I’m back for seconds – Glastonbury Festival Food Tour 2014!

So, it’s that time of the year again when we don our wellies, stock up on sun cream and antibac hand wash, and mosy on down to the fine farm at Pilton. It’s been a slow build up for me this year; the headliners haven’t filled me with excitement (I wanted Fleetwood Mac!!) but when you sneak a peek beyond the Pyramid/Other stages there are some bloody good people playing, and of course the food looks a-mazing. Standard.

After some Twitter browsing, I have compiled a list of the food I most want to get my teeth into…drum roll please…..

La Choza – missed these guys last year, this time around I’ll be there for sure. It’s award winning Mexican street food – we’re talking burritos, gluten free soft corn tacos, chipotle chicken, homemade chorizo, guac and all that good stuff. They’ll be at The Common, bottom right on the map, opposite side of railway line to Shangri-La.

Pieminister – epic pies with mash and gravy. They’ve got a special for the World Cup which sounds a little bit tasty – ‘free range British chicken, chorizo, black beans and sweet potato in a rich tomato sauce (with chipotle chilli and paprika for a bit of a kick…)’ Yep, make mine a Brazilian! These guys will be between Beat Hotel and the Other stage.

Beach Food Company – this is a little different and def worth a look as they’ve just scooped the Best Street Food award in the BBC Radio 4 Food and Farming Awards so must be pretty damn good! They’ll be serving up super fresh fish and seafood from Pembrokeshire, all sustainably caught. Fingers crossed they’ll have the crab with sweet chilli sauce, sweetcorn and spring onion flatbread seashore wrap, pics on their Twitter look delicious. Waiting to hear their location..

Beat Hotel with John Gillard – last year these guys wooed me with their caramel custard doughnuts and they have again pulled out all the stops with their menu for 2014. There’s a Southern influence going on with pulled pork buns, bbq chicken, refried beans, corn on the cob…plus some Valrhona chocolate brownies with almonds and hazelnuts for afters. Oh and cocktails for a classier Glasto experience – make mine a Lucy in the Sky!

Anna Mae’s – I was gutted to miss the mac ‘n’ cheese in 2013, they had sold out by the time I got there on Sunday! So make sure you get there early for the likes of The Don Macaroni: Mac with bacon, pesto & fresh basil and The Kanye Western: Mac with hot dog, bbq sauce & crispy onion. You know you want to, catch them at two locations this year (nice) – in the Acoustic field and near the Pyramid (vague, I know, def worth searching out though!)

Paellaria – Brilliant paella as the name suggests; it was the perfect antidote to too much Brothers’ strawberry cider last year. Hic. William’s Green is where to find this lovely lot, look out for their bright yellow and red stall! Update – these guys will also have a stall between The Other Stage and Beat Hotel! Another double, I like it!

The Soup Library – I love this idea – have a filling, tasty bowl of soup with a chunk of bread whilst perusing some literature! And there are seats! Bonus. Look forward to heading their way for some hearty lunch, find them next to the Tony Benn tower (old Leftfield) at William’s Green.

Strumpets with Crumpets – I didn’t find room for a crumpet last year which needs to be remedied this time. I’m thinking late morning snack – butter and Marmite followed by chocolate spread and toasted marshmallows. They do loyalty cards, have an ace trailer and wear brilliant outfits, go see them at William’s Green.

Also worth a mention are: The Green Brownie with their gorgeous brownies, ice cream/custard combos (William’s Green) and Glasto veterans Tor RFC’s Fajita and Chilli stall who are parked up near the Cider Bus, raising dosh for their club.

So that’s it, that should keep me and pals busy for the five days…ha! Who am I kidding – we’ll plough through that lot in a day and a half! Anyway, have fun peeps – dance lots, drink cider and eat like kings and queens at the best fest in the world xx
