My husband had told me that we were going out on Sunday on a dinosaur trail in the grounds of a Stately Home, as a treat for our little ones. Though thoroughly surprise me when we got there, as the East English food festival was on! I think I was more ecstatic than my sons were about seeing the dinosaurs. I was just so happy that I had taken my camera along with me. So here are a few snaps from yesterday and a wonderful time at the food festival…
These pretty platters are made out of recycled marble tiles with print of all sorts..you can place anything upon them from cheeses to breads, pizza and pies!
This range of cheddar cheese was absolutely stunning…from “The Great British Cheese Company”. I just couldn’t resist but buy some ploughman’s flavoured Cheddar, after sampling some, I was hooked!
Colourful array of oils…sometimes I wonder why I buy olive oil from the supermarket, when there are so many tasty varieties available. Note to myself : next time I run out of olive oil… look online and purchase.
It is really fascinating how many different oils you can actually get your hands on!
Hands down! These are the best cupcakes I have ever tasted! I devoured and shared a little bite with my husband. They were very beautifully presented, all hand made and sugar paste decorations handcrafted with love
Here are The Mulberry Girls who are responsible for these delicious sweet creations. Natalie and Claire were so helpful and truly passionate about their product and they should be. An assortment to please all palettes..just Superb!
Easter cupcakes that went down a treat.
I could smell the aroma of these striking coffee beans around the tent. So elegant and presented so well. Just loved this!
Lots of spices and pickles to keep all of us foodies busy in the kitchen…If I had the choice I think I would buy everything that I saw lol 🙂
A big stall dedicated to all baking goodies. I was so excited, I didn’t know where to look..though I had to get some olive bread to go with the cheese I had bought earlier. The loaf was incredibly soft and fluffy. Brilliant bakers!
The first time I have ever seen a curried flavoured cheese! Very original…
We end on a delicate sweet note with this scrummy coconut ice. I wish now I had bought some. Oh well..will have to make some soon to satisfy my craving.
I really hope you enjoyed coming round with me at East England food festival. We were very lucky with the weather, it was extremely sunny, quite warm and a cool breeze. Spring was definitely in the air plus fantastic food and drink and family, what more could you want!
Have yourselves a peaceful and productive week and I shall see you tomorrow with a new flat bread recipe. Much love D x
