The Forage

Picture this:
A beautiful, warm, sunshine filled Autumn's day. An outdoor carpark filled with local, street food vendors. Live music floating on the light breeze. Hay bails and pallet furniture.
Got the mental image?
You're currently picturing The Forage event held at Little National Hotel in Canberra last weekend.

I almost didn't make it to this event. You see I'd asked a friend to go with me and then she hadn't been able to make it and I wasn't sure who else would be interested. So... I went alone.
I know for a lot of people going places solo does not interest them at all and to be honest I was a little nervous about heading to an event with no friend in tow. But, it turned out great. I was able to take as much time I wanted taking photos, trying products and chatting to vendors.
I loved that every vendor had little tasting opportunities set up. I'm such a sucker for a sample!
However, I wish all the vendors displayed their prices. I just hate getting stuck in that awkward moment when I go to investigate, find the product to be a tad over priced and need to back track away from the stall. That said, the products that did have their prices displayed all looked very reasonable.
So, what made it's way into my basket you ask.
1x Bombolini Butterscotch, Banana & Macadamia Doughnut ($5 per doughnut)
Oh the deliciousness. The perfectly balanced flavours. The crunchy outside. The doughy inside.
1x Marshpillows Salted Caramel Marshmallow ($7 for a bag)
Soft, melt in your mouth marshmallows. All natural. Handmade. Delicious. So many flavours to choose from, but you really can't go past Salted Caramel!
1x Keys to Fine Food Pistachio Dukkah ($10 for 65g)
I am such a big fan of Dukkah. Give me some fresh bread, a little oil and a ginormous scoop of Dukkah and my day will be made. I couldn't resist this one!
1x Burrabee Farm Strawberry & Rose Kombucha ($5 for 250ml bottle)
Fizzy, fermented goodness. This little bottle of probiotics was so tasty and gave me an instant energy and mood boost. I've just started experimenting with my own Kombucha making and after tasting this one I can't wait to try adding some flavouring.
Such a fun, well organised event and I look forward to attending more in the future!
