Throwback Thursday; Michel Roux Jr at Taste of London 2012

27 Nov

Earlier this week I published a blog post on Taste of Christmas 2013 which I visited with my friend Yvette and her son Dylan who just HAD to meet Michel Roux Jr.

It was great to see him and brought back memories of when my friend Chanelle and I met him in 2012 and I had him sign a copy of Cooking with the Masterchef.

Here’s a lovely pic that we had taken way back when… (ok it was only last year!)

Meeting Michel Roux Jr at Taste of Christmas 2013; Tobacco Dock, East London

25 Nov

Turkey, gnocchi, warm gin brews and Michel Roux Jr, yup – it can only mean one thing – Taste of Christmas 2013!

It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas… Everywhere you go. Especially in Tobacco Dock which was taken over last weekend for the annual Taste of Christmas festival. I had wondered why they had moved from the venue of last year, Excel. All became clear when I watched the news on Saturday morning and saw that a 50th anniversary for Doctor Who was taking place at Excel, meaning that Taste of Christmas had to move their set-up to Tobacco Dock, East London.

The Big Feastival 2012 | Jamie Oliver and Alex James, Oxfordshire

10 Sep

Don’t tell me off – it’s been a while since I blogged – and even when I last did there was a bit of a gap before that. Well I’ve recently started blogging for tastecard. As I used to manage the paid search for them (before my Urban Outfitters days), I still have regular contact with one of the owners and when he decided that they were going to launch a blog, he asked me to be the resident blogger!

This was three months ago and why I’ve not been blogging as much on here 😦

It’s been very exciting posting my opinions on tastecard restaurants and my experiences at events. You can read all about it here: tastecard blog

I’ve still been cooking lots and going to many foodie places. So whilst writing my latest blog post for tastecard today, I thought why not share with you all too! Below is a moderated version of my latest post for tastecard.

Taste of London Food Festival 2010 | Regents Park, London

4 Jul

I’ve been pretty busy recently and many of my social events have included food.  I’ve been a bit slow blogging about it but have documented my events with photos with full intention of updating this blog.

I visited the Taste of London festival for the first time ever two weeks ago. I don’t know how long this festival has been in existence but I’m glad I discovered it!

I went with fellow foodie Chanelle (Parisienne Cupcakes).

Chelsea Flower Show 2010 | Beautiful Vegetables

22 Jun

It’s almost a month later and therefore I’m ashamed that it’s taken me so long to report that I attended the Chelsea Flower Show on 27th May 2010 as a guest of the designer fashion site BrandAlley.

As my first experience I was not sure what to expect however the highlight of the day for me (apart from endless jugs of Pimms and their amazing hospitality tent with champagne) was the array of fruit and vegetables, styled and placed in the most eye-opening positions. I just kept saying “are those real?” Onions, carrots, celery – grown to a size one can’t imagine. I wonder what happened to all the veg after the event! I hope they went to a good home (and stomach).
