The latest key feature of Thame Food Festival will involve moving of the entire operation of The Milk Shed from Weston on the Green to The Thame Showground. Lucie Greenwood, alongside her husband Mark Ellis, will be hosting and running a unique Festival Pop Up Restaurant in the heart of the event.
The team will be busy cooking up a storm at the pop-up serving some of their renowned old stalwarts such as the deep-filled cheesy tart and amazing spicy chorizo with aioli. Open through-out the event there will also be a few brunch classics, The Milk Shed club sandwich, and the best use of all the new autumn produce available to create an array of fantastic colourful salads.
As Lucie says herself,
“We’re so excited to be re-locating The Milk Shed to Thame for this year’s festival. I’ve been visiting since before I opened the café and think it’s one of the best foodie events in the calendar; it attracts such an inspirational and talented bunch of lovely chefs and producers.”
The café at Weston on the Green will close for the weekend so the whole team will be on site to make sure the pop-up at Thame Food Festival is as brilliant, exciting and fun as possible. But fans of the café won’t miss out, as they can experience everything that The Milk Shed delivers at Thame Food Festival. All the rustic charm; same shabby, cool vibes with long sharing tables but obviously the focus will still be on serving delicious food in a casual setting. Seating will be allocated on a first come first served basis, just the same as the café, so no bookings necessary, just turn up when you fancy – The Milk Shed will be serving the menu all day.
On Saturday evening the space will be turned into the ‘Chefs Banquet’ where The Milk Shed team will be assisting the team from Belazu, Chris Wheeler from Stoke Park, and Ryan and Liam from Orwells Restaurant serve up an amazing four-course feast. This will be a ticketed event in the evening, with more details available soon.
