Source Trade Show 2017
I like odd foods so had a few crispy insects, eaten after the count of five with Michelle, manageress of Chococo Exeter - I quite enjoyed them - it's the future don't you know. Grown nearby in Cornwall too by Cornish Edible Insects!
Great to see Tony of Ebb Tides again, a local seaweed producer with his range of seaweed grinders - amazing taste and a great and knowledgeable guy. Read a Q&A over on Eating Exeter.
A difficult one this; had a yummy pony sausage (no Findis in sight) from Dartmoor Conservation Meats and want to cover this in a positive way in a separate blog. This is a sustainable and ethical food source.
Powderkeg Beer with their tasty beers that always makes me smile. Sheppy's Cider and Norcotts Cider both producing very high quality cider and both offering something different.
Any fans of Dragons Den will remember the recent episode featuring Watmuff and Beckett, the Frome based soup and risotto guys who won the backing of Nick Jenkins. I spoke to the guys and tasted the goods and got some to take home from their truck stop. They really do have a tasty product and I hope to do quickie questions with them soon.
I could carry on writing and if I have missed anyone I'm sorry but your time will come.
What a great show 2017 was and I really do wish everyone I met a great year but with all the passion you all have for what you do it's going to be a great food year.
