Foodies Festival - Battersea Park

I couldn't be happier that the sun has decided to grace us with a guest appearance.  The world seems a better place when the skies are blue and the sun is shining.  It was perfect weather for the Foodies Festival in Battersea Park this weekend and we had a fab day out eating and drinking in the sun.  (Rather too much of both tbh - oops!)

We enjoyed a guest chef demonstration from Richard Kirkwood from J Sheeky - although disappointed we didn't get to taste any of the food.  We missed out on tickets for the wine tastings, huge queues for these annoyingly.

Nonetheless, we still managed to eat and drink our way around the world: Jersey oysters, fresh coconuts with rum, Thai green curry, raclette, champagne, paella, pink cider, ice cream, prosecco.  Hmm, no wonder i felt so rough yesterday ;-)

One of my favourite stands sold all sorts of fresh potted herbs, with some unusual varieties.  I went home with chocolate mint, thai basil and cat nip (for the cats!). 

There are lots of independent producers at the show and it's good fun to talk to people who are so passionate about their food.  There are two more festivals this summer, one in Oxford, the other Edinburgh.
