The sunny weather is coming which means food festival season is beginning. Huzzah! Food festivals are a glorious thing, namely because of all the food and drink on offer, but also because you get to find brands and meet new people that you wouldn’t normally discover and I highly recommend all you foodie lovers go to one.  Kicking off the food festival season for me was Surrey Food Festival which was situated in Old Deer Park in Richmond. If you are following on Instagram you will have seen many delectable delights at the weekend and got the inside scoop on Instastories. Despite…

Pinch of This certainly caught my eye at the Sandown Food Festival and is not a company I have come across before. So who are they? Well Mark & Lucieanne are from Surbiton and are offering us exceptionally delicious gluten free treats in the form of brownies, flapjacks, cookies, cupcakes, quiches and French macarons, that taste as good as regular baked goods.  Gluten free gets a bit of a bad rep for producing brick like, heavy foods and usually pretty obvious that it is gluten free. However the ethos of Pinch of This is if it tastes gluten free then it…

It wasn’t until earlier this month that I even knew about the Sandown Park Food Festival. A little email popped into my inbox telling me all about the event and asking whether I would like tickets to go.

On the chopping block we had The Baker Brothers, Antonio Carluccio OBE, Fernando Stovell, Masterchef Champion Jane Devonshire and Steven Drake to name a few. Sadly GBBO winner Nadia Hussain had to drop out at…

Thanks to The Bloggers Hub, Monday marked my first Food Festival for Bloggers, and what a fab event it was. Centred in London at Kanaloa, there was plenty on offer, and I didn’t get lost trying to find it! The range of Brands was diverse from naturally fruity baked nibbles courtesy of Urban Fruit (baked is definitely better), to deliciously squishy marshmallows by Miss Millars (the blackberry crumble OMG), and delectable macaroons from L’Orchidee (hello watermelon heaven). Breakfast has also been covered by Cereal Lovers 100% natural granola and Stoats Porridge bars. It was great to see some Gluten Free options, and Thanks for Frank’s do…
