I was fortunate enough to win a pass to the Good Food and Wine Show from Vanessa at 26 Years and Counting.
Now, not being a foodie but a big appreciator of food (and the occasional wine) in general, I was excited to rock up to the Convention Centre and have a poke about.
What I found was a crowd eager to sample some quality wares and a lot of stallholders, with businessness small and large ready to please them.
The big draws, are of course the cheese (yummo) and the wine (a little early in the day for me) but there was a grand array of other goods - chocolate, fudges, preserves, dukkah... you name it!
I met up with Vanessa who was watching a chef demonstration and we wandered around together. After a while I learnt to be shameless about asking to try samples!
It was a great way to spend a few hours, and I enjoyed looking at local producer's stalls as well as the bigger brands.
Do you go to food and wine shows? What's your favorite bit - the free samples or the chance to talk to the brands?
