A September Sunday filled with sunshine brought even more visitors to the waterfront for the second day
of the Royal Albert Dock Food Festival- FEAST.
Following a day filled with masterclass sessions from all our favourite Albert Dock restaurants and bars, the floating pontoon underwent another transformation – this time it was for the kids. Sponsored by Belling, Kiddy Cook hosted a number of free, drop in cookery sessions for youngsters which saw the mini masterchefs create their own stir fry noodles, edible slime, soups and more.
Elsewhere on the dock, the sun shone down on 40 different stalls offering a wide variety of dishes. One of the most popular was the traditional paella – cooked from scratch on the dockside by Lunyalita. Serving up 80 portions per pan, visitors were kept in suspense for 90 minutes as the delicious smells drifted across the dock.
Sunshine and cocktails are a match made in heaven and there was plenty of both. Revolution De Cuba and The Smugglers Cove served up a whole host of rum concoctions while Ruebens went crazy with the pancake toppings and Peaberry Coffee House served up seriously loaded dirty dogs.
The Nest was also a hive of activity as local artist Harry Mytton created a new artwork from all your suggested Scouse words while the youngsters got their faces painted and had a go at screen printing. Mermaid Courtyard also hosted two tents filled with free arts crafts and storytelling activities.
The Albert Dock Food Festival – FEAST has proved to be a hugely popular event with visitors coming from far and wide to enjoy the very best of what the dock has to offer. Boutique shopping, world class food and drink, engaging, interesting leisure activities and a knock out view that never gets old.
