Sorry to open this blog with a luscious, gloopy image of melted chocolate. But this is the sight we were greeted with at 10 o’clock on the morning of Saturday WestFest. OK, we dipped in a strawberry or two, but have to say the chocolate did set us up for a weekend of foodie WestFesting. Ben’s now famous Market & BBQ was up and running – and it’s fair to say that even though it was still very early by West Didsbury awakening standards, the burgers were going down a storm…

See. Told you there were strawberries...

You certainly couldn’t go hungry over WestFest weekend. The majority of the eateries pushed out the proverbial boats, so whether you wanted cakes, curry, fish, tapas, veggie delights, paella, tea or coffee, you could have it. And more.

So, here’s a mouth-watering visual reminder of all of the tasty treats on offer…

Honestly, it wasn't *all* chocolate at WestFest...

It all seemed so right to be drinking this at Rhubarb at 11.00 in the morning...

We got around as many of our businesses as possible, sampling their fares – apologies to those who were putting on a show but we got to them at the wrong time. Or, were just enjoying ourselves far too much & forgot to take snaps…
