Flavour Fest – chillis, rain and foccacia
So Flavour Fest has come and gone for another year. Most of the feed back I have heard has been largely positive.
I could do a long and in-depth analysis here, but who wants to read that? I enjoyed every single stand that I visited (Manna from Devon’s foccacia) deserves a special mention.
So just a few choice comments and tweets from other people will suffice. It is more about what other people thought.
Dartmoor Chilli Farm really sat on the fence. It was Kay and Phil Palmer’s debut at a food festival and I think they enjoyed it. Tweets like “thank you very much for brilliant show. It’s the best market we’ve ever done. Will definitely do next year again!” are a subtle hint.
They also told me that they enjoyed “amazing” lemonade from Sanford Cider when they weren’t selling chillies.
Likewise the good people at Devonshire Tea were so busy it even stopped Gavin from Tweeting. Something I thought he did even in his sleep. Not only was it good sales-wise for stall-holders on the day, it was also good for those looking to pick up business.
One last thought from a member of the public, who visited. Constructive and informative.
“Yes I thought it was great. One thing that stood out was the amazing friendliness of all the stall holders – even in Sundays heat.
“I took my Dutch cousin because I wanted her to experience tasting some local foods. She loved it all, and filled her bag with chutney, Devonshire tea, and other goodies.
“The chefs kitchen worked well-although some more seating would have encouraged us to stay longer.
“Didier from Chloes restaurant was hilarious!”
See you next year.
