“There’s nothing better than indulging in great local food in the sunshine to the sound of great music” - Andy Corrigan, original Mekon and Mekonville organiser
Although new and exciting endeavors within the arts is the theme of Mekonville, only the finest local food and drink will be on offer to visitors to the festival.
Popular Suffolk food blogger Ruth Bolton aka ‘SuffolkFoodie’, will be bringing her superb taste to everyone at the festival as main caterer with her independent venture ‘Little House Of Cooking’. A family business and coordinated by her 3 daughters, Little House Of Cooking is a familiar site (and taste) in Suffolk and the surrounding area, serving nothing but good quality, home-made cooking.
Joining the line-up on the Friday will be the vintage food truck of ‘My Kitchen Your Place’: “originally a French fire truck from St Tropez in the 1970s, our Peugeot J7 has been lovingly converted into a fully functioning mobile kitchen…serving locally-sourced refined street food” says Phoebe Cripps.
Saturday will see a taste of Cyprus with the ‘Souvlaki Shack’, serving native Cypriot-style recipes and cooked as such: “our meat is cooked slowly over charcoal on a Cypriot 'foukou' and served with salad, tomato and tzatziki in a warm, handcrafted pitta.”
Any festival-goer will know that no rural festival is complete without locally produced beer, and Mekonville will not disappoint.
Serving ‘honest beer from Suffolk’, Petta Fiesta is a loyal lover of Earl Soham Brewery and their produce.
Beer enthusiasts will already be aware that the iconic Aspalls cider is brewed in Debenham, which just so happens to be the next village along from Pettaugh, where the festival is taking place.
