Hello There 🙂
Hands on my keyboard I’m ready to rush into a new post, opening the ground for a new category on the blog: #food! I just got back from a fantastic day, spent around amazing chefs and lovely cuisine at the Taste of London event and there’s no better time to talk about it than now!
So get yourself comfortable (Warm socks, a cozy blanket and a cup of mulled wine lying by the fireplace will be perfect! Shame on me, I’m hugging my heater!), enjoy!
Following on from the sell-out success of Taste of London in Regent’s Park last June, the winter edition offers all the incredible features you would expect from Taste Festivals, with a more boutique feel and a festive twist. Taste of London- the festive edition- has transformed Tobacco Dock into the ultimate foodie wonderland for four days of festive food, drink and much more to really get you in the mood for Christmas!
The event showcases some of the latest, greatest and most innovative restaurants in London, who are serving taster size portions of their increadible dishes. This year’s restaurants line-up is the best to date with Café Spice Namaste’, Kurobuta, Club Gascon, Pont St, Tredwell’s, Tom’s Kitchen, Maze Grill, Mole’ Taco Bar, Ametsa with Arzak Instruction and the Truscott Cellar.
I wish I had time and money to taste all of the great signature dishes at the event but that would be quite impossible.. Me and my beardy boy loved the Guacamole with beetroot Chips and Beef Shortrib Taco from Mole’ Taco Bar. I would definitely recommend the Slow Cooked BBQ Pulled Beef and Brisket Bun from Maze Grill and make sure you don’t miss the Truffled Macaroni Cheese at Tom’s Kitchen!
Taste of London is such an amazing event and there’s so much you have to see ..
The Laurent-Perrier Club House: you don’t need skis to enjoy the winter club house, new for 2015. Enjoy the finest champagnes paired with delicious smoked salmon from Ole Hansen-Lydersen in the sumptuous of the brand new Laurent-Perrier Club House.
Fight for the Throne: Wheater you have sworn your allegiance to the House of Lannister or are waiting with bated breath for the Starks to reclaim the North, don’t miss out as HBO comes to Taste Festivals for the first time. For fans of the epic TV hit Game of Thrones, a giant replica of King’s Landing made entirely out of gingerbread is on display. Me and my beardy love set on the Iron Throne itself, while sampling a Winter Wild Beer, a brew inspired by the TV show and created especially by the Wild Beer Co.
Good enough to eat: It’s almost Christmas, the most wonderful time of the year and we have the perfect excuse to indulge in luxurious festive food! Why not step inside the Extra Special Festive Lodge – an enchanting lodge standing at 2 metres high and made entirely of Extra Special ingredients. Hansel and Gretel – eat your heart out.
There is always time for tea: Welcome to a wonderful world of tea, where the limits of the leaf are constrained only by your imagination! T2 is all about doing tea a little differently, especially when it comes to Christmas! Visit the T2 Tea Emporium: blend, taste and talk tea with the T2 tea Mates as they reveal the secrets to mastering the perfect cuppa. Don’t forget to check out T2’s incredible tea librabry and feast your eyes on all the beautiful Christmas gift packs.
Back for good: On top of all these brand new features, Taste welcomes back favourites including The AEG Taste Theatre which hosts world-class chefs as they divulge their festive tricks and tips. Possibly the greatest pub chef of all time and all-round good guy Tom Kerridge, the incredibly talented Monica Galetti and the extremely gifted chef and restaurateur Marcus Wareing are on the stellar line up gracing the stage to share their festive tips and tricks.
The Taste of London festive edition will be still on tomorrow, if you are in London and you don’t have plans for the day you should definitely indulge in temptation and head there!! Otherwise, If you are reading this post late or you are just too cold to move your little ass down of the sofa (and I totally get it.. it’s freeeezing!) there’s gonna be another Taste of London event in June and this time you won’t have any excuses to miss it!
Here’s more pics from today’s event!
