Google Event #GoogleSecretSupper | E5 Bakehouse, 395 Railway Arches Mentmore Terrace, London E8 3PH

3 Oct

Been a bit of a busy bee recently. Went to Agadir, Morocco for a few days, came back, attended a lovely Christening with reception at none other than Malcolm John’s Le Vacherin restaurant in Chiswick and went back to work on Monday (500+ emails parked – nice).

Whilst away, I was delighted to have been told that I was selected to attend a Google Secret Supper somewhere in London Fields, East London. It was all very cryptic. We were sent a map with an X marking where the supper would be held, and a telephone number should we get lost. That was it! I love this sort of stuff. I jumped at the opportunity knowing I was going to be knackered from post holiday/christening/work carnage. Who am I to turn down such a privilege?

I’m glad I did. At the E5 Bakehouse I met some wonderful lovely people that evening – funny how it’s such a small world. The organiser of the night was none other than Alexandra Sheppard. Being in the foodie circuit I know her as ex Qype, Domestic Sluttery goddess and now Google+ veteran.

We enjoyed a sumptuous menu which was all vegetarian! I didn’t realise my body could take in so much non meat! It was amazingly tasty and an eye-opener that a full vegetarian menu could have such flavour.

    Wow! I saw an article about the E5 Bakehouse and thought it looked really cool. I didnt realise it was all vegeterian though. I’ll have to let my friends Amanda and Leanne know.

      It’s not all vegetarian – the bakery was hired out for the event by Google. Have a look at their site. I’ll make my blog post clearer!
