Harvest at Jimmy's Festival
I don't go to many events as a blogger - mainly because my humble little blog is probably not going to make or break a new restaurant or cafe (particularly as my policy is only to write about places I like) but last night I made an exception and went along to The Eagle in Farringdon Rd (which I have still never eaten at - what is wrong with me?) at the invitation of Emily from Taste PR to talk about Harvest at Jimmy's - a festival of food and music at Jimmy's farm in Suffolk. For those of you who don't know who Jimmy Doherty is - he's the likable dude who first hit our screens with his pig farm and most recently on the very entertaining show where he recreates convenience food (like soft serve ice cream or prawn crackers). There is something really likeable about this whole enterprise and there is nothing like a late Summer festival as a last hurrah before Autumn sets in - so if you fancy an escape from London keep it in mind. The other great thing about last night was meeting another blogger - albeit one who has considerably more success, longevity and credibility than me. Nice to meet you Gourmet Chick - great blog and a thoroughly nice person to boot.
