Food glorious food – Foodies Festival at Alexandra Palace

I have visited many food shows before in the past but this was my first time in attending a Foodies Festival. First impressions was that the event was quite small and nowhere as big as other food shows I have been to in the past as because this one I managed to get around the whole show area within 30 minutes and with that in mind I don’t know how people can try and spend the whole day there without getting a bit bored but I suppose the only way you could extend your time without getting bored is by attending a number Continue reading

A piece of Caribbean heaven – Cottons Rhum Shack

The newest Cottons Rhum Shack is based in Shoreditch (130 – 132 Curtain Road, London EC2A 3AR).

Have I travelled to France? – Bastille Day event at Brasserie Zedel

I went along to Brasserie Zedel to celebrate Bastille Day 14 July for the first time ever and I felt like I had been transported in a flash over to France with all the many people that were dressed in French attire from their striped Breton tops to berets and moustaches. Reason why everyone had dressed up was not just to celebrate the fact that is was Bastille Day but also all of us whom had dressed up and dawned our beret each received a three course meal with wine & coffee.
