Northampton Winter Food Festival

Second stop on the November rollercoaster has been the Northampton Winter Food Festival. It’s the first Winter Food Festival they’ve held in Northampton, and was at the County Cricket Ground. I was lucky to have an indoor pitch, as the weather was very cold, and I really hadn’t been looking forward to being in an outdoor marquee. We had a good weekend with plenty of people at the event, and I discovered some new spirits and liqueurs ready for January’s R&D sessions!

I was also gifted a Fatale Chilli. Mr D grows a variety of chillies each year, and always likes discovering new varieties. Given its name, I’m a little trepidatious. I like my food spicy, but I do have a limit ….

Packing up was much less stressful than last week and I was away by 5.30. Much more civilised to be home before 8pm. Even more so when Mr D had a goulash bubbling away on the hob awaiting my return. Happy girl!

Choctails® was founded by husband and wife team Simon and Hilary Delamare. Simon's suggestion of putting cocktail flavours into chocolate took Hilary's chocolate-making hobby to new heights, until in May 2012, the decision was made to turn the hobby into a full time business. The domestic kitchen became a production factory by day, and the dining room was given up to become a place where hand-made chocolate is crafted
