Exploring Borough Market on a food tasting tour with Mimo London

If you are a real foodie then no visit to London would be complete without a pit stop of London’s most famous markets Borough Market.

Borough Market is always vastly busy with restaurant owners, local residents and tourists all tasting and purchasing a bite or two from within so it is very easy to miss out on some of the smaller traders within the market and this is where Mimo comes on board to help visitors discover some of the hidden gems within with market.

Did you know? that Borough Market has over 100 stalls all serving fresh produce from gourmet food, delicious cheeses, cured meats, and artisan patisseries, thus making Borough Market a foodie’s heaven.

I was invited down along with Haydy a community member of Love Pop Ups London to take a foodie tour through Borough Market with guide Sara Butler of Mimo London to discover the hidden delights of what Borough Market has to offer.

Mimo

Mimo was founded in 2009 by husband and wife team, Jon and Nicole Warren when they fell in love with the local cuisine in San Sebastian. What began as private tours for holiday makers looking for an authentic taste of the local food scene, led to the opening of a gourmet shop and cookery school. They have since opened in Seville, Mallorca and the Algarve and now London bringing a wealth of experience with them and offering a host of food-focused experiences.

KitchenAid Experience Store – How to use and cook with plant based food

I am not one for vegetables and so when I was invited via KitchenAid London to attend one of their cookery courses of my choice, I chose to learn about plant based food to see if I could actually enjoy a meal made out of vegetables entirely with no meat or fish and I must admit I was presently surprised and impressed.

KitchenAid

Firstly let me tell you a bit more about KitchenAid. They were founded back in 1886 by Josephine Cochrane she revolutionized the world of cooking.  She patented an invention that would in time become the dishwasher as we know it today. Nine of her incredible machines were exhibited, sold and used in restaurants. Some found a place in respected luxury hotels.
