The first Lovelife event in Brixham was a roaring success for Well Bread! And for everyone else, the place was packed from 10 till 4 and all the stalls seemed to be busy. My initial plan was to offer samples and advice but I soon found that people wanted the loaves I had on show and were less interested in what I had to say, preferring to take one of the handouts I had printed and try a few things.
I set up my stall to show the variety of things you can do with Sourdough,
and I think a lot of the people were surprised.
The products that I had thought people would consider a bit 'strange,' such as the Baked Potato Rosti, flew off the stall and other things such as the Chocolate Brownies were languishing.
Still I managed to get rid of just about everything, a few Muffins and Scones plus a box of Brownies are now in my freezer, they will be good for family visits and I have the promise of orders to come.
A highlight of the show was the pedal-powered Smoothie Machine, where you could make your own drink with effort. Mine would probably be rather lumpy.
Light relief was provided when the plastic gazebo blew away in a gust, it flashed past the door and out of sight up the road, chased by several shouting gentlemen.
A good day then, but an exhausting one and lots of preparation as well. Time for a visit to Totnes Good Food Sunday today. After yesterday I will view the stalls with a new perspective.
