I remember when food festivals, though very tempting, could be a really difficult place if you have an intolerance or dietary restriction. All these gorgeous smells and tasters in one place…yet though the samples of hot sauce may not have gluten, what about the crisps used to dip into it? And we all remember signs like these…
I particularly like ‘and others’. Couldn’t be bothered to list all 14, huh??!
But now, businesses and food festivals alike are starting to realise the market they’re missing out on.
For the last year, we’ve only visited festivals and events that have a free from focus, such as the Free From Festival (we are so excited for that one in May!!!!). But when the Eat & Drink Festival rocked up at Olympia, just down the road from us, we had to go check it out and see if food festivals were starting to see the light…
Pleased to see that things are improving!! There are only three days left of the Eat & Drink Festival so if you want to go, don’t miss out. But not to worry – The Green Grill and the Louisiana Chilli Shack menus will soon be on the Eat Safe app so you can find them and try them out.
Let us know what you think if you do go!
Lots of love,
The Eat Safe Team
