About The Festival
Following hot on the heels of frosting flowers, this three-day festival brings together food and petals with grounding from big names including Mary Berry and garden writer, Alys Fowler. Also getting a trowel in will be the Fabulous Baker Brothers, Tom and Henry Herbert, who will be on hand to pass on tips as seen on their Channel 4 show. The earthier aspects of the festival are, this year, headed up by the Chilli Village, a whole area devoted to the hot-mouthed plants which will feature talks, demonstrations, and live band, The Red Hot Chilli Pipers. Younger festival attendees will be seen weaving in and out of floral displays and flying spoons, as they make the most of the more juvenile exploits offered in the children's area. And, showing due respect to tartan tops and elastic bands, the 2012 Jampionships competition will celebrate Dundee's vast berry fields and their most prolific utilisers - the jam makers.

Reviews

Dundee Flower and Food Festival was well-received last year, according to The Courier. The event’s Facebook page currently attracts 1, 281 green thumbs-up.

The popularity of the festival again led to long queues on roads leading to Camperdown Park, with broken down vehicles adding to the delays. Council leisure, arts and communities convener Bob Duncan felt the festival was worth the wait.

An absolutely fantastic meal; my sirloin steak was medium rare, and cooked to perfection.
