Week-End Pictures: Fresh & Fantastic Aldeburgh Food Festival

At the week-end, I attended the sixth Aldeburgh Food and Drink Festival. I was very impressed by the extraordinary abundance of local products. Compared to the last Hampton Court (London) Food Festival which offered little with long queues and manyer grumpy faces (probably due to the high prices), this festival had a party atmosphere.

It was packed but cheerful and dynamic, it appeared extremely well organised. Local producers were so enthusiastic that I could have bought everything. The celebration run over two weeks with the week-end events in Snape Maltings.

I came back with a week supply of fresh vegetables and flour, to try, from an independent local miller which I need to check out the state of play with millers and flour. My friend at the Wye bakery will be able to help me out with this research, so watch this space. 

I have got  one last plea: Please, do ask me again next year.

Don't know Suffolk at all, but I've heard Aldeburgh is a great place to stay - especially if you time it for the food fest by the sound of it :)

Hi there,

For having been to a couple of places along the coast. So far I found Aldeburgh the best base. The coast self is fantastic and the food fest was honestly absolutely brilliant.
Thanks for your comment
