Event: Taste of Winter 2014

Taste of Winter Sticky Date Pudding from Jamie Olivers Barbacoa

Tobacco Dock Plaque Taste of Winter

If you are a foodie like me – Taste of Winter is a must, a huge expo of fabulous food and drink all under one roof.  Once inside, instead of using stirling for purchases, the organisers decided that ‘crowns’ would be a better option.  A bit like using your Oyster card to pay for journeys on public transport –  you’ top up’ your card with cash before entry  use ‘crowns’ (1 pound = 1 crown)  to pay for purchases.  However, the registration system takes a ridiculously long time (it took us 45 minutes to register two cards) and not all stalls accept ‘crowns’.    Some only accept cash and others take cards so it is a bit of a muddle.  Despite the slow start to the evening however opening night of Taste Winter was full of amazing sights tastes and smells.
