This celebration of the world of charcuterie brings together a range of artisans, importers and enthusiasts. The best British traditions (some near forgotten) are represented, alongside new continentally styled offerings accompanied by the very finest hams, sausages and terrines from Europe that inspired them. Whilst the pig is undoubtedly the star of the show, beef, lamb, venison, duck and other alternative meats are also on the menu. Browse over three dozen stalls, and buy to take home or feast on the spot.
There is a packed programme of free tastings and workshops in the event tent. Run by different chefs each day, the pop-up restaurant Intent2Eat offers annotated tasting platters showcasing different regional traditions - all accompanied by a well-chosen glass of wine - to enjoy at communal sheltered tables. And don't miss Sunday's 'Dog of the Year' Show, crowning the hottest operators on the street food scene.
