The Food Show 2012

 The Food Show is on this weekend in Wellington - a true foodie's paradise. Countless stands with gourmet products of every kind, from chocolate, cheese, bread, nuts, sauces, meat products, seafood, food magazines, as well as various kitchen products and applicances, all beautifully topped off with lashings of wine tasting. Nom!

We tried so many new products and fresh taste combinations that I would never had sampled otherwise, which is the great thing about events like this. I bought a few treats but came away with products and brands to look out for in future, including lots of gift ideas. I found myself getting a bit olive oiled out after a couple of hours. (Thankfully, it is impossible to become cheesed out. Believe me - I would have crossed that line today if it existed.)

The crowds were, once again, phenomenal. It seems like every third person in Wellington was there, which is great to see. We had hoped to arrive before it got too hectic but everyone else must have had the same idea as there was shuffling room only, even at 11 am. Still, we waddled back to the car more than four hours later with contentedly full tummies. Needless to say, there is no need for dinner tonight!

Truer words were never spoken
