A Good Food DayPosted in : Food, London on by : Reema Tags: bbc, chefs, chocolate, cooking, food, food show, London
I attended the BBC Good Food Show held in London this past weekend with my first ever Press Pass for Hungry Aphrodite! This was definitely a milestone for my blog and I was super excited to experience one of London’s largest gathering of food lovers.
The BBC Good Food Show is an annual event held in London, Birmingham and Glasgow. The London show held at Olympia featured interviews with famous chefs, live demonstrations, wine tastings, and a Producers’ Village showcasing some of the best food products and gadgets in the market.
I had a great time sampling my way through the various flavours being exhibited at this event but my top food find is definitely the Duke of Delhi!
The Duke of Delhi entered the market with biscuits and snack mixes inspired by Indian street food now stocked by the famous Fortnum & Mason store. The new range of chocolates, launched at the BBC Good Food Show, are simply divine! My favourite was the Milk Chocolate, Cardamom and Vanilla. Other flavours included Dark Chocolate and Lime, Milk Chocolate & Indian Cinnamon and Dark Chocolate & Toasted Coconut. The chocolates will be available to buy on their website at www.dukeofdelhi.com in a few days. Clever name, attractive packaging and brilliant taste – highly recommended!
Some other personal favourites from the BBC Good Food Show include:
WineTubeMap developed by wine consultant Nikki Welch making it a bit easier to navigate the wonderful world of wine. Check out www.conviviumwine.com to learn more about WineTubeMap tastings and events in the UK!
Live demonstration by Atsuko’s Kitchen – a home-style Japanese cooking school in Shoreditch.
Tasting delicious curries & healthy baked Bombay Mix by Anjula Devi – definitely one of the most popular stands at the show!
Sampling spicy sauces and marinades by Papa Spice, created by two Gambian brothers to honour their Afro-Brit history and fusion cuisine.
The BBC Good Food Show was an excellent way to learn about the newest foods in the market. I met some of the most creative food producers, chefs, bakers and writers in the UK and returned with bags full of goodies to munch on over the next few days.
It was definitely a good food day and I am so thankful for the opportunity to represent Hungry Aphrodite at the show. 🙂
