It’s that time of the year again, Andi Peters’ Food Fest is back! Coming to your screens on Friday 24th February for a two-hour special from 7pm, Andi will be cooking up delicious treats along with his partner-in-crime Dale. Join them to see some Food Fest regulars, and new names too.
H Forman & Son’s premium smoked salmon will be returning to the show for Andi and Dale to tuck into. Their five-piece selection is the perfect introduction to the exquisite hand-sliced, rock salt and oak-smoked flavour.
As always, the show is bringing an array of goodies for sweet tooths too. Gower Cottage‘s famously delicious brownies are back, with new selections to choose from. Don’t get us started on their Luxury Brownie Butter trio, you can melt the Original Brownie, Orange Brownie, and Blondie mixtures over any dessert, or enjoy them with fruit for a refreshing twist.
Champion & Reeves are another new favourite for us, the retro-style packaging makes these sweet treats perfect for gifting. The Butterscotch & Toffee Selection Box is a trip down memory lane with high-quality childhood favourites, while the Nougat Selection Box includes snack and full sizes of Dessert and Cherry varieties, perfect for splitting up between friends.
And… now we’re hungry.
