Real Food Festival - A Celebration of Extraordinary Food

If you love food like me this is the right place to be. 
Real Food is all about great tasting, sustainably and ethically produced food. I attended this Festival on May 7th at London's Earls Court where I discovered over 400 carefully selected food and drink producers showcasing the very best The British Isles has to offer. 
From artisan breads and cheeses, slow reared meat direct from the farm, a mountain of fresh seasonal fruits and vegetables, sustainably caught fish and a host of other stalls selling cakes, charcuterie, preserves and fine wines, spirits and beers to drink.

Below are some of the produce my iPhone captured:

Italian Pecorino mmm

More cheese...

Millions of marmalades 

Ouse Valley Foods - Jellies
They are renowned for their crystal clear jellies with their magically suspended produce in their brightly coloured natural set.

Laverstock Park Farm had some live Buffalo and I tried their buffalo mozzarella -
They produced the first serious buffalo mozzarella to be made in the UK and it is now available in this unpasteurised version. - and ice cream made with Buffalo milk.

Union Roasted coffees are created with incredible attention to detail.
Beans are hand-roasted in small batches to develop flavourful coffee with rich irresistible aromas.Thanks to Ari & Tom for the great coffee ;)

The Polish Deli -London 
Traditional Homemade Pastries - 


Tregothnan has been home to the Boscawen family since 1335. The Estate, in Kent and Cornwall, is internationally known for producing the only tea grown in England. 

Take a quick look at the video where Jonathon Jones talks about Tregothnan teas and how to make a real cup of tea

Grilled Sausages...

Prosperity Brownies -

They contain no ‘naughty Es and Ps’ or artificial colouring and as such, are perceived as an exquisite chocolate brownie. 

See a quick video where Paul Hatcher explains talks about these amazing brownies....
