The event on 12 September at Painshill Park in Cobham, Surrey, is designed for farmers, growers and suppliers as well as chefs and restaurateurs and is designed to focus on seasonal produce and using wild food. 

A merger between the Food Development Association (FDA) with the Craft Guild of Chefs in 2009 has driven the desire for an event along the lines of the festival which will include foraging tours, networking opportunities and workshops in skills deer and game butchery.

A vineyard visit, fishing trip and a talk from local apiarists on bees and honey will also feature on the line-up while science and the future of kitchens will also be explored.
