Festive fun – Taste of Christmas, London
I know it’s only November but every year Christmas festivities start with visiting Taste of Christmas at the Tobacco Docks in London. And it’s that time of year again! For anyone who loves Christmas or is a big foodie this is the event for you.
Taste of Christmas is spread over two floors of the gorgeously industrial grounds of the Tobacco Docks and is a mix of artisan food producers, cookery classes with world renowned chefs and pop up restaurants to really treat your taste buds. For four days you can pick up tips from the best, fill your cupboards with goodies and generally get into the festive spirit.
We’ll be visiting Taste of Christmas this weekend to get ready for not just one Christmas but two Christmases! We have friends coming the first weekend in December to celebrate an early Christmas and it will be the full works! Secret Santa gifts, turkey (complete with all the trimmings), mulled wine, mince pies and of course lots of laughs.
The big day has always been for family but we love the idea of celebrating Christmas with friends too so here’s hoping for a new tradition of gathering with our adopted families and get into the festive spirit.
Here are some of the images from last year’s Taste of Christmas; this has become a tradition for us as we started visiting this food festival in 2008 and every year it never fails to get us in the festive mood, even in November!
So why not start your Christmas season and visit Taste of Christmas this weekend too!
Until next time,
