Wine and Food Festival 04-07-10
I went to my first foodie festival last week with a friend and oh my goodness, it was quite amazing, although it was definitely more a wine than food festival. There were much to taste and try, and my favourite stand was probably BRAMLEY and GAGE, which hosted a whole rainbow selection of fruit liquers and gin, yum =)

Small things amaze me, and so came about my first introduction to what my friend classed as "latte art". Who knew a paper cup holding hot chocolate could look so pretty? Our one had a delicate leaf like pattern on the top, which I have since looked up how to create. I have to say though that upon practicing it, it looks a lot easier than it is! My first three attempts have ended up in a messy spill of coffee everywhere or a very ugly cappuccino. Sad times. Before I return to the Ford though I do hope to have mastered how to create a semi-decent one at least!
