Two sleeps to go to Oxford Foodies Festival, our lovely Hazel has been over this afternoon planning the Kids Masterclass she's running on Sunday, very excited.
I'm in the final stages of planning my dems with Castillero del Diablo each day and my own dem on Sunday at 5pm which will be along the lines of an Easy Summer Supper for Friends, so tastes of summer and fruit and veg in season, come along and enjoy the banter and delicious food.
I love this food festival in particular as the standard of food is so high, amazing chefs from local Oxford restaurants all have stalls selling their own delicious versions of their restaurant food, champagne bars (I particularly like these), exquisite chocolatiers usually too, food for the serious foodie. Then there's the chefs, Daniel Galmiche from The Vineyard at Stockross, excellent wedding anniversary supper there a few years ago when we escaped from a seriously bad 'health spa' close by, Gary Jones from Le Manoir aux Quatre Saisons, various lunches for birthdays and anniversaries as we are close enough for a quick taxi home and the amazingly wonderful Katie and Giancarlo Caldesi too, to transport you to Italy from our typical English summer.
If you like food, you must come, it's a fab day out.
