Happy Sunday

My stomach is full of street food and my cheeks are flushed from day drinking in the wind and rain. My hair smells like BBQ and my rucksack is full of treats. This can mean only one thing: Foodies Festival. The festival is in its 10th year now, and I think this is my 4th year of visiting. I love to go every year to hang out with fellow food lovers, soak up the (usually abysmal, thanks April) weather, and check out new vendors. This year, my highlight was Mai Taiko by miles. I don’t know if they’re newcomers but I definitely didn’t see them last year, and their chicken katsu burger (£8, pictured above) was stunning.

It’s all still happening tomorrow and you can find tickets on their website – head to their FB page for up to date deals on prices though! Yesterday, some …

Foodies Festival Brighton 2015

What a lovely Bank Holiday it’s been! My little sister turned 18 on Friday – the cake I baked to celebrate is quite possibly my best work yet, blog post to follow – and on Saturday I strolled down to the Foodies Festival on Hove Lawns.

As you can see from the picture of the Pimm’s tent, I picked the worst day weather-wise to get down there. Being British, of course, we didn’t let that get in the way of eating and drinking in the open air – although we didn’t stay as long as we might have done if it were as gloriously sunny as last year. This year, I was lucky enough to get my hands on a pair of VIP tickets, which entitled …

Brighton Foodies Festival 2015 | Your chance to WIN tickets!

Last year – can I just say here, I cannot believe that it was entire year ago – I had an absolute ball at the Brighton Foodies Festival. I had just started blogging and took loads of relatively unskilled photos and wrote about them in a blog post that seems to me now as almost embarrassing.. poorly edited pics, horrific formatting, it’s got it all. My blog skills have thankfully improved somewhat over the past year though so you can look forward to this year’s post as I’ll be attending once again! The festival will be on Hove Lawns from the 2nd to the 4th of May and if you’re gonna be in town you gotta get tickets. You can buy them on their website for £13 per grown-up. Don’t want to fork out for tickets?
