Yesterday Me and the Mr headed off to this years Cheshire Food Festival. Held in the beautiful grounds of Arley Hall the festival brought together the Cheshire food community with a range of local suppliers and food vendors (@cheshirefoodfest).
The first stop was obviously the bar where we selected two of the finest Real Ales from the local Tatton Brewery (www.tattonbrewery.co.uk).
I choose a delicious honey ale called Lazy Haze
While Pete opted for a Blonde Ale
As expected both went down very nicely as we wondered around the festival in search of all the best goodies on offer.
If your a conniseur of anything sweet this is definately the place to be. Amongst huge Cupcake competition we opted for some beauties from Emerald City Cupcakes (www.emeraldcitycupcakes.co.uk). Oreo and Millionaire Shortbread flavours to be precise.
Another gem at the festival was a pop up tea shop called Polly the Vintage Caravan (pollythevintagecaravan.com).
Operating out the back of a retro caravan the ladies serve up delicious afternoon tea and other goodies in pretty vinatge tea cups and plates. Delicious, elequent and perfect for event's such as weddings this was my favourite stop.
We also sampled some delicous chocolate from a selection at Koko Noirs store (www.kokonoir.com).
And smpled some lovely Courgette, Mushroom & Rosemary Artisan Pizza by Fire & Slice before heading off to watch Abode Manchester Chef Bryn Evans give a three course cookery demonstration.
A perfect day out with great food and company I would recommend that you head down your local food festival and enjoy what it has to offer, I know I did.
