I started the month by returning to Tewkesbury Food Festival for the first time in around 10 years. Tewkesbury was always the first show of the year for me, happening at the beginning of May to coincide with the first bank holiday of the year.
It was always a lovely start to the year.
Sadly, it stopped happening quite a while back. Last year, the lovely people of Cotswold Markets decided to bring it back. I didn't know about it until it was too late to book a stall. I made sure to book this year and I wasn't disappointed.
Although quite small, the sun was out all weekend and it was a lovely event. I got to see many of my other food selling friends. It was wonderful to see Don and his daughter Justine who run The Pudding Shop. And Jim & Carrie from Gillow Cider.
Carrie is the lovely lady that thinks it funny to call my stuff Fluffy rather than Fuffle. She's also responsible for the fluffy halo I was wearing all weekend.
Saturday was a strange old day and not very busy but the event seemed to come to life on the Sunday with seemingly twice as many people as the day before visiting.
Both the bars and the Fufflechino pods went down very well.
I saved the limited edition marbled Peanut Butter Fuffle bars for anyone that had seen my post on Facebook & Instagram to see how powerful the post was (around 20 people asked for it). It's a free to enter event and as well as all of us artisan food creators, there's plenty of hot food to buy, booze to drink, live cookery demonstrations and some fab live music too. So, all in all, a lovely weekend with lovely people selling and visiting.
I will be back next year!
