As easy as it might be to believe that the paths of twenty thousand people would converge at Melton Mowbray every October simply to appreciate the pork pies, those dumpy pastry parcels without which a Leicestershire ploughman's lunch would be meaningless are in fact just a tiny part of this eclectic event. Aside from such traditional, regional delights as Bakewell puddings, sloe gin, home made sausages, rustic breads, old fashioned sweets and very serious cheeses, the area's best modern and international culinary gems are also on offer and you'll discover exciting new wines, sushi, curries, Mediterranean specialties, and plenty of new-generation organic, healthy and eco-conscious products. Celebrity chefs play a role in educating visitors as to the latest ideas, and the culinary fusion of cultures is reflected in music and dance performances as well as art and craft stalls.
