So it's already been a year since my first experience as a food judge. Last year I was invited to judge the Gluten Free category at the World Bread Awards. An interesting category to say the least, with the understanding of coeliac's disease growing and being talked about, it is starting to become more inventive. Not just the traditional white loaf, but multigrain, sourdough, tortillas...a whole range. Great for all coeliac's.. and I must say this years entries looked strong!
Bank holiday weekend played host to Foodies in Oxford and one that will be remembered for many reasons, a) being the rain! Yes our first rainy Foodies of the year.. I know it was Bank Holiday so traditionally damp, but we can always hope for a dry weekend right?!
b) because it was the last one of the summer season, so a last reunion with my foodie family for a while. Which actually is quite a sad thought- you honestly will not know how much fun we have doing these shows for
