Taste of London Winter 2014 – Part 1

Taste of London Winter 2014 was another fantastic opportunity to try dishes at restaurants that one would not visit.  There were fewer restaurants serving food at Taste of London Winter 2014 relative to those at Taste of London (from summer 2014).  While Taste of London (summer) is an outdoor event, Taste of London Winter in […]
