Wilbrahams’ Food & Craft Fair 30th September 2017 raises £1200. Photos, recipe & links to stalls.

Last Saturday afternoon the Wibrahams’ first ‘Food & Craft Fair’ saw the Memorial Hall packed with people shopping for delicious food and beautiful handmade goods.


Stallholders did a roaring trade in local food. Tables heaved with sausage rolls and huge pork pies, venison and game, homemade hummus and tzatziki, fragrant cheeses and salamis, artisan ciders and beers, and heaps of sourdough loaves. There was fresh veg and fruit from the village and home bakers had filled a stall with cakes, chutneys, and jams. The Great Wilbraham Stores provided their sought after homemade samosas whose spicy scent drew you in from the door.The car park even had a fresh and smoked fish van from Lowestoft which attracted a healthy queue.

Crafty folk prepared early for Christmas by buying award winning Christmas puddings, and early present seekers could choose from delicate silver jewellery, stunning ceramics, beautiful prints and watercolours, handmade toys and textiles and even some gorgeous decorations for the tree.

Tasty soup, bread, cheese, cakes and teas were taken indoors and outside in the sun but the highlight was Gt Wilbraham local, Ian Cumming, the 2015 Bake-Off finalist, demonstrating how to make a chocolate and salted caramel chiffon cake to the crowd. The taste was to die for and people clamoured for the recipe. Find it here.

To top it all off, the event raised a fantastic £1200 for Memorial Hall funds. A huge thanks to everyone involved (you know who you are!).
