Taste of Christmas...Mmmm

Today dawned bright & crisp... it's finally beginning to feel Christmassy... a couple of friends and I were headed to the Excel centre in East London for "ATaste of Christmas".... this is beginning to be a bit of a tradition of ours and kick starts the build-up to Christmas. With a feast of exhibits offering samples and tastings it really is a taste of christmas along with some fabulous demonstrations from the cream of the chef world its is a real treat of day.
Getting there early we managed to see Jamie & Hugh open the proceedings and talk about what their Christmas plans are... looking forward to both their Christmas shows. Jamies Christmas with Bells on airs on December 14th C4, recipes can be found here and Hughs River Cottage Christmas airs on December 12th more details here

With the show open we browsed the stalls, tasting and sampling lots!... favourites of the day goodie bag from Jamies magazine, with Christmas essentials; Jamies Christmas pudding, duck fat for roasties, mulled wine syrup, magazine & big gold chocolate coin!.. yum yum... the Chocolate wine from the Chocolate Shop  wine company was also a big hit.... my other two favourites of the day were William Curley's chocolate demonstration and the Waitrose school of magic... see blog posts below.
Lots of treats purchased for Christmas and Florences boot was full on the way home!... looking forward to next year already...
