Foodtown 2008 at The Cheese and Wine Shop Review

what a lineup for for our Exmoor Ales... or was it for the Wigmore Cheese! Tasters above line up for a taster. (or two!)

A busy weekend, let down by poor weather, didnt deter the hardy from sampling our wide range of tasters and competitions. Those Foodtown visitors not tasting our wide range of treats where busy entering our Foodtown competitions. 

Foodtown weekend was ....

four seasons in one day. This didnt dampen our, or festival goers appetites; the days starting with some of our popular Danish pastries. Mid morning .....

Customers sampled Cheeses...

of which, most popular where our superb Cheddars, including those in the Quickes family (Mature, Smoked and Herb) along with our House Cheddars, Somerset Brie, Devon Blue and Waterloo, all of which where big hits.

Who ate all the Pies then? Foodtown people thats who! Our Chunk Pies, are always popular, and great value. When we tasted them alongside our award winning Exmoor Ales (Exmoor Gold and Beast) customers commented that this was an ideal match!.

We do, of course, do lots of tastings, week in week out, (somebody has too!) and tastings, discussion and advice are what The Cheese and Wine Shop is all about.

Our Teoni Biscuits, and West Country Meringues added a nice sweet touch. Teonis Bicckys make great gifts, and are ever popular here at The Cheese and Wine Shop. With our West Country Meringues, we added some of our Runnington Raspberries and made a lovely Eaton mess style taster.

Foodtown folks where spoilt for choice at The Cheese and Wine Shop, as they still found room to taste our Tyrrells Vegetable Roots, and our Epicure snacks, Duchy Biscuits, and still made room to enjoy a Bendicks Bittermint and or Mint Crisp! Little ones sampled our Jelly Bellys, complete with Menus!

Sunday, which was sunny for a short while, was ideal for tasting our Exmoor Ales! (and Cheese straws with Dijon Mustard)
