Foodie-Happenings around Newcastle March/April

I love good food, eating it and making it - and I want to share all of the foodie events I know about which are happening in or around Newcastle (taking part, buying, eating, learning etc).  There's always plenty to get involved in.

I'll tag these posts as 'Foodie-Happenings' and tweet them when there's something new.
If you want me to share any foodie events - email me (or add a comment to the page)
