Leeds Indie Food returns with a showstopping line-up for 2022

Leeds’ legendary celebration of independent food and drink is back for 2022, and it’s on a mission to promote the city as the ultimate foodie destination. Leeds Indie Food 2022 kicks off on May 19th, which marks the beginning of 10 days of unique experiences, events and collaborations from some of the best indie food and drink businesses around.

Highlights include a meeting of minds between Ox Club and Kirkstall Brewery, who are joining forces to lay on an exclusive tasting menu filled with Yorkshire produce and beers old and new.

Rolling Social Events is also set to team up with Starward Whisky and The Tetley to put on a unique, local supper club experience, and again with Plantation Rum and Bastards Bistro for rum-based shenanigans at Grindhouse on Upper Briggate.

Handmade pasta specialists Sarto will team up with Latitude for an evening of exquisite food and drink. The evening, set to take place on 25th May, will include a five-course meal paired with aperitifs, wines and digestifs.
