Dorset Food & Arts 2018 set to be a hot one!

With temperatures soaring here in sunny Dorset, this year’s festival is set to be a scorcher as the heatwave shows no sign of coming to an end. But don’t worry – we’ve got it covered with a whole host of cooling treats on offer including ice cold gelato, refreshing ciders, local wines and cold cuts and deli. Here’s a few of our favourites…

  1. Baboo Gelato
    Made from local organic milk and fresh, seasonal fruit, the mouth-watering ice creams from new company Baboo Gelato will cool you down in an instant! Try the award-winning raspberry sorbet, sample the creamy maple and walnut or go all-out with chocolate hazelnut swirl.
  2. Langham Wine Estate
    Cool off with a cold glass of English sparkling wine, hand-picked and processed in the heart of Dorset using a mixture of old and new techniques.
  3. Dorset Shellfish
    Tuck into dressed crab, lobster and line-caught bass, all fresh from Weymouth Bay. Sunshine, shellfish and toe-tapping tunes – what better way to spend your weekend?
  4. Mercato Italiano
    With temperatures to rival some of Europe’s hottest countries, why not go Mediterranean with your diet too? Mercato Italiano will be serving up cold meats, cheeses and olives galore to help you live the good life.
  5. West Milton Cider
    From crisp drys to fruity elderflowers, West Milton Cider have bubbles to suit every taste bud. Order a pint, find a perch and sit back and soak in the atmosphere of Queen Mother Square in the sunshine.
