BBC Good Food Show London 2016



 

 


 

 


I was extremely lucky to get the opportunity to head to London last weekend for the BBC Good Food Show. Since a young age I have always been a lover of food, whether it be eating it or making it, and for many years I've wanted to go to the Good Food Show. So for me this was actually one of the best opportunities blogging has brought me so far. If you haven't been to one of the Good Food Shows I would definitely recommend heading along to one, they make a great day out or a weekend away with friends. I personally loved that it was reasonably close to Christmas as I got quite a few gift ideas from it aswell as thoroughly enjoying myself.

So over the weekend I had the chance to watch Paul Hollywood cook live, which was actually hilarious. Not only did I find out he had a great sense of humour but up close he's actually abit of a silver fox too. I also got to take part in a cocktail master class with Mews who run a stunning cocktail bar in Mayfair, and they showed us how to knock up a beautiful Espresso Martini and a sophisticated Gin Fizz. I then also took part in a wine and chocolate tasting session ran by Tom Kerridge and Lindt, two of my favourite thing. And I am now partial to a nice red wine, previously I felt like they all tasted like vinegar.. Considering I was at the show for three days I actually think there is a small possibility that I missed a couple of things out, when walking into Olympia it's a massive shock to see how many businesses there are to chat too, aswell as all the super theatre shows and tasting experiences.

Instead of giving you a step to step guide of what I did while I was there, I thought I would share with you the brands that stood out to me the most. At least that way if your heading to a Good Food Show you know what to look out for, or it may give you a few ideas for Christmas Gifts.
I will also share with you my purchase, there's only a few because there was only so much I could carry. But I do plan on putting a few online orders through over the coming weeks.



 

 

Manilife make the yummiest peanut butter I've tried! The crunch one was up there with one of my favourites! Perfectly suited with sweet apple. This is definitely something I will be ordering and keeping hidden from everyone else. It also helped that the guys promoting the business were extremely funny and had fantastic people skills.

 

 

I loved these mini vino wines. They are the perfect size for picnics, festivals or train journeys, not only that but they are a really good tasting wine aswell. And 3 for £5 I found to be a very reasonable price. The same company also made the Chocolate drop mulled wine, I've brought a couple of bottles of this home. I love mulled wine, even though I'm not normally a red wine fan. The added chocolate in this makes such a delicious beverage, I can't wait to heat some up and put up the Christmas tree. It's definitely my Christmas tipple this year.


 


If you follow my Instagram or twitter you will already know I am obsessed with everything coffee related. This stall attracted me instantly, Press'd is a little handbag size squeeze bottle filled with concentrated coffee. You add the concentrated coffee to hot water for a quick easy coffee on the go. I think this is perfect for someone with a busy lifestyle and a love for coffee just like myself. And much cheaper and quicker than going to the local coffee shop. These retail at £2.50, less than the cost of one takeaway coffee.


 

 

Who doesn't love Joe&Sephs? These guys have come up with every possible flavouring for popcorn, including cheese on toast, marmite and gin & tonic. I'm very lucky to currently be working on a collaboration with Joe&Sephs as part of Blogmas, I can't wait to share my festive recipe with you all. As by now you'll probably know you can pick up Joe&Sephs popcorn and sauce from many stores including Fenwicks & Sainsburys. Keep checking in for the Joe&Seph post in December.

 

Nothing But are a very modern take on healthy snacks. These include all natural ingredients, that are freeze dried to create super scrummy healthy snacks! I think these show how great science and food can be when mixed together. What looks like coloured cardboard actually tastes very similar to what's grown in your garden, I was particularly surprised at how great the beetroot chips tastes. It does show that healthy food can also taste good, which doesn't happen very often. 
These can be purchased from Holland & Barrett or Amazon.


 

Who doesn't? I certainly do love Vodka. These vodkas are actually amazing! That good that the salted caramel one came home with me in my suitcase. It tasted almost like sticky toffee pudding in a drink. Also the blackcurrant flavoured one tasted like an adult ribena. I can see these flavoured vodkas being an absolute hit at house parties, a great way to make drinking games more enjoyable. 


 

 

Last but definitely not least, Jim Jams! Their hazelnut chocolate spread tastes so scrummy, and it's so much healthier for you than other brands on the market. I can't wait to incorporate this into a few recipes for you guys to try. To think this jar includes only 6 teaspoons of sugar unlike some that contain over 50, no wonder people are unhealthy these days. It's about time we all started looking for the healthier alternatives.


So these are just a few of the products that I really loved over the weekend. I didn't get a photo of it but I would also like to share that ALDI's prosecco for £7.49 is particularly nice for the price, well worth stocking up on for over Christmas.
I really hope that this post has shown you a little insight to what the BBC Good Food Show has to offer, if you've ever thought about going. Do it! 

Let me know if your heading to a Good Food Show soon, or have you purchased any of the above?
