Bristol Food & Drink: April 2018

There’s lots to get through this month, and to think we’re not even in the summer months yet! There are still all the festivals to look forward to (Vegfest in May, and Food Connections & Grillstock in June to name just three), but let’s focus on April for now.

Without further ado, here’s what you could (and should) be eating this month…
