BBC Good Food Show Winter (Part 2)

I had such a fantastic experience at the BBC Good Food Show, I could not possible share my highlights in one blog post. The winter show, I attended the show on Press Day, many thanks to Katy who organised the get together with the other bloggers. Many I knew via Twitter but in the press room there was: FreyaCob, Full to the Brum, The Foodie Couple, Munchies and Munchkins,  Jo's Kitchen and Helena Cookman. I also had a quick chat with fellow bloggers Carmelo Sereno and Julie from Angelina Cupcake who were busy on Julie's stall and had a quick chat with The Ginger Warrior.
The group of bloggers had the opportunity to go back stage meet & have a chat none other than Si and Dave of the Hairy Bikers.  We were even ask them a couple of questions, I bravely asked them whether they had any plans to have a similar series of their Mississippi road tour. I also had the opportunity to have excellent seats to watch the charismatic James Martin demonstration where he prepared the very healthy (writes with a smile :-) ) looking monkey bread alongside a mackerel and potato dish.


I also enjoyed visiting several stores, I hope you enjoy my collage of my favourite stalls from this wonderful show.

The Baking Housewife - Everyone knows I'm a huge fan of Caribbean food so was excited to discover this stall and meet the lovely person behind The Baking Housewife who specialises in artisan Caribeean fruit cakes, alongside marmalades and sorrel. I had to purchase the sorrel with rum which was heavenly divine.


Tan Rosie  - Another Caribbean stall headed by mother and daughter duo. They sold a range of Caribbean spices, Sauces, fudge, plantain chips and even a cookery book. I stocked up on plantain chips and chilli fudge.



Simply Vintage - specialises as the site says, everything vintage. I discovered this at the summer show, think rustic and beautiful cake knives, delicate tea sets and vintage milk bottles. These products are stunningly beautiful and their items are certainly welcome in my home.



5 Dimensions - asked the bloggers to say ola, was impressed by the flavour combinations such as the intriguing basil and lime.


Angelina Cupcake a fellow official blogger had her own stall this year selling her amazing cupcakes. Although I was trying to be relatively good, I had to purchase some oreo cupcakes.



Sponge Cakes 
As discussed in my part 1 review I absolutely adored this stall.



Delicious Alchemy 
As stated in my part 1 review I loved this stall.



Disclaimer:  I received a press pass to attend the Good Food Show, I was not obliged to write a positive review and as always my opinion is my own.
