What’s on in September

September events

This is my favourite blog post to write, where we can look ahead at some of the great food and drink events that are coming up.

The Great Leamington Bake Off

September is the start of the food festival season, so book trips to Leamington Spa and Stratford upon Avon and for tastings, chef demos and food and ale trails.

The Gin Festival

Gin fans should brace themselves for the Gin Festival where more than 100 different gins will be showcased including the new and exclusive Tarquins “Single Estate Tea” Gin.

Rachel Barnett St Paul's Club wine tasting

Wine buffs can enjoy the launch of the first Wine Club by Bar Opus or an Australian wine and gourmet evening hosted by wine expert, Rachel Barnett. Real ale lovers can mix craft beer with history on the Tolkien Tour  with the Jewellery Quarter’s Two Towers  brewers.

Birmingham is hosting two very special events in September.

British Street Food Festival 2016 logo

Live music, beer buckets, food quizzes, fire pits, retro gaming and street art  will provide the backdrop to the British Street Food Awards, hosted by the Digbeth Dining Club. After four regional heats the public gets to vote for the winner. Michelin-starred chef Simon Hulstone and The Telegraph’s food writer Xanthe Clay will decide the judges’ favourites live on Sunday.

Itihaas Birmingham

At the Curry & Comedy dinner broadcaster, comedian and chef Hardeep Singh Kohli is teaming  up with Itihaas’ head chef, Updesh Shrivastava, to create a bespoke menu for 200 guests  in the Botanical Gardens.

Valrhona Chocolate & Peanut Butter Brownie, Jude's Vanilla Ice Cream The High Field

Give the diet a miss on Thursday 29 September for the first Pudding Club at The High Field, where guests will tuck into six desserts  – including a Valrhona chocolate and peanut butter brownie with Jude’s vanilla ice cream.

Please check the venues’ websites for ticket details and availability and let me know me if you are going to any of these fab events.
