For 2019 the Big Breakfast creeps into February running between Friday 1st February and Sunday 3rd February.

Again food shops, butchers, cafes, and hotels in and around Ledbury will be offering all kinds of treats to celebrate that most important of meals – breakfast featuring good locally produced food and drink.

Ledbury Food Group has asked those taking part to put on something different featuring local produce as well as their normal offerings, and we are expecting a wide range of breakfasts from the lightest breakfast to the heartiest, catering for all tastes. Look out for vegetarian, and vegan offerings too.

Last January we savoured an inventive range of specials using local ingredients including sausage ciabatta, potato and chorizo hash with eggs, cider baked ham, creamy hot porridge, waffle stackers, breakfast stacks, scotch pancakes with bacon and cider syrup, eggs Florentine, poached pear pancakes, creamy mushrooms, Welsh rarebit and a butcher’s sausage specially created for the event, as well as traditional Herefordshire breakfasts.

Nineteen local venues in and around Ledbury have already confirmed that they are taking part, including several joining the event for the first time:
