Foodival Prize Winners

There were more prizes than ever on offer at Foodival this year. So who won what? The competition was hot to be Top Tooting Cook among both individual cooks and the participating restaurants, many of whom took the challenge very seriously! Then there was the inaugural Ugly Veg competition, which I thought ended up going to a rather beautiful pepper.  The prize for the most exotic and amazing produce must go to Susan with her bananas grown in Balham!
