One of my favorite signs that summer is truly on its way is a trip to the Foodies Festival! My love of food is well documented here on this blog…and who doesn’t love a fun day out in the sun? During our last visits, we’ve always had a great time, picked up a fun kitchen gadget or two, and, of course, taken part in delicious food and drink from around the world. This year was no different (though since we’re moving we cooled it on picking up new kitchen gadgets), as you’re about to see!
Whenever we visit the festival, we like to take a lap, see what’s on offer, and map our day out. This year, we decided to grab tickets to two of the theatre shows: Celebrity Chef Nigel Brown showed us how to make a few delicious desserts and Melissa Cole walked us through a beer tasting tutorial!
This event is always a great time to taste new things, meet local business owners, and stock up on tasty treats and gifts for family and friends. Every year I vow to buy lots of cured meat and hot sauces and I highly recommend that you do the same. There’s something so special about being able to buy food that’s lovingly made and straight from the source!
If you haven’t made it to the festival this year, never fear. There’s an upcoming date this weekend in Birmingham and if you’re in the area you must go!
Hope I haven’t made you too hungry!
