IT’S FESTIVAL TIME
Festival time The Great British Food Festival
Can I start by promoting the excellent produce and good fun that you can have at Food Festivals!!! Not just because I’m doing some of the demos and so are many of my friends new and old from Great British Bake Off. There are some excellent local chefs showing you how its done in the professional kitchen and how you can do the same at home.
I of course am still coming with the idea that “if I can bake then so can anyone” this comment was actually said to me at an event, yet I kind of took it as a massive compliment because I knew what she meant, at least I hope she meant it as a compliment??? People want to be able to have some idea of what they can do today (demonstrated by me and food they can dream of doing after a few more lessons demonstrated by professional chefs)
This year I have been privileged to host an interactive baking stage where members of the public have joined us in baking. I have met some fabulous people and I can see that the enthusiasm for baking and cooking is alive and strong and living in Britain.
These local festivals are a must for all food and music lovers. They offer a great day out for all the family, loads of seating and space, eateries of the highest quality and local and national food producers that offer some great deals on just about everything. Plus set in the grounds of the most beautiful stately homes this country has to offer. In or out of the EU these shows just go to show what is going on in our country despite all the political shenanigans. We continue to live and enjoy who and what we are. Passion is one of strongest emotions going and the air is filled with passion at these festival its heart warming to see people loving and caring for their artisan delights, Cheese makers loving cheese, Meat grown with the upmost care, cakes, salmon wine and Gin all handled as precious cargo and valued by those that buy.
Chefs and bakers old and new all coming together to celebrate food and life. Join in the fun and come along to a food festival appearing near you this Summer.
