The Liverpool Food Festival
A few short notes about the festival from me, I went for both days and really quite enjoyed it. Ok there was nothing outstanding there, but still some very nice food and it clearly entertained thousands of people, I think it was a job well done.
I ate quite a bit including some lovely ribs from Alma De Cuba and some Churos from the Lunya stall that looked fantastic. A pork pie from Orchard Pigs was really excellent and the beer tent run by the Ship and Mitre was fantastic, a really great range of beers on offer.
This was good work from the usual suspects and I liked it, however I was hoping for a few hidden treasures, stumbling across a restaurant/cafe that I didn’t know about, and discovering some lovely food. This didn’t happen, again the festival lacks a few noticeable exceptions, and thus the corresponding awards (Given out this weekend and only to festival attendees) lack some credibility. I would like to see some steps taken to make this more inclusive to benefit the food industry in Liverpool.
