Taste of London
THE TASTE OF LONDON WAS BACK AT TOBACCO DOCKS FOR ITS LAST HURDLE OF THE YEAR.
This event ‘Taste of London’ happens twice a year. One held outdoors during the summer period in June, where I hear it gathers a huge crowd of over 50,000 people every year. Smaller towards the end of the year event, which I attended on Saturday 19th November for the first time visiting Taste of London. When I arrived, I couldn’t wait to see and explore what the hype is all about when people all over social media have been talking about this event at Taste of London.
At first when, I arrived during the early hours of 11:30ish. I managed to get my exhibitors wristband to enter and the first thing I saw when I entered was the huge bright red logo of ‘Taste’.
After taking a few shots for my Snapchat and Instagram stories. I felt pretty hungry, so I went searching for some halal food and found DaarbarbyAbdul on the ground floor. Tucked away with Punjabi Chicken Tikka I bought, which did look the part when I captured the photos.
Stalls and Masterclass
Once I had finished with my lunch. I went exploring the ground and top floor to see what treats and the food they had to offer. After searching around like a maze, I saw many stalls and masterclasses going on. I finally found some amazing dessert places which looked really great. From all the choices to choose from with various chocolates, baklava, macaroons, cakes and brownies.
All of the above just looked like a treat. Having samples and seeing so many amazing desserts was well worth checking out. Whilst surfing around, I got to catch a half-hour live demonstration of a vegan food made by two talented chefs from Tredwell’s restaurant. The fun part of this was the fact the host got the entire audience involved, by having a person come on stage at the end to taste the finished product. The outcome was positive, so job well done Tredwell’s restaurant.
After the show at AEG Theatre shows. I met up with a few fellow food bloggers from Instagram but out of all the things at Taste of London. One thing that did catch my eyes was these ‘Macaroon Towers’ which looked so colourful from Bea’s of Bloomsbury and I’m sure you all probably would agree as well.
My highlight of the day was this blackboard, where people walking past get to write what they want. Filling the gap for “Christmas wouldn’t be complete without my fantasy guests for a festive dinner party are… and my last supper would be….
Aside from all the food and drinks, where Taste of London was mainly about. There was time for entertainment for the people to gather around and enjoy their time with DJ’s and music being played for the audience.
End of Taste of London
As my day at ‘Taste of London’ came to a close. I did manage to grab one last amazing looking dessert from a place called ‘Happy Endings’. As my birthday is coming very soon *1st December* I thought why not treat myself to some ‘Icon Dish’ Chocolate Bauble filled with Cherry, these looked amazing poured with chocolate tasted even better.
Finally, before making my way home. I went to say thanks and had a chat with my friends at ‘The Datery’ who are so humble and I must say the kindest people I have met. Even though we have only met twice this year in a space of 2 months or so, it seems like I have known them for more than that.
The Datery team has just come out with new dates. These include almond and orange within them, which are so addictive and good. If you love orange chocolate then you will love these dates from The Datery. Especially for special occasions, these dates truly are so good. If you wish to gift your friends or family, they are a treat and ideal presents.
This is pretty much all from Taste of London. I hope you liked the pictures above and much appreciated your reading on this blog post.
