Chorley’s popular food and drink event, A Taste of Chorley, is returning to Chorley next week and members of the public are being encouraged to visit the variety of tasty stalls on offer.
Chorley Council is putting on the event on Saturday 9 June which will showcase Chorley’s local food and drink culture, give cooking tips and provide healthy eating advice.
The event, which is now in its second year, will see market traders and local businesses set up on Fazakerley Street between 11am-4am with a variety of food and drink available.
Councillor Alistair Bradley, Leader of Chorley Council said: “A Taste of Chorley first came to our town centre last year and it was a huge success so we’ve brought it back this year to celebrate our local food culture.
“The event will bring members of the public together to enjoy the variety of food and drink on offer, which will all be locally produced.
“Plus, there will be cooking demonstrations and healthy eating advice and even some live music to help people enjoy the day.
“We can’t wait to see people come to the event and enjoy all of the tasty food and drink that will be available.”
The event is free to attend and people can get some top tips from local chefs giving cooking demonstrations, whilst they enjoy some delicious food and live music. Plus there will be a wide range of local artisan producers selling mouth-watering produce for you to take home and create your own delicious dishes.
The traders and businesses will also be taking part in a hot pot trail which the public can judge on.
Members of the public can also get involved by entering the Chorley Cake competition and baking Chorley’s favourite cake. There are three categories to enter for the competition which are; professional bakers, 16 or over adult bakers and under 16 junior bakers.
