Food festival 2013

After hearing such good things about the Food Festival at Gloucester Quays, Mr H and I spontaneously decided to check it out for ourselves and it certainly did not disappoint!
It was much larger than we'd anticipated, but not overwhelming, and there were some beautifully thought out stands, full to the brim with mouth-watering treats.

We grazed our way round, starting with some fantastic ham & cheese bread from a French bakery stall and lots of cheeky tasters. Then we grabbed some local cider and stopped for lunch at a camper van serving the most delicious, fresh Mexican taco's (very cleverly named Margo & Rita)
For dinner, we hunted down the best looking pie (from Plenty Pastry Ltd), accompanied by some veg from Brown & Green. Ok, I'm going to sound a bit crazy here but the carrots from Brown & Green were the most sensational carrots I have ever tasted - they were like little orange rays of sunshine!

 Overall, a fab day out for hubby and I- that's one thing we actually have in common, a love of great food. And the surroundings of Gloucester Quays made the day all the more lovely.
