Now you may have realised by now that I'm pretty passionate about food, I love literally most types of food I'm not fussy. Naturally I was delighted to hear that the food and drinks festival in Canterbury was back again this year because I thought it would be another chance to stuff my mouth with scrumptious grub! As now I'm a certified blogger I thought I would take a little food diary for you all to sample at your leisure and blog a few of my pictures from the day.
In my opinion, when you go to a food festival the idea is to sample as many of the culinary delights as possible...but the problem always is the amount of choice, it's so difficult to know what to try first!
We opted for some mini slider burgers with Montery Jack cheese and onion jam, they were so delicious! They were served in a potato bun and we got to watch them make them from scratch in front of us. I'm actually glad they were small as it saved plenty of space for more.
Next up on the list was a taste of Thailand, authentic Pad Thai dishes with a choice of chicken or prawn, we opted for the chicken and then added extra chilli and nuts, we enjoyed it washed down with a glass of Prosecco for me and a unique Kentish Toffee Apple cider for hubby...I know, we live the life :)
It was a really great atmosphere packed with people, bands playing, aromas wafting through the air from all the great food and drink stalls, the sun was shining too! Just as well as apparently we are due rain from this weekend, no more park trips for me then.....
My little man was with us too and he was tucking into a packet of quavers and a cheese spread sandwich, he loves his food in his own way! ;)
As the hazy afternoon drew on we tried a Lamb Kofte baguette, we had ours in a lovely freshly baked tiger baguette with chimchurrie sauce... yum! Food to eat on the spot wasn't the only delight, we purchased 3 bottles of REALLY hot chilli sauce (real hot hot face burners, but then we do like it hot!), some Kentish blue cheese and a bottle of toffee apple cider hubby was drinking. There was also a childrens' play area there too, we went on the Merry Go round with Hugo, not sure if he was overly impressed though!
After a great afternoon we decided to trek back home with full bellies and high spirits, totally stuffed and exhausted. However, before we left though we couldn't resist one last treat each, a freshly made onion bhaji with Raita dip and Mango Chutney...these were no ordinary bhajis...not content with a normal sized one we indulged in a gargantuan mammoth one!
A totally indulgent afternoon but that's what food festivals are for right?
