August Bank Holiday Burgers & Wimbledon Food Festival
A bank holiday in the UK always calls for a BBQ and this August it was all about the burgers. This was my super burger from last weekend and it was packed with a Castello blue cheese square, homegrown lettuce, tomatoes (little as I ran out of big ones), chillies and a generous helping of tomato ketchup and mustard. It was brilliant and I would definitely recommend these flavours for a burger. The Castello cheese squares are so tasty and easy to use. They were definitely a hit at the BBQ.
Wimbledon Park Food Festival
There were so much food and it was a great event. It was a bit different to how I thought it would be. There was plenty of stalls selling food to enjoy there but not many selling things you could buy and take home. I was looking forward to buying some artisan bread, cheese and hopefully some sausages but sadly only came away with marshmallows. If I had known it was more of a festival where you eat everything there I would have turned up more hungry.
The smell of the food was incredible. There was pizzas, gourmet chips, pies, ice lollies, ice cream sandwiches, Spanish pulled pork and so much more. I wish I could have tried a sample from every stall there.
The Poptata chips were incredible. Easily the best chips I’ve ever had. They were made right in front of us, were crispy on the outside, fluffy in the middle and not at all greasy. They were however incredibly hot! Trying to hold them in their paper holder wasn’t very easy. Luckily we tucked in very quickly and that helped. They had a mix of dried herbs along with salt and pepper for a delicious yet delicate flavour.
Just a few of the weirder items available at the food fesitval. Really wish I had tried buffalo!
Well it was a bank holiday! Mojitos in the afternoon are totally allowed.
Tea is one of life’s essentials and visiting Morgan’s Brew Tea Company was an absolute treat. Their range was huge and the interesting flavours I’d never heard of were plentiful. The toffee tea smelled incredible. I *may* have ordered some.
What caught my eye and so many of the visitors was this very impressive marshmallow tower from Marshmallow Heaven who came up from Kent. Their flavours were many and samples flowing to tempt you. I bought the chocolate and nut, lemon meringue pie (with actually meringue on top) and peanut butter. They were all so good. I would thoroughly recommend.
A wonderful bank holiday.
I can’t believe it’s September already.
