We know our audience loves the sensual pleasures of food and drink and so we’re proud to present our food programme.
As we begin to drink ‘less but better’ we wanted to take an intelligent look at the things we drink for pleasure. Kitchen Confidential broadcaster and author of Chasing The Dram: Finding the Spirit of Whisky, Rachel McCormack introduces us to the clever pleasures of whisky, including how to cook with it in a ‘Whisky in the Wild’ masterclass.
If you stroll along the banks of Compton Pools you’ll reach the area known affectionately as ‘The Beach’ – an area dedicated to the most beautiful vista that can be found at the festival. It’s designed for you to take a bit of 'you time' and we have there for your delectation a Rum Shack, ‘Getaria’ - a restaurant built especially for the festival complete with parasol roof, a coffee area, and our floating stage – with its own programme of music and bands. Do not miss.
For 2018 we have put together clever pleasures – our programme of masterclasses designed to take your love of food and booze a little bit deeper. Book on Susan Schwartz’s time travel cocktail masterclass, or our rum cocktail workshop. We have an intro to whisky with Rachel MacCormack, a chance to get to grips with Cornish wines with vintner Dan Abbots, plus fascinating sessions on how to match beer with cheese and fine wine with cake.
We work closely with the Ibiza based dining chefs James Knight and Rebecca Otero renowned for their incredible dining experiences and each year we build a beautiful dining space – artfully decorated to house our incredible food events. For 2018 we invite you to enjoy our homage to the Great British motorway breakfast ‘Little Jeff’. Or book on to one of our daily rose tinted afternoon teas – our Sunday lunch paella with live flamenco up at the lake, our Sunday Isle of Noises Brit-Roast, our Friday Night Summer Heights Dinner or our Isle of Noises Banquet Spectacular on the Saturday Night.
