Foodies Festival Edinburgh 2016
good but we didn’t try. Ultimately we would probably like to have gone to the festival a couple times but time didn’t allow and we might kid ourselves we would try something else but we would have ended up eating BBQ food both days.
Bit of a crappy photo on the right but second favourite thing I had all the day, the lamb kofta. Absolutely delicious. On the right is our favourite thing a lamb box. We have this every year without fail and it fails to disappoint.
Many of the stands do live food preparation presentations. This is really cool and we’ve seen some really interesting products over the last couple of years but we’ve yet to buy anything.
Chutneys, jams and marmalades. I’m not a huge chutney, marmalade person and occasionally have jam (usually home made stuff) so I didn’t try any but the point of this picture is lots of stands are giving away free samples.
Another typical stand this time run by Angus & Oink. They appeared to be selling lemonades, hampers, sauces and more
Macaroons. Call me miserable, cynical or whatever you want but I’ve always thought macaroons are vastly overpriced for what they are. However I do like eating them and find them really pretty but we didn’t buy any.
Liquid Nitrogen Ice Cream. Cool! Literally! But we were really full by this time.
Beef sandwich. Tasted really good but a bit like eating old rubber boots unfortunately.
Ticket office for the foodies festival. Only really took this picture to show off the posters Liv worked on.
The above shows the full poster as shown on their leaflets, advertising boards etc at a local shopping retail park. I couldn’t take a straight on photo as I would have to stand in the road and it’s way too busy during hours I’m willing to go over there but I think it looks cool regardless. So what did I think this year? Great, really enjoyed the whole show. We were there for around 2.5 hours, ate lots of really good food, had some nice drinks and it was nice to meet up with friends, have a chat and have a walk around. In all honesty I would have liked to have gone a couple times so I could have sampled more food but timeless this just wasn’t possible this year. I was really proud to see Liv’s work all around the site. She put a lot of work into her illustrations and as you’ll see from the billboard advert above they look really good. You can find her work at: http://www.livwanillustration.com I was impressed by the amount of space the festival had this year and was also happy some of our favourite things were cheaper. Our favourite food by far was the lamb box, absolutely delicious, I could a few of these, the kofta was also really delicious and we had some freshly cooked doughnuts that were yum. We didn’t watch any of the live cooking shows but we’re not really interested in those (I cook rarely and Liv was a professional chef for many years). You should also check out the Foodies Festival website Foodies Festival Edinburgh. Lots of information and gives you a great overview of what’s going on.
