A Christmas Foodie Special

 

 

Do I love food? Would I class myself a foodie and more importantly do I love food? Sorry to sound repetitive but that would be a big FAT Yes, yes and yes.

 The foodies festival is held every year in the UK and having experienced it for the past two years over the summer period at Battersea park, I could hardly contain myself when I had heard there was a Christmas one over in East London at the Truman Brewery.

A great way to kick off the festive season, the event is run over three days and has just about everything going on food wise, that you can possibly imagine.

Where do I begin?! There were High profile chefs cooking up a storm, mulled wine stations, insanely good street food, champagne tasting and selections of cheeses, chillies and meats that were enough to leave you salivating for an entire year.

The place was rammed by mid afternoon and we were lucky enough to try the Rioja tasting masterclass with funny man The Wine Tipster. Whoever thought that tasting wine could be so hilarious… or was it all just going straight to my head.

They also had some light entertainment with live singers and a little spot for all those vintage tea lovers after a heavenly treat, polka dots and all.

……what about the chorizo scotched eggs? I think this may have been the second time around trying this ever so British and popular picnic snack. Talk about incredible. Clearly been missing out here big time.

Add to that, a very spicy Bloody Mary, some cranberry mulled wine, a decadent brownie with a Ferrero rocher centre, sweets from candy kittens, some interesting drunken diary ice cream, ridiculously hot chillies, salted caramel macarons to die for and one very full tummy by the end of it.
