The Chilterns is a living, working area of beautiful countryside whose character has been shaped by agriculture, industry and the people who have lived and worked here over the centuries. Once the larder of London, the historic market towns, tucked-away villages, pubs, farmland, chalk-fed streams and ancient woods all hint at the growing, trading and of course, enjoyment of good local food and drink.
This March, during the new Chilterns Festival of Food & Drink, you are invited to sample some of the delicious local fare that is produced with love, skill and an attention to detail that reflects what is of the Chilterns; quality, distinctiveness and great taste. There is a combination of paid-for and free events, and all bookings need to be made directly with the businesses. Enjoy browsing the festival programme below but don't leave your booking too late as numbers are expected to be high. Please note that the cheese-making event at the Nettlebed Creamery has been sold out.
