Bloggers Love Food & Drink Festival

Yesterday I had a bit of an adventure. A while ago I heard about a Bloggers Food & Drink Festival happening in London, and because I love an excuse to visit my old London haunts, and love to blog about food, I signed up to attend.

I arrived a bit early so started the day with a little walk along the South Bank and had a few nostalgic moments. It has changed a lot since we moved away from London in 2003. But I was glad to see the Founders Arms was still going strong and stopped for a little half of Dutch courage (aka Young’s Special, which tasted as good as I remember).

It was good to have a few minutes people watching – there were children playing down on the foreshore of the river, I wished I had had the time to pop down and search for some Thames treasures.

Next it was over the Millennium Bridge (where I saw the amazing Ben Wilson – who transforms discarded chewing gum into tiny works of art) and into the City to a rather dark nightclub to the festival. In spite of feeling rather nervous about all the networking that was ahead of me (am out of practice in recent years), I had an absolute blast – and was reminded that it is always easy to talk to people who are so enthusiastic about the lovely goodies that they have created. I came home with a huge haul of samples, leaflets and business cards and I’ll be blogging in more detail about them over the next few weeks as I try them out. But for the time being I wanted to give them all a shout out… in no particular order:
