I had a fab time, meeting loads of lovely people, learning about new products and trying oodles of delicious samples and I even took in a sheep-shearing show. I even bumped into Toby Young although I've never really been sure about him since Eating With the Enemy.
The Real Food Festival 2009 is being held over the weekend of 8-10 May at Earls Court. As well as lots to eat, drink and buy, there'll be another Sheep Show and a Chef's Theatre and Cookery School starring Thomasina Miers (Masterchef Winner 2005), Raymond Blanc, Tom Parker-Bowles, Ollie Rowe and Geeti Singh.
Real Food Festival Tickets cost £14.90, but you can get 25% off if you use any of these discount codes here: DEL09, DEL029 or RFFDM2
I've just got my tickets for this year and I strongly urge you to do the same.
In the meantime, here are some of the pictures I took at last year's Real Food Festival:
Hot chocolate at l'Artisan du Chocolat
I love oysters!
The oyster man Richard Haward himself
Tyrrells Naked Chips are the best
Sausages, snags, bangers or sangers - it's all good
