Bolton Food and Drink Festival 2012 - Pictures

I've had such a fabulous time over the past couple of days! I've eaten some delicious food, had a laugh with friends old and new and even met some of my heroes. This year's Bolton Food and Drink Festival has excelled itself. Everyone around us seemed to be in wonder of something utterly fantastic; including a giant halibut called Hal, twirly potatoes on sticks, a giant inflatable lobster, celebrity chefs and lots of free titbits. The range of food and entertainment just gets stronger every year, so before I go any further I would like to give the organisers a huge pat on the back!

Don't fret if you feel like you have missed out, as the festival continues for another two days! Yipee! We don't do things in half measures here in Bolton. There are no one day food events here! So, as if you needed any more encouragement, here are some of the spectacles that I snapped over the last two days whilst out and about...

One of the loveliest couples you will ever meet! Jackie was a finalist on Masterchef in 2011 and makes Asian inspired street food under the name of The Hungry Gecko. Her food is bloody marvellous! I had her 'Little bit of Everything' tasting platter and a mango lassi. This was so good that it has been mentally added to my 'what could you just have...?' list! I went on Friday and then took my husband back on Saturday so he could try it too. Agreed. Jackie, you rule.
