It's one of my favourite tongue-tantilising events of the summer, full of lovely food produced by talented foodies from around the county and beyond.
I got to try lots of 'freebie-bites' going around the event that I didn't need any lunch. I had a few too many free 'trial' scoops of ice cream flavours (I had a neapolitan cocktail of tastes on my tongue for the rest of the day).
1. I can't remember who made the macaroons but just look at the lovely colours!
2 and 5. I Love Patisserie - made by Tracey Dugan in Herefordshire.
3. Crumpet cupcakes. They looked amazing and I wanted to try one, but by this time I was on sugar overload and so my friend tried one for me. She loved it!
4. A lovely array of Jams...
5. Frasers Fudj. Fraser of Fraser's Fudj is an 11 year old wonder-kid! He's the mastermind behind this fudge company - the burnt butter fudge is particularly special and I think that this very clever young chap is certainly an Alan Sugar of the future. I can see in the year 2020, Fraser and his fudge company (that derived from his grandfather's fudge recipe books) will be a household name!
I also bought a lovely honey and mustard dressing from a chap from Stainswick Farm. Possibly the yummiest honey and mustard dressing I've tasted in a long time - beats my current favourite from Marks and Spencers - so I just sloshed some on a quick salad for lunch. Yum.
There's another food festival on this coming weekend called the Love Food Festival (there's also another one on 1st July here) that I might pop along to and get some more food inspiration and treats. I.just.can't.wait.
