At the end of May we went to the Derbyshire Food and Drink Fair at Hardwick Hall.
For a food and drink enthusiast like me it was a great day out. There were food suppliers from all over the county and slightly further afield too. I have always been an enthusiast of British food and especially my Derbyshire heritage and the fair did us justice without a doubt.
Also, at £3.50. the entrance fee was very sensible and fixed to draw people in, not make them think twice about it. Sensational !!
These brave folks were enticing us to Beryl’s Honey stall.
This person didn’t look like his name was Beryl … “well not before six o’clock” he said.
There were zillions of cupcakes on sale – YUM !!
There were delicious pies, pudding and sausages galore.
Including someone selling the traditional spotted dick. YUM again !!
For lunch we had a very tasty ostrich burger with Jack Daniels onions. DOUBLE YUM !!
There was also an excellent craft tent with handbags, jewellery, furniture, paintings, candles, pottery, clocks and wooden items.
The maker of our new cheese board is here wrapping it for us.
There were several farm shops displaying their produce. Some I had never come across before so it’s good to know they exist.
There was so much good food on sale it was hard to resist.
Our purchases: a beautiful English elm cheese board, a citronella candle, a jar of Beryl’s borage honey, a pack of lardons and an egg box.
We will definitely go again next year.
