Yes I was in Dundee city for this years Flower and Food Festival set in the grounds of Camperdown Country Park. The Dundee Flower and Food Festival has become a popular event and offers the best in Scottish food, horticulture and live entertainment. The weekend includes free cookery demonstrations, not only from Scottish and local chefs, but also celebrity chefs, this year it happened to be the Hairy Bikers. As well cookery demonstrations, there were gardening demonstrations, children’s activities and a craft fair.
Here are some sights that caught my attention, especially in the Vegetable marquee where the National Vegetable Society celebrating its 50th Anniversary showcased some of the very best in vegetable growing!
This was my favourite. Hopefully You can see why. Not because it fits the title of my blog so neatly, I also love the way the cookery book page is open.
It even won first prize.
As a Welsh girl, I am so impressed with these Scottish leeks. Overseas readers please note Scottish leeks are not normally this size. These are grown for competition.
Just like these onions.
The longest Parsnip there.
A selection of potatoes.
Also wandered around in the flower and vegetable growing marquee where I got some free seeds from the BBC Dig In campaign. I have to admit I had a pretty good day and I enjoyed this show as much as I did the Gardening Scotland early summer.
