After my trip to Bluebells to photograph their summer menu I was buzzing and really excited about my next photographic outing. I was very fortunate to be invited along to Taste of London by Chapel Down; a winery in Kent that produces some truly amazing wines and beers. I have been to Taste of London several times before and knew it was going to be a great day. Only this time I was going with different agenda, photography rather than consumption. Taking some great shots of the day was my primary goal, but there wasn’t any real chance of me not sampling all the sumptuous offerings available!
I spent most of the day capturing all the action of the hordes of people enjoying pink fizz and oysters on the Chapel Down stand. I’m not personally a fan of oysters, but they served up thousands of the little fellas and everyone loved them. Of course occasionally I ventured off to see the rest of the show and try some dishes created by best chefs London has to offer.
This year, my favourite dish had to be the Fettucine with wild mushrooms, Grana Padano Riserva & black summer Truffle from L’Anima, Francesco Mazzei’s Italian restaurant.
Anyway, back to the wine. Chapel Down had a selection of their wines and sparkling wines on offer, as well as their beers and stout. Of course I sampled them all, however it was the stout that won my heart on the day, so I made sure I tried it a few more times.
If you get chance next year, get to Taste of London, try some exceptional food and visit the Chapel Down stand for a glass of wine to top the day off. You wont be sorry.
Thanks to Chapel Down Wine for having me along. You can find out more about them here.
