Last weekend we packed up the car and headed up to Harrogate, Yorkshire to take part in the BBC Good Food Show. We were lucky enough to be the winners of the BBC Good Food Bursary award for British speciality food and were given a stand in the producers village along side some other delicious companies! It was so busy that we had to bring along Angus' Mum for some extra help (thanks Serena!)
It was an insightful experience for us as we came to realise that a lot of people did not know much about Wild Garlic and were really intrigued to find out how to cook with it, find it and use it. And to hear such great feedback from people tasting the pesto and salt was such a pleasure for us!
It's always lovely to meet new and exciting food producers and we happened to meet some over the weekend, in particular Katie and Ioannis from All about the Olive (seriously beautiful Greek Olive Oils,) Mellow Yellow (rapeseed based mayo and oil), Dr Will's Sauces and Razan from Yorkshire Dama Cheese (halloumi) yum yum.
A massive thank you must be given to Katie Truss who selected us for the award, what a great opportunity - Thank you BBC!
