Making the most of our Summer!

Thursday, 2 July 2015

If you are anything like me and your skin melts the instant the sun touches you, it can be quite difficult to enjoy yourself when everyone wants to be lying in their back gardens getting bronzed. A few Years ago I discovered the perfect way to tempt people inside while still having fun. 

Have you ever tried visiting a Foodies Festival? We went to the Llangollen Food & Drink Festival and had a fabulous time. With lots of stalls to look around, the sun lovers are happy while the more sensitive skinned of us can pop into the shade when required. This year it is back for the 18th time on Saturday October 17th and Sunday the 18th.

Did you know that Foodies Festival is on at Alexandra Palace this Friday, Saturday and Sunday. Celebrating its 10th anniversary with Michelin-star and celebrity chefs including Aldo Zilli – TV Chef and Master Chef finalists Saira Hamilton and Jackie Kearney

There will also be new food and drink tasting theatres where local experts will tempt you with tasty food while teaching you new skills like Oyster Shucking, Bee Keeping and Foraging.

If that isn't enough, how about some Summer cooking inspiration from the Aga Rangemaster Chefs, head to the theatre and watch them cooking their favourite dishes from their Summer menus. You’re guaranteed to find something new and delicious to try. I was inspired me to try new ingredients and create some lovely food at home.



Why not make a Weekend of it and stay at the fantastic Holiday Inn London Brent Cross, which is only 22 minutes away by car. 


Just £99 for a spacious double room which has a lounge area and a sofa that can be used as a sofabed, high speed internet and keep refreshed in this heatwave with air conditioning and quench your thirst with their complimentary tea and coffee. When you get back from the food festival you can relax in front of a movie or satellite channels on the TV, bliss!
