Tweed Artisan Food Weekend Program Highlights


The Tweed Artisan Food Weekend is back, bigger than ever from 27 to 30 November 2020, for a flavour-filled long weekend of bespoke food experiences celebrating the incredible people, place and produce of the Tweed.

Over four fabulous days and across a series of stunning locations in the Tweed, you’ll experience some seriously special events, with the region’s chefs and producers serving up some outstanding culinary flavours, local culture and fresh tastes to savour.

Celebrated local chefs, including Pipit's Ben Devlin and Steven Snow of Fins Restaurant, together with well-known chef Christine Manfield, who also calls the Tweed home, will work hand-in-hand with farmers, distillers and growers to create pop-up events that hero the distinctive provenance of the region.

Here are some of the festival highlights to whet your appetite:
