That's right, our old favourite West Didsbury bakers have 'popped up' in the Pavillion at Didsbury Park and will be with us all summer. It really is a great little venue and the adjoining garden is great little sun spot; we really think the people of Didsbury are going to go mad for the place!
Feeling rather heroic after walking there all the way from Levenshulme (not actually that far, whatever), we had definitely earned a nice slice of cake. However I was really excited to see that the team have added some savoury treats to their repertoire for the pop-up, making a trip to And The Dish Ran Away With The Spoon In The Park a really decent lunch option as well.
Feta and Pomegranate Salad made with quinoa was fresh and delicious, bursting with vibrant sweet and savoury flavours. Mushroom and Gruyere Tart was awesome too - I loved the crispy pastry and tasty filling.
Finally it was cake time (unlike silly Bailey who'd already had savoury and sweet on one plate, pfft) and I couldn't resist snapping up one of the Dish's famous brownies - Gooey Double Chocolate on this occasion. Gorgeous!
I also indulged in a wholesome little scone and a wonderfully moist Rose and Pistachio Bar which I later found out was gluten free. Great food all round and all made in-house from fresh ingredients.
The launch event was intended to showcase not only some of the tasty food that will be on offer at And the Dish Ran Away With the Spoon In the Park but also some of the events they'll be hosting. I was really excited to take part in a vintage fascinator-making workshop by Silver Sixpence In Her Shoe and saw a lot of mums enjoying the Baby Signing. Speaking to owner James it seems they will be looking at putting on a range of events to suit all age ranges.
