Taste of London 2017

Last month was my absolute favourite foodie event of the year, Taste of London. I’ve attended and written about it in 2015 and 2016, and now it’s time for this year’s instalment. And I was craving it more than ever. Food festivals are becoming increasingly popular in this country and I visit as many as I can for both work and pleasure. One of these was the London Evening Standard ‘Night Market’ a few weeks ago which I’d been really looking forward to, but unfortunately it was a big disappointment. There wasn’t many food stalls (or at least, not as many as I was expecting) and because the stalls were street food rather than restaurants with kitchens, the queues were long. Seriously long.

Taste of London 2016

The event runs throughout the week and into the weekend – this year I was tempted to go earlier in the week, but decided to go on Saturday to make the most of it with plenty of tipples, and without fear of a mid-week hangover! It was quite muddy underfoot when we went, as it had been raining pretty heavily during the week, but we were fortunate that it stayed away for our visit. Still, I don’t think rain could dampen my spirits at this event! Like last year, I thought I’d list the dishes we tried and tell you what I thought! First up was Cobia sashimi with pickled green chilli salsa, black sesame and chive oil …
