Foodie Festival at Tatton Park

Last week I’ve been invited to the Foodie Festival at Tatton Park. I was delighted to attend it for the first time. My husband and I visited the Foodie Festival on Saturday and it was packed, there were so many people and lots of them with dogs, it was really nice.

After we’ve entered, we went to find the Cake and Bake Theatre, so we’d know when we have to get there for the cooking shows. We’ve decided which one we want to see and we had a look around the stalls before going back to see Jane Devonshire.

Christmas Bake Off with Holland & Barrett #HBBakeOff

I was so happy when I got the invitation for Christmas Bake Off. It was a really special event organized by Holland & Barrett. I had the chance to meet Ugne from Great British Bake Off, I baked a cake, we had lunch and cakes and lots and lots of fun. It was amazing.

The event was at Cactus Kitchen, the cookery school designed by Michel Roux Jr. There were a few hiccups for me to get there as the train had 10 minutes delay and at the tube station was so crowded it took ages to put a few pounds on my Oyster. But I got there in time, after a short jogging from the tube, excited to start the day.

We presented ourselves, telling the story of our blogs and talking a short while about our culinary background and preferences. I mentioned I baked along the Bake Off, of course. Most of the day I chatted with Katie and Carly. I hope I’ll meet them again.

Then we head up to the kitchen. It looked lovely, so light and inviting. Everybody took out their phones and/or cameras and we all started to photograph the kitchen, the workstation, the decor. This is what happens at a blogger event, we bloggers like to take pictures of everything.
