AFRICA UTOPIA 2016 - FOOD AND DRINK TAKEOVER
This weekend (3rd and 4th September), you can find me at the Southbank Centre in London where I'll be participating in the African Food and Drink Takeover as part of the three-day Africa Utopia festival. The plan is to showcase a variety of snacks and bakes on my stall - some that you may recognise from my blog, others that may be completely new creations.
If you've followed my blog for a while, you'll know that I've done a good deal of markets and a handful of food festivals in the past. But none compare to the scale of this particular one and it definitely took a lot of fighting through feelings of self-doubt and uncertainty - and multiple conversations with the people around me - to get to the point where I decided to just go for it. I'm not entirely sure what to expect from the weekend, but I have no doubt that I will be learning and gaining a lot from the experience. As with most projects I dive into, I'm approaching this with an attitude of excitement, openness and gratitude. And if it feels as though I'm stepping way out of my comfort zone then that can only be a positive thing, right??
Come along and support this wonderful event which showcases the array of cuisines that Africa has to offer. Vegan delights will be aplenty at my stall, so pop by, say hello, and treat yourself to something sweet or savoury :)
Save the dates: Saturday 3 September (12-9pm); Sunday 4 September (12-6pm).
Where: Southbank Centre Square, Belvedere Road, London, SE1 8XX.
