Delicious Doncaster 2020

Our Events Team isn’t going to let something like Covid-19 stand in the way of the plans for this year, and whilst we are taking seriously the advice given around social distancing and mass gatherings that doesn’t mean we can’t still bring you Delicious Doncaster 2020.

So, we’ve gone “online” and this year we will bring you a Food and Drink Festival with a difference, one you can enjoy from home and even get involved with!

From the 5 – 7 June we will bring all you foodies, heaven on a plate, so here’s what’s planned:

Professional cooking demonstrations – We’ve been busy asking our friends from previous years, Doncaster College, esteemed local cooks and chefs and a range of our very own food and drink related businesses to video themselves and send to us so that each day of the 3 days we can bring you something special.

You’ll need to check www.dnconnects.com (the temporary home of Doncaster Events) for the show times and these will also be shared as Facebook events on Visit Doncaster’s Facebook page. Each day we’ll premier video’s and then store them all on the dnconnects website for you to watch at a later time should our premiers not fit in with your routine.

So… how do you get involved?

Lockdown Kitchen

Have you ever watched a TV chef and thought… “I could do that”… well now is your chance – we want you to video yourself and send it to us…

Send us your videos to Doncaster.Events@doncaster.gov.uk

They can be filmed on a phone, tablet or camera but must be LANDSCAPE please and no longer than 10 mins in duration (ideally shorter please)

You should film the cooking, not the prep, so please get everything ready beforehand so all you’re sharing with us is the “how to” bit… also don’t keep the video running whilst it’s in the oven! Pause and restart to show us your finished masterpiece.

We would also like you to send us a still photo of the ingredients list and another photo of your finished dish.

Your video should be marked as relating to one of the following please so we can categorise them:

  • My Favourite Dish
  • Old Family Recipes
  • Lock Down Triumphs and Disasters

Each video to be added to the website with the Delicious Doncaster logo as the cover image, followed by your photos of ingredients and method and then the video.

One of the annual features of the Delicious Doncaster Food and Drink Festival is the “Bake Off” and this year we will deliver this again – but with a difference!
