It's not long now until the BBC Good Food Show in Glasgow. Held at the SECC between the 6 and 8 November, tickets are going like hot cakes.
Have you entered my giveaway yet to win a pair of tickets to the event? The tickets are also good for the London and Birmingham show this year. Hurry the competition ends soon!
But to whet your whistle for the Scottish event, here are just a few of the exhibitors going to the event that I am personally looking forward to visiting.
Coco - Chocolatier
Coco is an artisan Edinburgh based chocolatier. They use ethically sourced, organic chocolate to create their bars which come in an array of flavours. I am particularly looking forward to trying a Haggis Spice Chocolate bar, oh and the Gin and Tonic one too!
As the popularity of gin increases it only makes sense that the accompanying tonic should get the premium treatment as well. Fever-Tree make, in my opinion, the best tasting tonics to go with your gin. As they say, if three-quarters of your G&T is the tonic, surely it should be the best. I'll be picking up some of their 7 varieties when I'm there.
Maw Broon's Home and Kitchen
For anyone, like me, who grew up reading The Broons every Sunday and waiting for the annual every other year, Maw Broon's Kitchen is not to be missed. There will be homewares, cookware and appliances all for sale under the name of Maw Broon. This will be a true chance to wallow in nostalgia!
Gourmet popcorn, air popped which is the healthiest method, all made in Scotland. Flavours include peanut butter, sea salted caramel and sweet ginger. Try holding me back!!
I visited the Collective stand last year and enjoyed it so much, I will be back for more. The Collective make gourmet yoghurt. I am not a huge fan of yoghurt normally, but the flavours they sell are out of this world (gingerbread, coconut and lime anyone?) and the yoghurt tastes so creamy. I just hope they are selling their limited edition pumpkin spice one again this year!
Ochil Fudge Pantry
The Ochil Fudge Pantry are regulars at the BBC Good Food Show and every year I visit, I always pick up some of their fudge. They have a huge selection of flavours such as apple crumble, iron brew, maple syrup, sticky toffee pudding and more. For the sweet toothed like myself the Ochil Fudge Pantry is a must!
I'll be there at the BBC Good Food Show on Friday the 6th, wandering about trying lots of things. I hope to see you too!
