809. Crepes Suzette
I MAY have kind of forgotten about this picture until like, 5 seconds ago. This was taken at the Cardiff Harbour Festival which was in oh, July maybe. I actually had a pretty great day so I have no excuse for forgetting about it! The Harbour Festival is a sort of food festival, but also has boat displays and activities for kids. Luckily, it was held on just about the only day of nice weather we’ve had in Cardiff for the whole entire year.
As my lunch, I got a crepe suzette from Creperie Sophie, who now have a cafe in one of the Cardiff arcades. Suzette is a crepe cooked with a little marmalade and orange liqueur. It gives a lovely adult quality to what is often a relatively basic dessert or snack dish.
The festival also had plenty of the traditional food festival type stalls selling jams, chutneys, and the like. I took the opportunity to try piccalilli at one of them, as I knew full well that as a pickle I was pretty unlikely to enjoy it. In these cases I always like to take advantage of free samples! Even though this was a lovely homemade version made with cider vinegar, as i suspected I didn’t enjoy it!
811. Elderflower Wine
Elderflower wine I did enjoy very much though! I always enjoy trying different fruit and floral wines, and elderflower is one of my very favourite flavours. If you’ve never tried elderflower cordial I suggest you go out and get yourself some this very minute as it is beyond delicious.
