We end our five-day, five-question survey of Festival Square food traders with a very naughty dessert. After our chats with Honest Crust, Manjit’s Kitchen, Heathcote & Co with the Staff of Life Bakery and Hispi, we’re ending the week by catching up with Ginger’s Comfort Emporium, who’ll be returning to Festival Square from Friday 30 June until Sunday 16 July…
