The five day Leeds Food and Drink Festival runs from 8-12th August and aims to bring together many of the city's most celebrated restaurants, food and drink producers, suppliers and retailers to showcase the range of high quality multi-cultural cuisine available in Leeds.
Presentations, samplings, food and drink matching, music and dancing will bring the global flavours of Leeds vividly to life, with many of the city's award winning restaurants and bars hosting special dinners, fixed priced menus and tastings of local produce during the festival.
Michelin-starred Raymond Blanc, one of the world's top chefs, will be taking part in the festival. He is also stamping his seal of approval on culinary Leeds with the news that he is opening a restaurant in Leeds this summer. Raymond says: "Leeds is celebrated for the richness of its cultural life, the wealth and breadth of its food and restaurant traditions, and the warmth of its hospitality. I am particularly happy to be associated with all these aspects of this great city. I look forward to being part of it". Fly into Leeds with Jet2.com and discover the good life for yourself.
