Taste of London

Visited ‘Taste of London’ for the first time this year in Regents Park. What a wonderful event this is, if you are a foodie (such as myself) it comes highly recommended. I was so impressed by the whole set up, that future visits are an absolute must.  There were 40 highly ranked restaurants giving you an opportunity to sample their dishes, star chefs, demonstrations and lots of promotion stalls with freebies.

 

‘Sushisamba’ had a stall there, a restaurant I have always been curious about as I love Sushi and anything Japanese and they mix Japanese, Brazilian and Peruvian cuisine. I had a wasa roll with shrimp tempura, quinoa, coriander, chorizo, spicy mayo and red onion. I really was not that impressed but it was an interesting combination.  If they are back again in the future, I may try something else.

 

The best dish we tried was no doubt at ‘Flesh and Buns’ where we had roasted pork belly, mustard miso and pickled green apple in a steamed bun. It was sooo good!

 

Also tried the winning dessert of the festival created by ‘Andre Garrett at Cliveden house’, which was the Peanut butter parfait, salted caramel and raspberry. Lovely flavours but quite rich.

 

Had so many freebies going around that we ended a wonderful sunny evening very full.

Sinusitis, rabbits. ear plugs and memory lane

Sinusitis hurts!

Flying into Dublin a few weeks ago, I was comfortably dozing off only to be woken by what felt like hundreds of needles being inserted into my forehead when the plane started descending. I have never had any problems with flying before so did worry a bit after. Apparently, sinusitis according to a doctor client of mine.. But just ouch on the pain, a completely new experience!

Worried flying back again to England and had strict instructions to take aspirin, paracetamol and to insert ear plugs when about to descend. As we were taxiing on the approach to the runway I saw lots of movement. All rabbits running around on the actual runway, ideally because they were nicely with each other in my mind 🙂 (but they could of course have been males trying to beat each other up for the females attention!)

Aspirin and paracetamol taken and on descend inserted ear plugs. Amazing how quiet it gets! First time trying ear plugs. But no pain so just yay on the advice.

And another picture from my earlier days. Enjoy xxPia30
