Culinaria Village-style

I do love our local free paper . Every week it opens a vast world of possibilities ... enough village jumble sales , plant sales , Get To Know A Sheep day , concerts and bird watching to tempt us all .

In Bitgummole tomorrow , for instance , there's a Culinary Fair with stalls full of organic honey , sausages and herbs . There's coffee and delicous home made cakes , ices and petit fours , cooking demonstrations , lessons on how to build your own BBQ oven , drinks , tapas and snacks , nibbles and treats galore .
What makes this village's event slightly different is that food technician Folkert Follema will be entertaining  us with "An Edible Bible History"and at 4 o'clock there will be a performance by a local women's choir , the Bitchbeat .
Only the thought of the 7 km. bike ride each way is putting me off .

Did you get there? It sounds wonderful.

Your local paper sounds a lot more wholesome than ours. I have asked them not to deliver it any more as it is so depressing.

After a 7km bike ride, we always feel justified in eating an awful lot - and this sounds like just the place for it.

love those cupcakes said...

Our free local paper isn't half as interesting. Hope you managed the ride to that culinary fair, says she who hasn't sat on a bike seat for thirty years.

So, did you go?
On the ride back you could shed all the extra calories from sampling the food, that would make it all quite reasonable, wouldn’t it?

Our local free paper, produced by the Council, looks rather different this week. Usually filled with lots of pictures of the Mayor - not any more.
