BBC Good Food Show Round-Up Summer 2015

I always enjoy going to the BBC Good Food Show, it’s fun to discover new producers, chat to friendly faces of those I’ve met before and find out all about new and exciting products. By the time I’ve been and got round to writing this post, the show is usually over but its still good to know all about some of the brilliant people and brands I’ve discovered – it’s likely a lot of them will be there over again in 6 months time at the Winter Show – and this will come round pretty damn fast given this year seems to be flying by!

This year I really enjoyed watching the brilliant Michael Caines on the Stoves UK stage and also visiting the Bull Ring markets stage with some local chefs cooking up a storm with produce all from the Birmingham markets. For lunch I ate a gigantic burger from The Naked Sausage. An in amongst all this fellow blogger Laura and I did a lot of walking, talking and sampling! Here’s a snapshot of what we saw and what we tried.
