Taste Film immersive dining with Elf

Have you ever watched a movie and when it comes to those eating scenes on screen you start to feel hungry? Thanks to Taste Film immersive dining experts they bring a fun interactive tasting experience to their events and lately even to our homes with their home cookery kits.

This December (18, 19 or 20 of December) to celebrate Christmas they have inspired their food courses around the classic movie Elf. Just watch the movie, pause the movie at certain points, cook, then play and feel immersed within the movie. Eat bagels whilst Buddy the Elf hops around New York City, shovel spaghetti into your mouth like he does when he’s dining with his long lost family and enjoy two nice but naughty desserts as you watch Buddy help Santa get his sleigh back into the air.

As I have been nice, not naughty I was gifted on a courtesy basis from Taste Film this immersive dining experience to bring me some festive cheer during these bleak times.

Taste Film

Taste Film popped up back in 2017 bringing us diners a new way to dine immersing us all into classic cult movies whilst eating.

Food has always played a big part in cinema and the founders of Taste Film are self-confessed foodies; and they wanted to merge the two elements together and bring these films to life with a difference.

Have you ever watched a film that made you hungry? Have you ever wished to be part of the filmic world you are seeing on screen? Been so immersed in what you are watching that you want to experience every aspect of the film?

Taste Film hosts immersive dining movie nights within restaurants with independent chefs cooking for all diners whilst we sit back and be taken on a multi-sensory, gastronomic adventure, where the boundaries of film and food merge.

Plus presently due to the pandemic Taste Film are now also giving movie and food lovers 3 course dining kits which can be enjoyed easily at home. Just follow the easy instruction booklet play movie, pause, cook, play, eat, repeat and repeat.

The Wizard Exploratorium Pumpkin Carving fun for all

The Wizard Exploratorium in Greek Street are holding pumpkin sessions for all the family from adults to kids alike! Just grab a carving tool and carve out your own Jack-o’-lantern whilst enjoying a warm mug of The Cauldron’s signature HallowCream.

Courtesy of The Cauldron owner I went on a PR basis to carve out my very own pumpkin which I named Jack, obviously as he is a Jack-o’-lantern after all!

KitchenAid – Making History 100 Pop Up

KitchenAid held a celebration pop up event on 7 May celebrating once-in-a-century.

As I am a keen amateur chef and love experimenting as well as following those step by step instructions from cook books I was highly delighted when I received a special invite from KitchenAid to celebrate with them. 

I must admit I am grateful that I was born in an era where there are so many kitchen appliances to be had to aid any budding cook like myself to whip up cream or even beat an egg. 

The pop up event was held within Canary Wharf in the East Winter Gardens building in which KitchenAid celebrated their 100 years. I and other invitees were taken on a historical journey through the ages of KitchenAid.

The Grand feed me – Little Shop of Horrors

I had the privilege of attending The Grand along with some other community members of Love Pop Ups London to watch the classic movie Little Shop of Horrors.

The Grand

The Grand was established in 1900. Launched originally as a music hall, since then it has held a number of different events from cinema screenings, shows, bingo and even a nightclub. However The Grand has always remained true to it’s original aim to entertain.

Back in the day The Grand quickly established itself as one of London’s premier venues, attracting all sorts of stars from Marie Lloyd to young Charlie Chaplin. Continue reading

Gino, Gino, Gino! – WeFiFo: Gino D’Acampo event

Gino held a special event along with WeFiFo the other day and it was FANTASTICO!

Many of the other community members of ‘Love Pop Ups – London’ have had the pleasure to attend many of WeFiFo’s various supperclubs in the past courtesy of me and them (read their blogs/vlogs via clicking here) but this time it was my turn. I paid for my experience though as when I saw Gino’s special event being advertised I immediately wanted to secure my spot as I am a massive fan of Gino D’Acampo. However regardless of that any WeFiFo supperclub event is worth every penny as they are all so unique and special.  Continue reading

Drink, drink and more drink – The Spirit Show, London

I went along to the press afternoon of The Spirit Show which was held at the Business Design Centre (1-2 December 2017) in which I took along my blogger friend Kim (see her blog by clicking here). Press events are great as attending those sessions are much quieter which in turn makes it easier and more leisurely to browse around all the stalls, instead of trying to keep on pushing pass everyone to sample a drink or two or to have a discussion with the sellers/owners.

Chocolate heaven – Pierre Marcolini chocolate pop up

Today I attended Pierre Marcolini chocolate pop up event at Carousel in Marylebone, to see Pierre Marcolini latest winter festive collection.  To be honest I have never heard of Pierre Marcolini before or of his chocolates which surprises me as I am a fan of chefs, bakers and chocolatiers. So I was thrilled to go along to this event to learn more about him and sample his chocolates. Unfortunately when I went along he was not around to meet as he visited earlier on in the day.  So I spoke to one of his apprentices which I learnt more about this amazing chocolatier Pierre Marcolini.

Bompas & Parr in summer 2017 held a unique event in both Westfield Centres in London called the Future Forest for a short run.  The event was also completely free in both centres to attend with no pre-booking required. Future Forest was all about exploring the relationship between humans and nature through a very fun and adventurous way.

Bompas & Parr: Future Forest in Shepherds Bush

I went along to the Future Forest one that was held in Shepherds Bush running from 15-28 August 2017. There was a fantastical fruit cloud, a mini exhibition showcasing plants that Continue reading
