Last weekend Miss B and I visited the BBC Good Food Show when it came to Harrogate for the first time. Judging by the hoards of people in attendance it was a roaring success. We sampled more than our fair share of the various spirits available and walked around the Harrogate International Centre in a bit of a dreamy haze until we sorted ourselves out with some good old Yorkshire Tea.
I really recommend attending various food shows if you enjoy cooking (and food in general). I have picked up so many useful tips by watching cookery demonstrations since I started blogging. Miss B and I watched Brian Turner, Lisa Faulkner and James Martin prepare some wonderful dishes – but nothing I think most people couldn’t manage at home. This is obviously part of the charm (in my opinion), nobody wants to forlornly watch a cookery demonstration of something delicious knowing they have no hope of making it for themselves. I actually found James Martin’s demonstration pretty funny (and the samples of gin had worn off by then).
Anyway, I really really want the Good Food Show to return to Harrogate next year. The range of produce (both local and from further afield) was amazing. I’ll have to blog some of the things I learned at a later date.
Did you attend the Good Food Show? What did you think?
A massive thank you to the people organising the Good Food Show for sending me a Press Pass and a complimentary ticket. You made 2 girls very happy. To find out more about upcoming food shows click here.
