Salcombe Crabfest announce 2020 sponsors and demo chefs

Leading South Hams estate agent Marchand Petit is delighted to be one of the main sponsors of Salcombe Crabfest 2020 along with award-winning holiday letting agency Coast & Country Cottages and famed distilling company Salcombe Gin.

With Salcombe Crabfest now just a matter of months away, the much-anticipated event looks set to once again take Salcombe by storm on Sunday 3rd May.

Ed Tallack, Marchand Petit Director at their Salcombe office says: “Marchand Petit are absolutely delighted to sponsor the 2020 Crabfest. It’s truly a wonderful event and a fabulous opportunity for the town to open its doors and show off everything it has to offer. This year marks Marchand Petit’s 30th anniversary so what better way to celebrate than by helping to raise funds for the many worthwhile causes, whilst enjoying ourselves at the same time!”  

This year the line up of confirmed chefs coming to do free demonstrations is bigger and better than ever before.  Currently, the list includes the Rick Stein Exec Chef Stephane Delourme, the Rockfish Group Head Chef Kirk Gosden, BBC1s Saturday Kitchen chefs Freddy Bird and Jane Baxter.

Other returning chefs are the Oyster Shack’s Andy Richardson, Ocean’s head chef Janey Syrett and winner of the 2020 Trencherman’s Award for ‘Best Newcomer’, Jamie Rogers of Twenty Seven in Kingsbridge.  With demonstrations from these, and so many more, the chefs demo tent is not to be missed.

Other highlights on the day include a wonderful street market filled with local exhibitors, children’s activities, talks, live music… and plenty of delicious food and drink options too!

The event is completely free to attend and is entirely in aid of charity. Over the past five years, the festival has raised in excess of £40,000 for local organisations. This year, the event will be raising funds for Dementia and Alzheimer’s organisations locally.
