England’s Seafood FEAST will return to the English Riviera in beautiful south Devon this autumn, from 29 September to 15 October.
The two-week celebration of world-renowned seafood will see the towns of Brixham, Paignton and Torquay join forces to host a seafood feast like no other, giving visitors the chance to join the locals and experience some of the best seafood in the world, right where it’s landed.
Highlights include everything from fine dining to street food, seafood celebration suppers to guest chef events. Taking place on England’s Seafood Coast, the 2023 FEAST is shaping up to be bigger and better than ever before.
Expect a packed two-week-long programme. Visitors will be able to take their pick from seafood set menus and platters, tasting menus, crab-cracking masterclasses and guest chef events, and that’s just for starters.
Meet the Faces of the Feast and hear about their stories at sea, discover new fish species, be inspired by local talent and coastal artists, and give back to the ocean.
Celebrate at events such as Mussels and Music, Seafood and Sax, and SUP and Seafood at Sunrise.
A highlight of the FEAST, the 7 Chefs events will take place in Torquay on Saturday 30th September and Brixham on Saturday 7th October, 10am – 5pm. Guests are invited to enjoy 7 courses over 7 hours in 7 restaurants, with the ‘Trust the Chef’ menu announced on the day. A truly ‘sea to plate’ experience, each dish will feature locally landed and caught fish and seafood paired with local artisan award-winning drinks.
Tickets for 7 Chefs cost £130 per person and are available to buy from the English Riviera Visitor Information Centre (01803 211211).
There is plenty more to enjoy. Listen to the sounds of the sea by local sea shanty singers, take a trip out to sea and feast on fish and chips, go fishing and learn how to cook the day’s catch, join a seashore foraging workshop or go wild sea swimming with local experts.
The full programme can be found on www.theseafoodfeast.co.uk Events are being added regularly, so keep checking back for more information and book direct with the local businesses taking part.
