As a champion of the Norfolk Food & Drink Festival in 2014 I’ve discovered in talking to those in the Norfolk food industry that Norfolk artisans and producers would not be where they are now without having taken part in the NFDF. They would have got there under their own steam in the end, but their journey might have taken a little longer.

They have been able to attend the wide variation of events held throughout the six weeks, received huge amounts of free advertising and marketing helping to promote their products, and the hype has been amazing leading up to the launch and throughout the six weeks. How everyone loves talking about and eating Norfolk Produce.

So as a Norfolk Chef I would like to thank all those behind the NFDF, to sponsors, event organisers and supporters for their hard work in making it the best, biggest and most amazing Food Festival in Great Britain. It has been a great privilege for me; I have had a wonderful year, made some amazing new friends and rekindled old relationships.
