The festive season is a time to eat, drink and be merry – and there’ll be plenty of that at Living North’s Christmas Fair. Here’s a sneak peek of the regions’ finest artisan delicacies who’ll be exhibiting

Alco-pop (NORTH EAST)
The grown-up’s choice. Boozy treats in a selection of delicious flavours for sharing with your loved ones, or indulging in alone – Alco-pop specialises in creating delectably different sweet treats, all with a boozy twist. Ours is a rhubarb-gin lollipop, if you’re asking. 

Weston Biltong (YORKSHIRE)
Makers of high quality Dried Beef (Biltong) using 100% British Beef alongside a traditional South African spice mix. Their Biltong is available in over 20 different flavours so there’s a variety to suit all palates, as well as a range of Chilli Bites and Droewors. 

Warrendale Wagyu (YORKSHIRE)
Warrendale Wagyu was established in July 2017 after taking on one of the largest Wagyu full blood and Wagyu cross herds in the UK, but the love for this beef started a long time before that. The process in long and intricate, ensuring that Warrendale Wagyu can offer premium Japanese beef to the British consumer. Ask about their Wagyu Beef Box, for a delicious array of premium beef straight to your door. 

Chocolateeha (NORTH EAST)
You might not think it possible, but at Chocolateeha they’ve managed to create a delicious range of indulgent chocolates, without the calories. Using single origin cacao nibs and taking 36 hours to prepare a single batch ensures that their chocolate is as pure as possible. Stop by the stand for a Christmas treat without the guilt. 

The Pudding Parlour (NORTH EAST)
The Pudding Parlour is a dessert based boutique based in Prudhoe, Northumberland. Supplying show-stopping cakes and sweet treats to trade and the public, they have a delicious cake-away outlet in Morpeth and run cake classes for both children and adults at their Prudhoe base.

Pete’s Puddin’ (NORTH EAST)
Premium quality pease pudding from the North East, in a variety of delicious flavours. This is Geordie Hummus with a twist – try the Cheesy Peasy or Sssmokin varieties for something different, or go all out with Broon Ale for the proper Geordie in the family. 

Sweet Beet Condiments (NORTH EAST)
The Sweet Beet's array of condiments certainly induce excitement; Tex-Mex-style flavours are intermingled with exotic and unusual ingredients, with delicious results. We love the Maple Bacon Jam with pancakes in the morning (or any time of day) for a delightfully different brunch. 

Le Mini Macaron (NORTH EAST)
Gluten free and filled with 100% natural ingredients, the family at Le Mini Macaron definitely know a thing or two about crafting delicious delicacies. Every single macaron is Han piped and filled with an exquisite ganache or cream. Take home a box of the Baileys flavoured treats for an after-dinner-drink with a difference. 

ViPnuts- The Gourmet Peanut brand: For too long the peanut has been trapped in the 1970s by a few big brands, held prisoner with just one or two flavours and denied its full potential. Now ViPNuts has freed the peanut and it’s back with a bang…. 

Burtree Puddings (YORKSHIRE and NORTH EAST)
Makers of multi-award-winning Christmas and sticky puddings and fruitcakes. With over 15 years of experience under their belt, it’s no surprise that Burtree Puddings are a popular choice for customers looking for a product that’s not only delicious but is also prepared with the affection and consideration that only comes from a truly homemade dessert. Gluten-free options also available. 

Yorkshire Drizzle (YORKSHIRE and NORTH EAST)
Based in the picturesque town of Holmfirth, the folks at Yorkshire Drizzle share a passion for good food, generously flavoured.  That's why they produce a range of healthy flavoured oils and vinegars to add real flavour to your cooking. Dip, drizzle, marinate, roast or stir fry and see where Yorkshire Drizzle takes you. Enjoy! 

Happy Hogs Catering - The Gourmet Scotch Egg Co (YORKSHIRE)
Selecting the best quality products and ingredients from Yorkshire, free range eggs and award winning pork combines to make a truly delicious delicacy, the Gourmet Scotch Egg. Every single one is made by hand with care, to create a taste and texture that results in some of the country’s best Gourmet Scotch Eggs.
