Today we went to St Fagans Food Festival. We had a lovely afternoon, eating tasters from the stalls, watching a food demonstration from Taste of Persia (who are going to open a Persian restaurant in Cardiff soon), and just soaking in the atmosphere.
I went along to a demonstration from one of the gardeners in how to store food for the winter after harvesting it. She showed us how to plait garlic together for hanging:
How to store pears and apples in newspaper (so they don't touch and contaminate each other):
How to tie up shallots for hanging:
And how to store potatoes:
|Here's one of the big fat pigs at the museum farm!|
|One of the farmhouses, with the fire going|
|My favourite part, the row of Victorian terraced houses, and their vege patchs|
|Runner beans in the Victorian houses garden|
|Tomatoes and cucumbers in the greenhouse|
When I got home I hung up some of my own shallots in the greenhouse, very pretty they look too!
The festival's also on tomorrow, well worth visiting if you can!
