LET THE SHOW BEGIN…..
The Kent County Agricultural Society, organisers of the Kent County Show are looking to introduce themed food courts for the event on 16, 17 & 18 July 2010. There will be six food courts where visitors will be able to purchase food, as well as the large food tent which will have local, national and international produce, some of which will be available to eat immediately or takeaway.
New for 2010 is the International Food Court located in the centre of the Delting Showground next to the picnic area and bandstand. There will be ten mobile catering units as well as a Continental Café from a company based in Canterbury and a bar run by Shepherd Neame. Drovers Way from Warwickshire will bring an international carvery with Mediterranean style lamb and Cajun pork served in pitta bread. The W*Indies Caribbean kitchen will offer visitors chicken and mutton curry and a special jerk chicken dish with rice and peas. Los Amigos! specialist Latin American Cuisine, have a selection of burritto’s, fajitas and quesadillas all
costing around ?5.00. The International Food Court will also have pizzas, rice and noodles, Thai, German sausages and an American burger bar.
Farm to Fork will be a new area located next to the new Countryside Ring. Porkymoomoo’s
from Middlesex specialise in seasonal, locally sourced meat and serve their grilled products with a special smokey garlic mayonnaise. They believe that it is possible to provide healthy, fresh, top quality food at outside events. Wild Grills a company based in Canterbury serve venison, wild boar, ostrich and bison sausages and burgers. Competitively priced at just
?3.00 - ?4.00, rare meats are a lower fat option to the traditional beef burger. Griggs will be offering a ploughman’s lunch and the Rainbow Oven will provide vegetarian wraps.
Produced in Kent will be relocated to an area alongside the Horse Rings and will be serving a variety of produce from their Kent members. This area will allow the organisation to expand for 2010 and will allow visitors to see the very best Kent produce.
There will be two British Food Courts in the Agricultural Area selling pies, hog roast and jacket potatoes as well as filled baguettes. Shepherd Neame will have four bars located around the site and The Coffee Cart Company will have four coffee points for visitors to grab a cup of coffee and a pastry.
The new Village Green Café will have Tea Rooms serving the classic British Cream Tea, Dan Caldbeck who will be running the Tea Rooms said “we have no idea how popular the Cream Tea will be but we have anticipated that over the three days of the Kent County Show it is possible to serve over 1,000 people”. He continued “the Village Green will be a wonderful place to sit with a cup of tea and cream scone and watch the maypole dancers, cricket and tug of war”.
In addition to the wide variety of food on offer at this year’s Show, visitors will have access to
large picnic areas, many of them under the cover of trees to give some shade on what is hoped to be a wonderfully hot Kent County Show weekend.
