hello *waves* – yes I am still here! Just settling into a new work routine, (Charlotte had her first day in childcare yesterday) and we have been busy catching up with friends and working on the (dreaded) garden beds.
But rather than bore you with all of that, let’s focus on the fun part of our weekend - attending this year’s Multicultural Festival.
Which was, as always, bustling with energy and (more importantly) a-maaazing food from all around the globe.
Bright and early on Sunday , we packed up the little Miss and headed in for a late morning wander around the stalls.
And, as is normal for these types of events, it wasn’t long until the delicious aromas had our bellies rumbling and we found ourselves lured to all sorts of food stalls.
My personal favourites of the day?
- A delicious Mallawach wrap (a Jewish Yemeni bread) filled with tomato, ricotta and chilli (I am hoping to make this at home sometime soon).
- Some tasty vegetarian kofte, drizzled in a rich tomato sauce
- A delightful plate of pad thai
Even the little Miss got in on the action, and tried everything that we did!
But my absolute favourite of the day?? Loukoumades! A Greek fried dough, soaked in sugar syrup and topped with cinnamon and ground nuts.
Oh my lord these were good. Too good.
A perfect family day out!
