Food glorious day

on 04 October 2016.

The sun shone, the crowds came and there was a definite buzz around this year's Food Festival. Not so long ago such a cornucopia of high quality, locally sourced produce would have had a definite air of 'niche' around it, something for the foodies perhaps but not regular folk. Not anymore. Good food is going mainstream, as was evidenced by the sheer numbers who turned out to sample and buy from the delicious range of artisan cheeses, meats, breads and other top of the range comestibles.

There was a definite air of being part of a movement which has tired of cheap imported supermarket fare and is ready to embrace everything local. It looks better, it tastes better and it is definitely better for you. No additives and nasties, just wholesome food the way it used to be. Best of all, it is made right here on our doorsteps, allowing us to buy into our local economy instead of pouring our hard-earned money into the coffers of multinationals. Now doesn't that taste better?
