On-Line Festival Tasters; FoodFest Dish Food Plus

Thursday 18 June 2020 - Sunday 28 June 2020

Local eateries shared the menus they had available for takeout and delivery, to mark our annual Food Fest.

The FoodFest is the opening event of the Festival each year and offers a selection of culinary treats from local restaurants, bars and food outlets in Lymm.  The much-loved celebration will return in future years.

We wanted to try and showcase ‘What might have been’ at our annual Foodfest event and try to give a flavour of what’s available from our local traders from their takeaway and click and collect menus. We would like thank everyone for taking the time and effort during this difficult and challenging time to film and submit a video highlighting the preparation and cooking of a selection of dishes which are available to order.

The Sticky Chilli Chicken from Eighteen the Cross looks great and the Elmas ‘Lymm Festival’ offer of a Mediterranean Sharing Box for 2 people including wine for £29.50 is very tempting. So check out Facebook@Lymm Festival, twitter and YouTube and celebrate ‘Foodfest’ at home

In the interim, 5 Food Fest favourites are here to share their exciting takeaway menus.
Lymm Festival encourages you to make use of these takeaway options to support local businesses.

Please note: restaurant opening hours are changing frequently as a result of changes in lockdown restrictions.  If in doubt, please contact the restaurant directly to check their up-to-date opening hours.

Elmas Lymm:
Elmas is joining the #lymmfest20 celebrations with a special discount.  They are offering a Mediterranean sharing box for two, plus a bottle of vino, for only £29.50!

Elmas are inspired by the Mediterranean food, people, friendliness and culture.  The restaurant was born of a desire to bring this experience to the North West of England.  They say:

‘In the Mediterranean, food takes on a new meaning as your favourite memories become dining with friends on mild summer evenings.  Ingredients should be fresh and of the highest quality, even if this means waiting for some of them to be in season.  Even better, just as the people of the Mediterranean enjoy some of the most flavourful food in the world, their cuisine is also among the healthiest thanks to replacing saturated fats with olive oil spreads.  This means you not only enjoy life more, but you can live longer as well!’
