Savour is a foodie festival which takes place in Edinburgh which doesn’t deserve to be called a festival.

Why? Because unlike the usual 2, 3 or even 5 day stamina sapping events, Savour runs for one afternoon only. Yup, you read that right, just one afternoon on 5 July 2015. But what an afternoon it promises to be. You would be hard pushed to find so much variety, creativity and innovation at any other event this year. And in such a short space of time too!

Coco Chocolatier Edinburgh Savour

Visitors will be treated to a smorgasbord of food and drink treats as more than 30 boutique bars, independent restaurants, craft brewers, local distillers and artisan bakers showcase the best of Scotland’s edible entertainment.

From taking a virtual tube trip to discover more about wine, to sampling home made gin in a former dissection lab, through to learning about foraged food and sampling a liqueur created to save red squirrels, one thing is certain, you won’t be bored at this ambitious addition to Edinburgh’s festival calendar.
