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.

Immersive food adventourous mystery – Gingerline: Chamber of Flavours v2

Chamber of Flavours is a great multi roomed immersive dining experience.  I travelled through four very different rooms all with a lot of immersive actvity to get involved in.

You are not allowed to give too much away without spoiling the suspense and surprise of each room to future travellers. So all I can really say is that the rooms are decorated very well with a lot of imagination has gone into them and the actors all play their roles with great professionalism and brings humour to all the rooms.

Food, drinks & chefs – Taste of London 2016

Wow Taste of London this year has improved dramatically from last year.  I loved the fact that now you don’t need to use crowns and you can actually pay at the restaurant stands/stalls with money or plastic, however you can still buy crowns if you wanted.  I think using plastic is far better as you don’t end up having crowns left over (dead money) plus saves the environment using less paper.  However by people paying by card at the stands has caused the queues to be a bit slower and longer.  So pros and cons to both ways really. I also loved all the different Continue reading
