Food, Glorious Food

At Great Dorset Steam Fair last week, as well as all the steam engines and entertainment, there was a huge variety of food stalls and outlets all across the site and a delicious food hall. We made it over to the food hall almost every day just for all the free samples of sausages, jam, fudge, cheese, crackers, and bread - they even had duck burgers and duck dogs!

It was a shame to have to come home and eat "normally" again!

    1. They were huge slabs of cake - I had a piece of lemon drizzle cake and it was a job to finish it all! (although somehow I managed...) :-) xx

    1. The orange juice was lovely, proper fresh stuff and just what we needed in the middle of a hot day :-) x

  4. Love those cake stalls and I'm totally stealing their cake signs on lollipop sticks idea for the PTA cake table.

    The food looks incredible, yet another reason that I need to go to a steam fair! BTW, how were the duck burgers/dogs? Did you have a sample?

    1. I know, the sticks are such a fab (and easy) idea!
      We did have a sample of duck sausages - they had an unusual flavour but were really tasty (Andrew kept joking that it was sacrilege to eat duck though!) :-) The company was called Somerset Ducks if you ever spot them about :-) x

Thank you very much for all your lovely comments; I do have every intention of replying but sometimes life with a baby gets in the way...
