Charlotte Smith-Jarvis’ picks of what to eat at Jimmy’s Sausage and Beer Festival this weekend.
I have my bag packed. Fork ready. Responsible adult driver person prepared to roll me home.
It’s festival time.
I may have missed the glory of Latitude (there’s always next year) but I’m poised for gluttony this weekend as I prepare to eat my way through the fields at Jimmy’s Sausage and Beer Festival.
Here’s my foodie hit list. Tweet us pictures of your best eats at the fest @eadt24 and find my food musings @csmithj84

1. Burger & Beyond
Gourmet, hand pressed burgers made with dry aged beef and served from a totally cute orange Citroen van. I’ll be chewing on the creamy melted Swiss burger, consisting of a patty topped with Swiss cheese, sautéed mushrooms, garlic aioli, lettuce and onion.

2. Essex Bakery
Only the best flipping brownies…ever! Epic, packed with chocolate, crunchy and chewy they are heaven in a bar. Flavours includes chilli, mint, orange and pure chocolate. Yes please.
3. From the Ashes
Anticipate the taste as you watch the chefs bang together your pizza from fresh dough, cooking it in 90 seconds. The premium dough is topped with prime local ingredients and a sauce made from sweet Italian toms and a bit of salt.
4. Get Battered
Top notch fish and chips from sustainable sauces, and even a ‘cod dog’ but I’ll have my eye out for their Barber’s cheddar fritters with sweet chilli chutney!
5. Herman Ze German
Somewhere, deep in the Black Forest is a butcher lovingly crafting all manner of sausages, from lightly smoked pork, to chilli beef – all for your delectation. On my list is Ze Wilde Bock roll – bockwurst, curry sauce, crispy onions, mayo and a few frites in a roll. Sorry, I am salivating now.
6. Le Rac Shack
If you go skiing you might have come across the molten glory of goodness that is raclette. It’s the ultimate melted cheese and is served here over cooked meats or veg. Which to have?
Totally natural, no rubbish added whole fruit lollies. And they’re dairy and gluten-free too. What’s not to love? Make mine a Caribbean Twist with mango, passionfruit and pineapple…or a Wills and Kate with kiwi and strawberry.
8. Piggie Smalls
One word. Dogt’onion. Smoked frank and onions braised in butter and beer. Make sure you have a dance after to burn it off.
9. Street Dawg
Now we’re talking. Pick a sausage. Could be a plain but delicious pork dog, or perhaps one of the black pudding or garlic variety. Add your toppings. Mine’s going to be the award-winning dog with homemade garlic, herb and crumb stuffing.
10. The Duck Truck
A Suffolk born food truck that sells possibly one of my most favourite things in the world – crispy duck wraps. Find me laying on the ground near the truck with a smile on my face.
