Why Every Foodie Should Visit Bath

I last visited Bath about 11 or 12 years ago for a friend’s birthday. Being a born and bred Londoner, I used to love visiting these distant lands that called themselves cities, returning home to London to brag about what I had seen, mainly that there could be “no city like London”. But that was in my younger days when being from London seemed be some kind of indicator of coolness. Nowadays I can honestly say that England is full of wonderful cities and towns that are cool in their own right, they don’t even need to try to be cool, Bath is one of those cities. Not only is it just beautiful, so beautiful that it is a designated World Heritage Site but it is every Foodies dream.

Spending a weekend there with Mr WFD recently gave me an insight into how much of a Foodies Dream it is. There are so many wonderful places to eat and drink that it would have taken me much longer than a weekend to get through them all but here is a visual run down of why every foodie should visit Bath.

Make sure you click on each image to get more information about the places and if you ever visit Bath let me know what you think.

A Taste of Fairfields Farm Turkey-Flavoured Crisps

Foodie Correspondent, Harriet Mupungu reviews Fairfields Farm KellyBronze Turkey with Sage and Onion flavoured crisps.

I’m not a fan of turkey the meat but will happily try out turkey-flavoured food items particularly at this time of the year when most of us are excited about Christmas!


Turkey-Flavoured Crisps

The packaging of Farmfields Farm Crisps did not impress me. The crisps come in a somewhat thick plastic wrapper with a paper sleeve, the wrapper is perhaps too thick.

The crisps though, are absolutely delightful! The turkey flavouring is only a hint, which to me was the right dosage, not too overpowering and not hidden. What makes the crisps a lovely snack is the distinct sage seasoning. You will most definitely need a glass of water with these.

Unlike what you would usually find in most crisps packs, the crisps are of similar bite size. They are just about the right crisp texture. Overall, a decent pack of crisps.
