Festivals For Foodies

    Festivals aren’t just about the music nowadays, most of them are embracing awesome food offerings. It’s what the people want!

    Summer is in full swing, and whatever the weather we will don the appropriate foot-ware, shorts and glitter and we will go fourth and join in on the festival antics. But long gone are the days of dodgy burger vans parked up on the edge of a fairground, now we have whole festivals dedicated to food, even chefs tables pitch up and cook in the most unforgivable and down right alien environments, but that's the whole fun of it.
