Hotel Mockingbird Hill's Country Fair


Tamarind Hill Farm's goat cheese with crackers
I'm so glad I made the effort, faced the sweltering heat and went to Hotel Mockingbird Hill's Country Fair two Saturdays ago. There was an impressive display of creative pieces primarily from Portland and St. Mary and just as many wonderfully talented people.

I couldn't get enough of Tamarind Hill Farm's Goat Cheese with Garlic & Herbs and Vera's pastries have always gotten the better of me. That aside though, it was great to see the exquisite hand made paper from my very own Fairy Hill community and equally inspiring to meet Norma Nugent who is intent on preserving Jamaica's Hardanga craft. 

My only regret is that I couldn't buy all the pieces I fell in love with. I could only look ever so longingly at the beautiful pieces from the Clonmel Potters and jewellery designer Domaris Mayne. But since this is the 1st of what is to be an annual event, I'm sure I'll have no such regrets come next year.
