Squires Kitchen’s Exhibition 2012

Squires Kitchen’s 26th Annual Exhibition report.

The Exhibition traditionally takes place in Farnham, Surrey, home of the Squires Group, and is the perfect chance for sugarcrafters from all over the world to congregate.

Whoever visited the Farnham Maltings between March 9th and March 11th had the chance to meet master sugarcrafters: Eddie Spence, Paddi Clark, Sue Griffiths, Makiko Searle, Alan Dunn, Ceri D.D. Griffiths, Carlos Lischetti, Liz Aplin, Peggy Porschen, Mark Tilling, Jan Clement-May and many, many more in free demonstrations or pre-booked mini-classes.

If a wedding cakes display, a huge bookstand with the chance to meet the authors, a contest and many more demonstrations (such as the beautiful isomalt creations by lovely Ildo and Maureen Nicolello and the live wedding cake decoration display) were not enough, visitors were also able to sample and purchase professional equipment and ingredients from numerous stands set up by Squires Kitchen and many other exhibitors.

The public liked the idea so much that all tickets for the show sold out on all three days.

I had the privilege to be at the Exhibition, you might have seen me at Squires Kitchen’s stand, busy working on hibiscus petals… If not, here’s a piece of photographic evidence! 🙂

A short recap of those three days? I met some lovely people and got in touch with friends: an extraordinary experience I’d love to repeat next year.
