Birmingham tops Olive poll of foodie cities

Birmingham has been named the UK’s foodiest city by olive magazine with London coming fifth!

 

Alongside the invention of the balti, olive cites the trio of Michelin-starred restaurants, a food heritage including Typhoo, Bird’s Custard and HP Sauce, social foodie enterprises and food events including the Good Food Show, Europe’s largest food festival, in terms of visitor numbers.

According to the judges: “Outsiders may persist in refusing to spend leisurely weekends there, but Britain’s second city is underestimated.”
