First outing of the show season for LIPS Team Oxfordshire Jane Drewe, Jess & Katy Allen and Jess Meridith - Witney Food Festival, in the most wonderful setting of Witney Church on the edge of town, how clever of the organisers to have it the same weekend the Fair was in town and the sun shone all day long.
Great to see a Church full of folk show casing their local food, the festival was opened by their patron and local celebrity Alexander Armstrong, and a steady stream of visitors filled the isles all day. We did the pork chilli mince recipe making use of the LIPs TIPs (a jar of Chilli Con Carne sauce) perfect for a frying pan and table top day.
Just after lunch and quite unexpectedly I sensed the team was trying to catch my attention; pssss .............. David Cameron .......... who ............... David Cameron, not just local MP but PM him self!! omg, talk about think on your feet, "and who are you ladies?" "I beg your pardon, you've never heard of Ladies In Pigs" I must have gone on auto pilot then because I can't remember much else, and my 30 seconds were up and he moved on to the next stand eating a British Sausage!!!
All in all a great day.
