|Food festival goodies|
After going to "just have a look" at the different stalls, we carried home some lovely rye bread, soda bread, goats cheese, nettle cheese, honey, pork pies and honey lip balm as well as a couple of bottles of local ale and some stunning Persian food. Now, if you have never tried Persian cuisine, I shall urge you to do so at the next opportunity! It is quite unlike anything I have ever tasted before and utterly delicious! The dishes we took home were Ash E Reshteh (a thick vegetarian soup with noodles) and Fesenjaan (a meat stew made with pomegranate). The latter is in the freezer ready to brighten up another day but we had the soup for our lunch - oh wow! And we still have all the other goodies to tuck into... :-)
A bunch of people passionate about their local produce - a truly delightful way to spend the morning! We shall definitely look out for more local markets!
