Dundee Flower & Food Festival .... Continued

We had a great weekend at Dundee once again at the Flower and Food Festival, with Gino D'Acampo being the main attraction on Sunday. He gave a few cookery demonstrations and the one in the afternoon took place on the music stage (above). He was actually a really funny guy, answering lots of questions from the audience.

He also did a book signing and we were right next to him, as you can see from the photo above. My daughter, who had lost her voice from playing and screaming with the kids on the next pitch on site, was shouting out 'Gino' in a very husky voice, it was very cute. Any way, it got his attention as he looked at her (on my shoulders), came over, caressed her face, then gave her a kiss. Not that I was jealous!!!! He even signed my daughter's arm - she was happy really!

The Council staff worked hard making sure the showground was accessible to all after the night rainfall - they go around with mini dumper trucks spreading bark over the ground. They do a great job.

We were pitched next to another family exhibiting at the show who had some children which were great company for our daughter. She had a fab time too!

We had Cornish Pasties every day - they were so yummy (can you tell from the photo).

I'm now getting ready for Open Studios this weekend, so a massive tidy up in the studio!
