First stall – first cake purchase. Not this one, but the best brownie I have had in my entire life. So moist and light, I actually couldn’t believe that someone can create such perfection!
Next purchase: 3 chutneys from The Cherry Tree for £10 – an absolute bargain, if you ask me. They are to die for and really flavoursome without being overpowering or too sweet. Perfect for Christmas presents too!
We didn’t get any pies this time as it was just too hot, but the people from Pieminster are pie-making gods, so if you ever get a chance to try one of them, grab it with both hands. It will be worth it!
Kitchen herbs as far as the eye can see: This must have been the biggest herb stall that I have seen in my entire life. You could buy everything from basil, oregano and thyme to more exotic herbs such as chocolate mint and that at really reasonable prices.
When Ben saw this German salami stall, he instantly ushered me over there to proudly introduce me as the German girlfriend. Unfortunately, the exhibitors weren’t really German, but who cares? They’re salami was nice and they made us try each and everyone of them!
This frying pan of epic proportions reminded me a lot of German Bauernfrühstück and although it has the fried potato element in common with it, the addition of fried sausages and Comte cheese made it taste quite different.
The people from Gourmet Burger Kitchen came in style. How cool is their colourful burger van? If you live in Bristol, visit them on Park Street or in Cabot Circus – they seriously make the best burgers in town!
This stall was one for me: I absolutely love cakes and biscuits and this stall had it all. Soft sponge and crispy biscuits – just how I like it. Even Amy woke up from her nap when we tried some Madeleines.
They were lovely and moist, really light and when I tried them, I instantly thought how nice they’d be in Tiramisu or other desserts and cakes. It would have been rude not to buy some biscuits, cakes and their recipe book, don’t you think?
We didn’t actually buy anything here, but I really liked the colourful sign advertising all the different flavours of juice that were available. Mixed berry sounds awesome!
It’s an owl, it’s made from sugar paste and I just love it. I’m a total sucker for pretty cakes and this just caught my eye because it was so bright and colourful. I wish I could create something as pretty as this!
You like fudge? Then this stall would have been your idea of fudge heaven. A little pricey, but totally worth it as everything was handmade and super yummy. Ben is still gutted that we didn’t by more. I guess, I’ll have to make some homemade fudge myself now. I have already looked into recipes.
You can’t ever have too many sauces seems to be the motto that Ben lives by. We’ve got two entire kitchen cupboards full of the stuff, yet he still bought more. It was nice though, so I guess he gets away with it.
This vegan Mississippi Mud Pie made my mouth water before I even arrived at the Bristol Foodies Festival. Aly had instagramed it and when I saw the stall I got all excited and started taking pics of it and telling the stallholder that his cake was famous. He didn’t really seem bothered by it at all – bore!
