Despite the rain, last Sunday proved to be a popular day for this year’s Bristol Wine & Food Fair, with a huge number of people flocking to Bristol’s Harbourside to enjoy the end of a three day celebration of fine wine and good food.

In addition to a variety of local and national companies selling their wares (and offering the obligatory tastings…), the weekend featured an international dining area, Bristol’s Young Chef 2010 competition, live music, wine and food matching lectures and the latest installment of Bristol’s Secret Service Supper Club.

Unfortunately we didn’t manage to make it to any of the events in the lecture theatre, but we enjoyed a busy day of catching up with foodies we already knew, discovering suppliers and producers we’d never heard of, tasting lots of amazing foods and drinks, and (as our bank balances are showing…) leaving the Fair with bulging bags full of purchases.

Highlights for us included:

  • Some fantastic cocktails (blackcurrant vodka and apple juice, and cider brandy with apple juice) from The Orchard Pig
  • The BBQ poussin cooked up by Simon at Papadeli
  • A delicious lamb kofta salad box from the kofta bar run by The Real Olive Company
  • Tastings of a Smokey Margarita, created using Lahloo Smokey in conjunction with The Rummer
  • The discovery of some seriously good ice creams from Mendip Moments (our favourites were Strawberries and Clotted Cream, and Clotted Cream with Honeycomb)
  • And finally, a caffeine boost from Extract Coffee Roasters, without whom I doubt I’d have managed over four hours at the fair…

Many thanks to Bristol Event Management, the event supporters, and the exhibitors for a fantastic weekend…and roll on the next Harbourside food fest in a week’s time… 😉
