The Little Squirrels love Masha & The Bear so I was thrilled to receive a copy of their latest DVD collection, Holiday On Ice, to review, and a copy to giveaway.

We first became aware of Masha & The Bear on Netflix, and both girls instantly fell in love with Masha, a cheeky little three year old who lives in the forest, and her gentle and kind friend Bear, an old circus bear who yearns for a quiet life.

Bear does his best to guide little Masha and keep her out of mischief, but often ends up the unintended victim of her escapades. Alongside an unlikely band of animal friends Masha & the Bear share adventures, friendship, and fun.

Foodies Festival Logo

Foodies Festival’s flagship event returns to Edinburgh Inverleith Park August 07, 08, 09, celebrating its 10th anniversary with a three-day showcase of Scotland’s finest culinary talents and regional produce as part of the Year of Food and Drink Scotland.

This year’s festival is set to be even bigger than previous years, with new food and drink theatres, an extended Producers Market and a huge selection of street food for visitors to feast on.

I am most looking forward to visiting Street Food Avenue. Japanese, Thai, Brazilian, Argentinian, Indian, Mexican, French and African are just some of the cuisines visitors can enjoy in the Feasting Tent.

Street Food Heaven!

I’ll be bringing my two Little Squirrels with me, so will be paying a visit to the Childrens Cookery Theatre where the little ones can learn basic cooking skills in ‘Picnic in the Park’ themed masterclasses with Kiddy Cook, who will show them how to make finger sandwiches, fruit jellies and chocolate bugs. Littlest Squirrel may just watch from the comfort of her pram 😉

The Aga Rangemaster Chefs Theatre welcomes a range of Michelin-star, celebrity, and top local chefs, who will cook their favourite summer recipes.
