My hat is firmly tipped in the direction of the wonderful Bude for Food crew, what an incredible first festival!
The sun shone, the chefs and local artisan food producers did their thing and the foodies and the party goers of the south west rocked up.
Happy mackerel moments with Martin Dorey… Sampling, sampling, and oh well go on then, (be rude not to) some more sampling and lazing in the sunshine on the grass with friends, cider in hand, deliberating Paella or Thai, were a few of my best bits… Plus of course, seeing the logo I designed for Bude for Food in situ, and seeing the incredibly proud faces of the Bude for Food crew…
Late Sunday afternoon the Marquee doors closed on Bude for Food 2014 leaving the festival foodies to trek home with full tums, bags full of delicious treats, and a warm fuzzy feeling, and the crew with the task of packing it all away.
A mahoosive round of mighty cheers to everybody who made it happen, it really was a wonderful weekend, you’ve set yourself a very high bench mark for 2015.
