July Foodie Events

Posted on Monday, 29th June 2009

Here are some upcoming July events that caught my eye and might be of interest.

Like London’s recent Taste of London, there is a similar event to be held in Birmingham. Its the Taste of Birmingham and will run between 9-12 July.

The month of July is cherry season, but did you know that in the last 50 years, Britain has lost 90% of its cherry orchards and now imports around 95% of the cherries sold. So FoodLoversBritain.com has come up with CherryAid, a campaign to support the British cherry. The highlight will be CherryBake, to be held on National Cherry Day which is on 18 July 2009. Foodies can register online and then come along with a baked dish which includes cherries. The dish will be entered into a competition for a chance to win a cherry tree in an orchard in Kent. The venue for CherryBake will be London’s Borough Market. For more details click here.
