15th August 2014
Amazingly won some tickets to the Battersea Foodies Festival courtesy of the Evening Standard so visited on Friday as bound to be the quietest day. Also the changeable weather meant it was not only easy to see the stalls and get samples but also easy to get spaces in the speaker tents. First we learnt to decorate a cake Burlesque Baking style and then got to eat it, then we tasted four champagnes. Some crazy people at our table decided they weren’t too keen and tipped theirs away! Shocking behaviour.
Had some great samples of different foods, bought some gourmet sausage rolls and a giant scotch egg, had some tapas and brownie then back in the tent for Rioja tasting. Finally got a great deal on chorizo and salami, as I was deciding which one to buy the vendor offered one of each for a tenner, bargain!
Only rained on for about 5 minutes and the day was mainly sun, fabulous!
Baby friendly info:
Battersea Park station has many steps and is not accessible for a pushchair. There are many buses that service the park.
Battersea Park is fully pushchair accessible
The Foodies Festival is on tarmac so no issues with muddy, waterlogged grass. There are changing facilities in the disabled portaloo. The speakers tents all have space for pushchairs at the edges.
