Whew! Day 2 over….. Whew only because we had three categories with enormous entries to judge. However our judges did a stirling job working their way Food-to-go and then a HUGE number of pizzas and pastas. You can see them here hard at work on the latter.
Judges who had been foolhardy enough to book in for the whole day (all three sessions) were to be found running up and down our many stairs in the breaks to ‘aid digestion’. Hotly pursued, I might add, by our cats who have been more than somewhat put out that their comfortable sleeping dens in the big office have been filled with noisy judges wishing to discuss the merits and de-merits of soya versus coconut as an alternative to dairy and whether buckwheat is to be the ‘next gluten’….
Those who did stick it out through all three sessions were, however, rewarded with a feast of ‘ice creams’, sticky toffee puddings and choccy desserts at the end of the day….
Tomorrow we are on to nut free, food service and meat based ready meals….. Can’t wait!!!
