Once a year, all the foodies and all the flower lovers gather together in Camperdown Park, Dundee for the Flower & Food Festival. With Michelin star chefs, award-winning food and fabulous musical entertainment and some of the most beautiful floral arrangements you could ever hope to see – it’s an annual event not to be missed.
This year’s festival was no different. With food demonstrations from the likes of Gary Maclean, Nick Nairn and Tony Singh and entertainment from Andy Day of CBeebies fame – it’s little wonder that the food and flower festival welcomed over 20,000 guests over the weekend.
For me, the highlight of the weekend is always the food tent. Packed full of mouth-watering food and seductive alcoholic beverages – the tent is a treat for the eyes as well as the belly. I could have spent hours happily wandering through the displays, sipping glorious gin samples, whilst sampling the latest chutneys and jams.
Other highlights included the spectacular flower displays and the fabulous children’s tent, which was packed full of family friendly activities, entertaining my own two kids for at least an hour.
September wouldn’t be the same with out this event, it really is the perfect way to say goodbye to Summer and welcome Autumn.
