Four zones. Three days. One epic event.
The Big Feastival is our favourite summer event because they share our passion for enjoying and sharing great food together.
Four exciting NEFF zones are packed with foodie fun for all the family.
Big? It’s going to be massive!
Cookaholics Cookery School
NEFF is partnering with Tante Marie Cookery School to really get your creative juices flowing.
At our Cookaholics Cookery School you can put your culinary skills to the test using our latest FullSteam oven. The menu includes mouthwatering mains and irresistible desserts, so you’ll really get to grips with versatility of Steam cooking.
With five sessions on Friday and six sessions on Saturday/ Sunday, there’s a great chance to get involved. You’ll have to book your spot on the day. Get there early to register.
It’s time to encourage the kids to play with their food! NEFF’s Little Kitchen is the perfect place to introduce little people to the joys of food and cooking.
Selecting fresh ingredients and making child-friendly dishes, they’ll get their hands dirty and really get into the food festival spirit.
And of course, like any kid’s party, there will be plenty of goodie bags for the little ones to take away to remember their day.
So for some big fun, grab the kids and join us at the Little Kitchen.
Brand new for 2017, the NEFF Skillery gives you chance to sharpen up some essential cookery skills.
Get hands on baking delicious bread in the NEFF VarioSteam oven. Learn to handle knives and fillet a fish like a pro. You’ll also discover everything you need to know about the latest NEFF appliances.
So, if you want to learn some new skills that help you get more from your food, get schooled at the Skillery with NEFF.
This is where NEFF really puts food centre stage. At the Big Kitchen, you can watch big name chefs create a whole array of delicious creations.
So far, names on the menu include Rick Stein, Antonio Carluccio, Candice Brown, and of course, Jamie Oliver!
You’ll also see our Next Cookaholic crowned. Nicky Corbishley has done a great job over the last 12 months, but it’s time for her to hand over her wooden spoon. Our two Cookaholic finalists will battle it out to create an incredible dish each.
So for a feast of inspiring food ideas, join us at the Big Kitchen.
