Leeds Food Festival 2014 – #LeedsFoodFest

Last Friday I went to Leeds Food Festival. It was the first time I’ve been so I wasn’t sure what to expect. It’s a mixture of food/drink stalls as well as places you can eat. 
 
I know I know, I take a million photos. I hope you’re happy about this situation. Because I’m not. I get torn between wanting to share ALL the photos and wanting to show just a selection then don’t know what to do for the best. Soz.
 
There were loads of lovely stalls full of homemade, handcrafted and local products. The drinks weren’t bad either. There was a delicious chocolate red wine we tried, but at £12 a pop, I decided not to buy it!
 
We bought £8 of olives. The silly man selling them kept saying they would last 6 months in the fridge. I doubt they will last 6 days in ours, Lilly and I are OLIVE MAD. GIVE ME THE OLIVES. ALL OF THEM.
 
I bought three lovely jars of coffee from Jaccscoffee, a hazelnut, Ameretto and cinnamon flavoured one.


We had some oysters which were okay. I have tried them before. To be honest they weren’t okay. I hate them and wanted to spit it out. It was like putting gunky, dirty, salty sea water in my mouth and being forced to swallow due to social etiquette. Blah. 
 
I opted for a Thai prawn curry for lunch, while Lilly and Anne-Marie went to the burger. 
 
Check out the cupcakes with the marshmallows. Oh my lord, that all looked amazing. I asked the man if they had a website as I wanted to link it to here, or where we could get them from but he said his wife just did them for events like that and they didn’t have a website or anything. It’s a pity because everything looked lovely!
 
Less babble more pictures:

After we were done at Leeds Food Festival, we went to revolutions for a few drinks. I’ve not been for ages and was really impressed with how the decor has changed! It looks fun, very vintage, light and airy. 

 
We had to get back to walk the dogs, so decided to nip to Tesco and get some wine and take the dogs to the nearby park. I took photos, of course =) 
 
Let’s all admire the baby bump. He is called Flip =)
