Taste of London

Taste of London

Taste of London is an event held twice a year, in London, and is widely regarded to be the food festival of choice for foodies offering an insight into some of the capital’s most popular restaurants.

Needless to say, for us, it was an event not to be missed!

This year’s event was held in Regent’s Park where some of the well-known restaurants from across the city had set up their stall. Bao, Bubbledogs, Cinnamon Bazaar, Freak Scene and Bombay Bustle were all amongst the offerings this year.

Korean food

Food, it is often said, brings people together. It can help bridge cultural gaps, it is celebratory, and there’s nothing more ‘in’ at the moment than Korean food.

So, to mark the meeting between US President Donald J Trump and North Korea’s leader Kim Jong Un this week we decided to look at what might be on the menu.

Although the meeting is being held in Singapore, we’d like to think there’ll be a range of Korean options on offer too. Not that Singapore’s cuisine is limited. Malaysian cuisine is vast, varied and delicious! There’s Laksa, there’s Satay, there’s Beef Rendang, Nasi Goreng….the list goes on and on.

World Gin Day

Gin

Gin. It’s everywhere now, isn’t it?

You can’t move down a high street without falling over at least one specialist gin bar and even the most modest of hostelries seems to be offering about a third of their bar space to the spirit.

Last year, just in the UK, we bought 47 million bottles. Sales have doubled in value over the last six years, reaching £1.2 BILLION for the year up to September 2017. It’s the country’s favourite spirit apparently with nearly 30% of people saying it’s their top pick.
