We are really looking forward to being at Cheltenham Food and Drink Festival this weekend. Attracting around 22,000 visitors to its beautiful Regency Cotswold surroundings, this show is a must for all food lovers.
On Thursday, 11 June, the NEC in Birmingham will open its doors to thousands of eager visitors looking to discover the latest trends in cooking, listen to their favourite chefs talk about their journeys, and to try a whole host of the foods which will be on our plates this summer.
We attended BBC Good Food Eat Well Show to sample our wonderful South African Flavorking plums. The Flavorking is probably the sweetest plum you will ever try, as it is a hybrid of a plum and an apricot, giving it a unique ‘bubblegum’ flavour. In February and March, Flavorking plums come from South Africa, where the fruit is exposed to a lot of sunshine to ripen it on the tree. Later in the year (September time) Flavorking returns, from Italy and Spain.
