The Happy Foodie Festival 2013

11 Sep 2013

Come and talk with us about foodie holidays at the Happy Foodie Festival on Saturday 28th September. The festival is being organised by The Random House Group Ltd and our friends Morag and Sheryl at Chorleywood Bookshop and is being held the Royal Masonic School for Girls in Rickmansworth.

The Happy Foodie Festival celebrates the very best in cookery writing, with a stellar line up of the UK’s finest chefs, cookery writers and local food suppliers. Last year’s inaugural festival was a great success, with hundreds of people coming to watch cooking demonstrations and talks from Random House authors including Yotam Ottolenghi, Richard Bertinet and The Great British Bake Off star and all-round baking national treasure, Mary Berry.

This year’s festival will feature a host of television stars and Michelin-starred chefs, from Dragon’s Den success story Levi Roots and MasterChef 2012 winner Shelina Permalloo to Michelin-star chef Michael Caines,. There will be local food stalls, tasting opportunities, demonstrations and ethical debates from some of the UK’s most popular chefs, the day will include something for everyone. And we’ll be there too, showcasing fantastic gourmet-oriented breaks and hotels with great reputations for excellent cuisine.

For more information about the Happy Foodie Festival and for details on this year’s line-up of writers click here.

Single event tickets are £10. Full day tickets are £25. Day tickets also entitle you to 50% off the price of any book by an author appearing during the festival. Tickets can be purchased in-store at Chorleywood Bookshop or over the phone (01923 283 566).

We had a fantastic time in Sicily. Thank you for your suggestion - so much more than we expected, lots of interesting places to visit and the hotels were excellent.

AJ

We felt as though we were away for ever and had not 1 but 3 holidays!

The Kingston family

The list of superlatives about the holiday is endless...You can be assured that we will be in contact with Ultimate Destinations in the near future to discuss our next “tailor made” requirements.

Tony and Barbara

We had a terrific time. Everything worked like clockwork; your organisation was wonderful.
Thank you for everything you did to make this holiday trouble free. We'll be back to see you for our next holiday!

T.K.

Debbie - thanks for arranging our return boarding passes. Great service.

A.T.

Our holiday in the USA was "awesome" as they say. All the hotels you provided were excellent. Thank you for helping us make it such a great experience...and for the fantastic memories.

Mr and Mrs H

We were planning a special trip to the Maldives and we chose Diamonds Thudufushi in the South Ari Atoll. Andy helped make all the arrangements including sourcing seats on direct BA flights at a competitive price. The holiday was wonderful and very relaxing. Would definitely recommend this beautiful island.

Liz Patel

Thank you for booking such a great holiday - we had the best time we didn't want to come home! Orlando was absolutely fantastic, we loved it there - and we really liked Tampa too shopping there was great!! Was honestly the best holiday we've had! I'll have to start thinking soon where's next!

Sophie

Thank you for organising our ANZCRO trip, it was fantastic. All the connections and hotels were spot on. Will recommend you to anyone thinking of doing any long haul trips.

Fran

Thank you for organising our trip to the States. We had a fantastic time everywhere we went. Hotels were well chosen and were very clean and comfortable with just the right amount of luxury for two night stays. Transport links all worked smoothly and having Cape Cod as our final stay was perfect with wonderful accommodation and beautiful beaches. Many thanks for your guidance!

Bridgit

We had the most fabulous time imaginable on our trip to India and would certainly go back.... we were lucky to come to you to arrange this trip.

The Jopling Family

I just wanted to thank you for your excellent service arranging our recent trip to Cyprus, no problems with the car park or flight. Also thanks for your prompt assistance with our queries while we were there. If you keep 'holding our hands' like this you'll never get rid of us!

Sue

Thanks for your advice on the Ghazala Gardens in Sharm El Sheik which proved to be a great place to stay and in a prime location. We had a really fantastic time and everything ran very smoothly, flights on time, transfers great, hotel very good.

The Deakin Family

I cannot recommend Buffalo Tours highly enough. Many thanks, Andy, as ever, for organising our trip to Vietnam and Cambodia. It was certainly an adventure and a half!

Ralph and Alison

Thank you for arranging our trip to Athens. Hotel Hemes in Athens was a short walk away from everything we needed.

Carole

We had a great time in Kefalonia. The whole trip was very smooth and well organised by Ionian, and we would definitely use them again if going to that part of the world. We were also lucky with the weather, and even the hire car, as it appeared most of those who booked ahead of us had taken all the small cars leaving us with something slightly roomier and more powerful.

Phil

Living in Chorleywood, it gave us peace of mind to be able to speak directly to someone knowledgeable and book with a local Agent.
