If you are wondering what you should do this weekend then I definitely recommend you consider getting to Ludlow for its food festival. I went along to give a Talk and Tasting last year, and it had been a few years since I last went along and I was amazed at how much there was to see and do. This year there is a full programme of chefs and food writers on the Wot’s Cooking Stage and the Graeme Kidd Stage. There is the Fire Kitchen Stage, the Talks and Tastings, the Aardark Festival Bookshop talks, coffee masterclasses, Slow Food Taste Workshops, chocolate tastings and so much more.
If you would like to see me, and please, do come along and say hello, I will be in the Bake In Time tent in the Outer Bailey. I will be doing my thing on the Friday (12.30-1.30pm and 3.15-4.00pm), Saturday (12.30-1.30 and 3.15-4.00) and Sunday (12.30-1.30). I am in a tent with Howard Middleton, Sandy Docherty and Val Stones, all from the Great British Bake Off, and then me. I will be trying to fill Rob Swift’s boots for the three lunch time sessions (get yourselves to his bread stall, Bread2Bake, to stock up), so do come along and give me a wave.
