Countdown to CarFest

Home » News » Food Glorious Food!

Looking for any excuse to use my favourite picture I've ever used on the website, I am always thrilled to be able to talk about roast potatoes.

CarFest have finely revealed the line-up for the the tasty RoastFest competition, which will be opened by the wonderful Tom Kerridge — who will also be sharing his own roasting tips.
Local restaurants going all out with the big spuds to win this coveted award include the Cholmondeley Arms, Alderley Edge Hotel & Restaurant, Chef & Brewer and the Ring O' Bells. You can come along to the Food Fair at CarFest to try the roasts and gravy.
