Last weekend we were homeward bound and back up North to visit family and friends. Although I love London it’s so vast and overwhelming that I really appreciate being back in Manchester when I go. It’s a perfectly sized city in my opinion, big enough to feel like a city with lots going on and small enough to let you bump into friends often and know your way around the entire place. One area that I haven’t spent a ton of time in but I love is the Salford Quays/Media City area. Recently developed, Media City is the home of the BBC as their well-documented migration to Manchester continues and it’s full of new apartments and developments.
Last weekend the Media City Piazza was taken over by the Manchester Food Festival. My boyfriend Matt is in a band called The Cape Race and they were asked to play so off we went for a day of music and food. I snapped some photos to share with you, chatted with friends, ate some almond-stuffed olives and rosemary fries, bumped into the lovely Boo who recently had a baby and looked far too much like a supermodel given that it’s been two weeks (or less?!) and enjoyed walking around the stalls particularly the Camp Cooks and the entertainers walking around. Celebrity chefs like Gino D’Acampo, James Martin and Paul Hollywood were also there giving food demos for just £7 and the event itself was completely free.
This was the first time a food festival was held at the Lowry so keep your eyes out for the next one! I had a lot of fun.
