Every year the BBC Good Food Show in Birmingham NEC is one of the highlights of November for me. Stallholders have festive offerings as well as their usual products and it gets me in the mood for Christmas, I buy gifts for my family and try so many samples that I’m usually too full to have lunch. It’s also fun to meet some familiar faces:
Stall holders I’m definitely heading to include:
Hedonist Bakery – they sell artisan breads which you can freeze to finish baking yourself at home. We have tried one at home recently and they are truly delicious!
Taste Gourmet Spice Gran Reserva Balsamic Vinegar – I bought a bottle of this last year and it was delicious so I was delighted when they sent me a bottle this year!
Mellow Yellow Rapeseed Oil – This makes amazingly crispy roast potatoes and great for salad dressings too.
Munchies Seeds – I have bought these lots this year and they are handy ( and healthy ) snacks to keep on my desk to nibble on through the day.
Swifts Bakery – ah I’ve bought bread from Swifts every time I head to the show, Winter and Summer. It’s perfect. My favourite is the chilli, lime and coriander and I hope it’s there this time!
In previous years I’ve enjoyed heading to the Supertheatre to watch some of my favourite celeb chefs in action. I’m hoping to take a look at some of the new products from some of my favourite brands like Kenwood as well as nibbling my way through all of the cheeses and brownies in the hugeeeee hall at the NEC. I also love browsing stalls and trying things I’d never have tasted otherwise. The Garlic Farm always tempt me with their garlic pesto and smoked garlic bulbs.
