Festival Food - Move On Burgers

So, this week Melvin Benn from Reading and Leeds Festivals has announced that this year weekend ticket holders to both festival sites will get a free beer and a free burger on each day of the festival. Benn commented:


"...only for weekend ticket holders - but it will be from a number of food stalls and it will definitely happen. As I said, even if I have to pay for it myself it will happen!"


Burgers have been the default food service for festivals since festivals began but there are a number of alternatives that really deliver.



 Pie Ministerblog




Found at many a festival up and down the country. A personal favourite of mine. The menu consists of all kinds of pies - from Moo & Blue Pie (british Beef steak with red wine gravy and long Clawson stilton in lovely pastry) to special edition pies : The Hope & Glory Pie was introduced alongside the RFU Six Nations Championship.

Chorizo Express

I have stumbled across this little gem on a couple of occasions. The Chorizo Express is a family run, unique catering business. The menu may be small but it is packed with flavour. The signature dish being : FLAME GRILLED CHORIZO -w/ fresh wild rocket, Piquillo Peppers and olive oil in a toasted Ciabatta.

The Chilli Bar

Been drinking in the sun all day? Only one thing for it, a nice Burrito! The Chilli Bar has featured at a number of festivals and seems to be a firm favourite.  Serving all things Mexican this stall offers something for those that enjoy the spice side of Festival Food.
