Saturday March 17, 2018 - I headed into town for a new initiative that started at the Old Fire Station on Holdenhurst Road in Bournemouth. Called Real Food Bournemouth, it brings together independent businesses selling food and drink, in an informal setting with live music and DJ vibes.
Although there was a light dusting of snow coming in, Bournemouth football club playing and rugby on TV there was a steady stream of foodies coming in to support the event, drink some Bloody Marys and eat oysters, as well as visiting the various stalls buying breads, cheeses, seafood and savouries.
I also had my first Yorkshire pudding wrap and it was epic. By that stage I needed it: Bloody Mary, gin cocktail, red wine and Red Stripe.
This is going to develop further and come the summer there should be hot BBQ street foods being cooked up and we'll be eating inside listening to chilled out music.
