The fact that this event exists has just made my day. I mean, who'd have thought it, a whole festival dedicated to the delicious, fruity stickiness of marmalade. Complete with a guest appearance from classic character, the marmalade (and lately Marmite) loving, Paddington Bear. And, it's for charity. I'm charmed.
The World's Best Marmalade title is also up for grabs and anyone can enter. OK, now I'm getting carried away...I've never even made my own marmalade before.
It can also only mean one thing for the February Menu - it is so featuring marmalade. Better get practicing oh, and maybe getting organised for January too.
