Just a few pictures here, and a couple of recommendations;
The Hog Roast sandwich was delicious. OK so it’s £5 for a sandwich, but what a sandwich. At the risk of sounding like Joey from ‘Friends@, you get a lovely ciabatta bap, a subtle tasting apple sauce, plenty fresh, crunchy rocket, the most delectable slices of pork topped off with yummy crackling.
I did however remember to take a photo of these Churros.
These are a Mexican (or Spanish) favourite, not too dissimilar in taste and texture to doughnuts, which are gently sprinkled with sugar, cinnamon and served with a chocolate dipping sauce. I would have preferred a more thicker sauce to coat the Churros, but I’m still happy to recommend them. Cost £4, enough to serve 2 people. I had to take some home as I couldn’t manage all. Here is a link to a fab looking recipe – http://treataweek.blogspot.com/2007/04/mexican-doughnuts-churros-recipe.html
I purchased a bottle of St Germain, which is a great tasting elderflower liqueur. I’m already dreaming up loads of recipes, including elderflower sorbet, elderflower cupcakes. With the bottle came a booklet of cocktail recipes. I’m not sure if I will be testing these, but I may be able to get a few ideas for cake flavourings. I shall of course keep you posted.
The food market was one of the free highlights of the festival, and one where I hope to be able to revisit – if nothing else for the great sandwich. Simply Wow!!! 😀
