Norfolk is surely the place to be this September and October, as the annual Norfolk Food and Drink Festival gets underway with more mouth-watering highlights. Serving the best that Norfolk cuisine has to offer, this year’s edition of the festivities promises to show why it’s one of the most popular festivals of its kind in the U.K. What’s different this year? What was once a three-day affair in 2004 has grown into a month-long celebration that features the county’s local seasonal cuisine. Now in its second decade, the Norfolk Food and Drink Festival has transformed into a not-for-profit organisation that aims to promote and support the county’s local food producers.
