One of the best things about working for Blue Chip is that I get the odd trip somewhere gorgeous in the name of business, and on a recent trip the Isle of Wight, I was lucky enough to go to the Garlic Farm for lunch. The home of all things garlic!
I love garlic so this was a treat, and after seeing what there was to see we settles down and ate garlic flatbreads with delicious roasted veggies on top and enjoyed their creamy coffee. If only every meeting could be just like this one, I thought as we sat discussing Blue Chip Holidays in the warm and welcoming conservatory.
The Garlic Farm is a great all weather option for foodies and families – there’s something to do all year, from farm tours, to children’s educational sessions in their dedicated conference room. There’s even a museum of the history of garlic for those of us who want to find out as much as possible about it– and I’m pleased to report that I learned lots of new things about the Allium Sativum.
I left with a bag stuffed full of foodie goodies from the garlic shop – including Thai garlic sauce, sweet chilli garlic sauce and garlic mayonnaise. I did have to confess to my taxi driver later in the day that I also had a large bag of elephant garlic (the biggest cloves you’ve ever seen) in in my baggage too, and no it was not me personally that reeked of garlic!
