Chatsworth Food Fair

This weekend was supposed to be a relaxing one after our first ever food fair in Baslow (nr Chatsworth).  But you know what it's like!  We wanted to get to Chatsworth's Food Fair to have a look round and have a chat to a few possible stall holders for our next food fair taking place on the 7th & 8th of May.

What should have been a gentle saunter up to Chatsworth House along the River Derwent became a full blooded sprint across the grounds in order for us to reach the Food Fair before it closed at 5.  To be honest we were a little disappointed.  There were a lot of hot food outlets doing pies and gourmet burgers but no food producers from the Peak District.  Instead there were a lot of journey men food producers who do the round of food markets throughout the UK.  That's not to say that some weren't very good but it would have been nice to see a few more local faces!

Anyway, today is a day to celebrate.  We are just off to sign the lease on our cookery school.  A fantastic spot on the first floor of a converted saw mill in Bakewell overlooking the River Wye.
