Birmingham Independent Food Fair

Way back in September, Edd and I headed to Birmingham's Millennium Point for the Birmingham Independent Food Fair. This was a celebration of food and drink in Birmingham. So many new businesses have popped up in the past few years, it's a great time to be in the city!

Businesses included:

*Le Truc French Restaurant
*Kneals Chocolates- these are amazing amazing amazing!!
*All Greek Deli
*Peel and Stone Bakery
*6/8 Kafe
*UCB Training restaurant (I'm going there tonight!)
*Langley's Gin
*Bodega

Those are the ones I remember off the top of my head- clearly these are the ones which made an impact!

An early bird ticket was about five pounds. This got you a card which entitled you to samples from each place. You could also buy larger items. Some places were more generous than others of course!

From reading reviews in various places, I know some people were annoyed that members of the general public could get in and buy items. This meant that the stalls ran out of food fairly quickly. I can see why the organisers would think 'the more the merrier' but it wasn't that great for those people who had paid to get in. You also spent a great deal of time queuing. I believe this was the first time they had run the event on this scale so I am sure they will have ironed out the creases by next time.
