    Taste of London 2015

    After visiting Taste of London last year I knew I was not going to be disappointed going this year. For those of you who don't know what Taste of London is; it is a huge foodie festival with too chefs and restaurants across the UK showcasing some of their delicious food. AEG sponsor the food theatre where you can watch some of the best chefs prepare and cook one of their signature dishes. 

    I wanted to share some of my highlights from Taste of London with you. WARNING: this might make you hungry! 

     Firstly I have to start with this amazing Prawn Burger Primavera from Club Gascon. I have always been a big fan chef Pascal Aussignac. I think the food he creates is magical. This was a perfect addition to his Taste of London menu.  It was mouth-wateringly good. Even down to the bun it was amazing. 

    Up next was the delicious Iberico ham from Ametsa. Ametsa with Arzak Instruction is very high up on my restaurant to visit list. It looks amazing and the menu looks phenomenal. This is a simple dish but they had used such high quality meat and all the staff of the stall were super friendly and showed a lot of passion for the food they were serving!

    Whilst I was there I also tried the Pure Mirabeau rose which was dreamy. I do love rose especially on a nice summers day. Pure is very light and very easy to drink. It also won the French gold medal.... Which is a huge achievement! Mirabeau Rose is available at Waitrose now too which makes me very happy I can stock up for summer. 

    Next up we tried something that isn't up to everyone's taste: Caviar. I personally adore caviar, I think it is a great canapĂ©/predinner appetizer and goes so well with a glass of champagne. This time I tired caviar butter from a French company called Caviar de Neuvic. It was amazing! I was very tempted to buy some and regret not doing so. Next time or I may even make a cheeky purchase online as it did taste amazing. 

    We also stopped by Bluebirds tent which were serving up a treat. They had a delicious Lobster Mac and Cheese, tuna tartare and Sticky Pork Buns - which was my favourite!! They had a lovely stand with their recognisable Bluebird/Wimbledon tennis ball. Bluebird is such good summer location especially sitting on their newly refurbished courtyard. 

     Finally my highlight of the day was the Mortimer Cider Silent Disco. It was so much fun, the sun was shining. We were sipping on  cold cider and dancing the afternoon away. The music was cool and it was so funny as the boys were dancing to something completely different to me and it was such a laugh! 

    It's safe to say Taste of London 2015 was ace. I had such a fun time and loved exploring different food and drink. I can't wait to go back next year and even visit their wintertime festival which you can get more details about here... 

    Did you go to Taste of London? What's your favourite cuisine? Which dish do you like the look of?

    Lots of love,
