Foodies and racegoers alike are invited to a glorious weekend of feasting, drinking and racing at Ascot this September with Raymond Blanc OBE and Candice Brown 

Taking place as part of the four-day Festival of Food & Wine at Ascot Racecourse, Raymond Blanc OBE and Candice Brown will be headlining the chef demonstration stage on Saturday 9th September with wine expert Neil Phillips talking visitors through his pick of wines.

Making the event line-up even sweeter, celebrated baker Candice Brown has annouced that she’ll also be creating a signature cake to be served as part of Ascot’s afternoon tea menu.


On the same day, racegoers can also look forward to a four-course menu designed by renowned chefs Raymond Blanc OBE, Phil Howard and James Tanner, alongside Ascot’s award-winning head chef Ben Dutson. To be served in the Parade Ring Restaurant, dishes will be perfectly complemented by a fine wine selection curated by connoisseurs, Bibendum.

The four-day Festival of Food & Wine runs alongside two days of Ascot’s Flat season racing and is one of the summer’s culinary highlights. As well as live chef demonstrations, more than 140 stallholders will be showcasing scrumptious produce from across Britain and beyond.

Top chefs will also be hosting demonstrations in the Cooking Theatre with barbecue masterclasses and communal eating at The Social Kitchen available each day.
