I don’t know about you, but one of the hardest things I experience at most events is finding something decent to eat. You either find that you are paying through the nose for a very small portion, or, you are getting something rather unhealthy.
Step forward the Higgidy Kitchen whom I had the pleasure of reviewing at the Rewind Festival at the end of August. I had already reviewed them at last year’s Rewind so I was interested to see what was on offer this time around.
I was pleased to see that their popular pies were on offer; chicken pot pie, steak and red wine, beef, stilton and ale, and sweet potato and feta. All of these were served with either a side salad or with the gorgeous cheddar mash and onion and ale gravy. Their guest pie, which was making it’s final appearance (much to my disappointment) was their chicken and chorizo. So, of course, I had to have one!
As well as pies, there were two types of quiche – cheese and bacon and spinach, feta and red pepper – both gorgeous with their salad and homemade balsalmic dressing.
I have explained previously, I have always been interested to see whether Higgidy compromised the quality of their product by taking it on the road and, once again, they came up trumps. Ably lead by Sara, the team work really well together and I was so impressed to see that, despite some long queues, they kept moving to ensure that people had as little wait as possible.
The added bonus to this year’s Higgidy kitchen was their breakfast offer. Well, I say breakfast. Higgidy do not open their kitchen until 12pm but I guess, with festival going revellers staying up to the small hours, 12pm IS breakfast time.
The deal consisted of a cup of tea or coffee, 4 of their herby pork sausage rolls and one pancetta and gruyere tart. I have never tasted either of these products from Higgidy and I have to admit that the tart is now, most definitely, my firm favourite. On top of that, I was suitably impressed with the sausage rolls. These are something that I am always apprehensive about as I tend to find that sausage rolls taste, well, a bit yuck! No such thing from Higgidy though!
The only slight criticism I would have is that, whilst they cater for vegetarians and meat-eaters alike, there is nothing for vegans or people who prefer gluten free. I am hoping that, at some point in the future, Higgidy come up with a gluten free product.
Higgidy continue to come up with quality food at reasonable prices for the festivals they visit. Long may it continue.
