For the past 3 years my interest in food has grown immensely and when I received tickets for the show as a birthday present I was really excited at the prospect of an interesting, educational and inspiring day out. 8

Meringues to die for!
Flapjacks of all varieties.
My favourite had rocky road topping.
Sponge cakes. Sticky toffee sponge was delicious.

Various flavours of focaccia

Spiralised vegetables and fruit, wow!! A very entertaining German was demonstrating how to transform vegetables.. I must confess to buying a spiraliser.

As we walked round I spotted tv chef Phil Vickery doing a demonstration so we stopped to watch.
It was so interesting to listen to stories of his travels and listen to the food knowledge he shared.

At 4pm we headed to the main theatre to be entertained and inspired by another tv chef, James Martin. In the space of half hour he treated us to a show producing 4 dishes, food knowledge and rather witty banter!

I was rather intrigued at how much butter James used in all his dishes. Definitely not healthy eating but a great show.

Our tickets also included entry into Gardeners World so we spent our last hour walking around the flower displays. Below are a selection of my favourites.
