1st Sunday of June

Hello my Darlings!

It has been a little while, well twelve days to be exact. I know what you are thinking… Naughty but I have the time to share with you something amazing and it all started in the “Great North Wood”, home/former of the great Adele, Sir Sidney Colvin, Ken Livingstone, Andy Zaltzman and the Noisettes!

Have you ever heard of the West Norwood Feast Festival? No… Well neither had I to be completely honest with you and I have lived in the vicinity of West Norwood for the past ten years of my life. Does that make me a bad person?  How could I continue with life not knowing about the spectacular monthly market street festival, a platform that exudes passion, community and all things fabulously British? I don’t know, but I am surely glad I found out about it.


Of course I just had to document my visit to the ‘Food Fair’ section of the Feast festival.. Out of all it is common courtesy.



It was absolute torture being surrounded by such amazing food and such delicate cakes, I wanted to kidnap each stall and gobble them all up.. That is normal right?





The ‘Salted Chocolate Caramel’ mini cake screamed out to me and I had to buy it, It was so soft and moist, decadent yet light on the palette and filled with salted caramel goodness!  The fresh fruits accented the treats so well that I just had to buy another.. It was a necessity.



Rounding up the festivities I joined in on the 50’s dancing to work of the cake that I had devoured, the amazing Diamond Jive had taught me a thing or two with the retro dance steps.

If you are in the area or not, I highly recommend dropping down to visit the West Norwood Feast on the first Sunday of every month. The next is July 6th, I hope to see you there.
