Outside of the usual music side of things, I have to admit this is a guilty pleasure. Personally I blame the TV and newspapers for the scare stories and opening our eyes to how the food is really made before it hits the supermarket shelves! Buy local, natural foods, treat animals with respect before you eat them, avoid the mass produced foods full of salt, fat and hidden E numbers they say! With this in mind, the Love Food Festival showcases the best local food producers in the region, as well as hosting cookery demo’s, book workshops and the chance to taste good food to your hearts content, with the added bonus of buying what you like too. As you’d expect, it’s a fest of organic natural goodness, home made or locally produced goods including chocolate, sausages, wine, oil, bread, meats and much more besides. Taking over the Old Brunel Railway Station at Temple Meads, Bristol it was good to see the show full to the brim with stand holders eager to show off their wares. Surprisingly, the hidden gem for all those with children was a great kids area where they could get hands on making food, or just get involved dressing up, playing and generally messing around whilst the adults got down to the serious business for eating! If you like your food, it’s worth checking out the future Love Food Festival’s – see www.lovefoodfestival.com for more details
