Food, My life

Great British Food Festival

Hello everyone! I hope you had a great weekend and that you all got to do something fun and/or relaxing, whichever your preference. I myself opted for fun this time and decided to attend Great British Food Festival on Saturday. And what a great day it was! So much food and drinks, chef demos, live music – all you need for a fab day out. I’m so excited to share my favourites from that day with you and I’ve also included links to their websites in case something catches your eye.

I absolutely loved that garlic jam by The Garlic Farm and of course we couldn’t leave without buying a jar of Vampire’s Revenge.

Our favourite from previous food festivals that we’ve been to was also present – The Cheshire Cheese Company – with some very exciting new flavours.

I think I tried pretty much all the flavours that they had (the Jamco ladies insisted that I do) and they all tasted absolutely amazing. Plus these spreads have no additives or colourings, are homemade, 100% natural and SO versatile.

A great selection of beers and ales by Robinsons Brewery. I tried the Black Unicorn and I’m no expert but I liked it. Plus it’s called Unicorn. I mean. How could I not try it?

The. Best. Fudge. Ever. Oh my goodness. It was like fudge heaven. So many flavours from Cherry Bakewell to Silly Chilli (HOT!) and everything in between. The layers of flavours you get as you eat a piece are just phenomenal. If you want to try the best fudge ever, look no further, as Stan & Milly’s will have you covered.

Looking for a huge selection of amazingly flavourful teas? Carslake Tea Company will help you with that. I had such a hard time trying to pick just a few to buy, I wanted to take them all home with me! In the end I chose to begin my collection with Pina Colada Infusion, Strawberry and Kiwi tea and Christmas Cookie Fruit tea. I’ll be back for more soon!

After eating all the samples everywhere it was nice to discover the Nutty Drink Company stall. Their drinks were really refreshing with no added sugar, dairy free, suitable for vegans and less than 130kcal per bottle. So if you’ve got any dietary restrictions or if you’re just after a refreshing drink, I’d definitely recommend them. My personal favourite was the Cucumber, Pineapple & Kiwi drink.

In addition to food and drinks there were other stalls with various bits and bobs including one with these adorable mug candles and one that sold dragon feeders! And yes, I’m quite convinced it’s not a bird feeder but a dragon one. So if you’re looking to lure those dragons in, this could help.

Overall I had a fantastic time and I’m so proud of myself for being able to manage my anxiety enough to go through with this and fully enjoy the day.
