packed feast of events celebrating local food starts today with the launch of the Leicester & Leicestershire Food Fortnight (LLFF). From vineyard tours to specialist cookery schools, gourmet evenings to tasting sessions the fortnight has something for everyone and this year the event organisers are hoping to set new records for the number of people involved.
LLFF runs from Saturday 18th September and culminates with the East Midlands Food Festival at Brooksby Hall, near Melton Mowbray on Saturday and Sunday the 2nd and 3rd October.
LLFF is being delivered by the Leicestershire Rural Partnership, Leicestershire County Council, Leicestershire Food Links with the support of Leicester City Council, Leicester Market and Melton Mowbray Food Partnership.
