I certainly haven’t been disappointed! A few weeks ago I took part in The Liverpool Food & Drink Festival in the city’s Sefton Park.
In-between running my stand I managed to take a look a what everyone else was tasting and taking part in. I will CERTAINLY be back next year!
Yesterday, which also happened to be my birthday, we took a trip into town to take part in The Hope St Food Fest again nothing disappointed!!
We bought cheeses, Aberdeen Angus beefburgers, delicious chocolates, lavender, almond & rosewater meringues & olive & herb foccacia bread.
I ended up eating way more that I had bargained for then justified it as a “birthday treat” !
If you are on facebook you can view all my pics from the two festivals here
One stall that caught my eye yesterday was “The Brink”
It is not a charity but a recovery social enterprise.
The Brink won’t be selling alcohol when it opens in doors but aims to deliver much, much more in health and community benefits.
They will stock a wide selection of great local and seasonal provisions, make their own delicious bread and freshly squeezed juices.
Their team will be working with a wonderful collection of local and organic food from the North West. You can read all about The Brink on their website http://bit.ly/qsza4m . It is due to open in Liverpool in the very near future! I now have a fab new Brink Bag as well :)
I now need to find myself some local Autumnal and Winter Foodie Festivals to attend as I have definitely caught the bug for trying to include locally sourced foods whenever I can.
If you have any great finds of your own it would be great to hear from you…do share!!
