The Cook School Scotland takes WeeFudge to The BBC Good Food Show
One of the things I’ve noticed since we started the business is there are so many food shows – and they seem to know all about us ( even though I have to admit I hadn’t heard of half of them!) So in our first year it’s been really difficult to decide which, if any, we would like to attend – and whether we were ready for that level of exposure. Our solution to this was gifted to us by our friends at the Cook School Scotland who offered to take our fudge to The Boat Show Scotland and also to the BBC Good Food Show. Now this is the one show I did know about so I was really chuffed that the fudge would be there – and I could go along for a wee daunder and a gander to suss out whether this was something we might want to think about for next year.
The Cook School had a huge stand at the show and all of the chefs were there demonstrating and cooking for visitors all weekend – and the gorgeous cook school girls were there looking after the shop and of course promoting our fudge! Samples to feed an army went off ( and disappeared on the very first day!) so I learned very quickly that people going to the show are really interested in eating whilst they are there! Day 2 and 3 saw another shedload of samples disappearing – but so did a lot of bags of fudge to paying customers who loved it! It was a great weekend and a great learning experience. Will we go back next year………. you’ll need to wait and see!
