Cottingham Food & Drink Festival 2015

I was looking forward to this years Festival because I’ve just taken delivery of a Panasonic Lumix GX8 which I intend to use on holiday, rather than take the 5D and backpack. So for it’s first outing, what better than a whizz around Cottingham and be fed and watered at the same time.

There were a good amount of exhibitors but I went in the morning as opposed to the afternoon last year and so it didn’t feel as busy as I thought it was going to be. Still – lots of goodies on show. The first port of call was to my old mate Tony Patrick ( from whom Sue bought a decent sized selection of macaroons – jolly nice too.

Lots of sweet and savoury stuff and great drinks, especially at the Atom Beer Company. I didn’t stop to watch the cooking demonstrations in the main marquee, the stalls were too inviting, maybe next year.

Anyway, chocolate, pies, macaroons, Sardinian delicacies and beer in hand we went home for lunch and literally recharge the batteries – here are a few images :-
