‘Taste Knutsford’ celebrates first anniversary


‘Taste Knutsford’, Knutsford’s walking food tour that launched last autumn, recently celebrated its 1st birthday.

The tour showcases the best of the town’s culinary offerings with guests walking around Knutsford tasting a variety of foods from brunch, nibbles, ice creams, and sorbet, tapas through to afternoon tea, cheese and gin.

Lasting around 3 hours, the tour is led by local resident and cake maker, Lucy Farnon (Knutsford Bake Club), assisted by Nicola Arnell who ensures the social media ‘feed’ is kept up-to-date throughout each tour.

Town centre manager, Sandra Curties, said: “Since autumn 2018 around 160 people have enjoyed a food tour – meaning they have tasted 160 sausage rolls, ice cream, tapas and cheese amongst other treats.

We are really pleased about how well the tours have been received, our Trip Advisor reviews, and how hard the venues work when hosting a tour.  The guests really love meeting the owners and finding out more about the establishment and Knutsford than you would on a normal visit.”

Tours can be booked via www.tasteknutsford.co.uk and private tours for groups of six or over can also be arranged. These are great for hen nights, birthdays or anniversaries.
