We then look forward to this years Flower & Garden Festival. This years event will run from 6th March through to 3rd June. In addition to all the delicious food, there are seminars, events as well as nightly music rocks concerts.

So moving to the good stuff - the food. We take an alphabetical stroll through some of this years offerings and raise the question which do you prefer Flower & Garden or Food & Wine?

Both girls liked the sound of the Mickey Tart from the Flavourful Kitchen; a peanut butter mousse with strawberry jam and boba pearls. However, for those that prefer the slightly lighter food options there are lots of other dessert options that aren't as heavy. 

Citrus Shortcake: Orange Chiffon Cake, Lemon Curd, Mandarins, Whipped Cream, and Citrus Crumble (V)
Even at the time of recording, a festival favourite was turning out to be this little guy!
The Orange Bird sipper cup with Orange Cream Slushy is available from The Citrus Blossom and is going to surely be the hit of the festival.

There are plenty of options for vegetariants such as this fried green tomato dish.
Fried Green Tomatoes with Blue Crab-Fennel Salad, Remoulade, and Smoked Paprika Oil
Another fabulous dessert we salivated at the sound of is available from Northern Bloom - the mouth watering Griddled Maple Pound Cake with Warm Peach Compote and Sweet Corn Gelato featuring Burton’s Maple Syrup.
Again, we are not afraid to try some of the fruitier options so perhaps the Tropical Mousse Cake with layers of passion fruit cake, coconut mousse and a tropical fruit glaze with fresh pineapple from La Isla Fresca.
Or how about the Local Wildflower Honey-mascarpone Cheesecake with Orange Blossom Honey Ice Cream garnished with Fennel Pollen Meringue Kisses and Petite Lavender Shoots from the aptly named The Honey Bee-stro!! Or another savoury option that caught Jayne's eye was the seared tuna.
