I went along to Elfingrove with Gem from Vegan Foodie Gems, who had been invited along by itison, last week. I was a little apprehensive as there had been a lot of negative reviews and bad press from the opening night, which was the day before we went, but I went along with an open mind, ready to have a fun evening!
I won’t give anything away as I know a lot of people hate spoilers, but I will say that I really enjoyed myself. I have been going to Kelvingrove all of my life, and it was really great to see it in a new light! There were lots of fun little areas and lots to see.
Outside, there is an array of food vendors, a silent disco, a bar set in a huge teepee with fire pits and, my favourite thing of all, Marshmallowland! I believe that this originated at the Glasglow event and was so popular they brought it back for Elfingrove. You buy yourself a marshmallow stick – they have vegan choices too – and then toast it on a fire pit and tuck it to delicious, soft, melty marshmallows! Yum
For dessert, I had this delicious Nutella brownie with cream & chocolate sauce from Three Sisters Bake, which I would definitely recommend! Loop & Scoop‘s churro van was there too, as well as a waffle vendor!
Elfingrove is running until the 5th of January 2020.
