Sip/Sniff, the rule-breaking tasting event which combines perfume and wine, is coming to Feast London: ‘One of the 10 best food festivals in the UK’ (The Independent).
Together with the wine expert Clara Rubin, I’ll be hosting an evening of masterclasses lasting 30 minutes each – slotting perfectly around the general feeding-frenzy of the event. Last time I went to one of these things, I managed to convince myself that it was perfectly ok to order a macaroni cheese, a burger, dim sum, and some sticky ribs. There is something about eating standing up that makes one feel serious calories are being burned.
If you haven’t been to a Sip/Sniff event before, they’re seriously good fun. Because we’re doing strange things across taste and aroma (the kind of things normally banned in wine events), the experience offers an original take for everyone no matter what your level of knowledge. This is coming from soneone who, if needs must, can get on perfectly happy with a bottle of Blue Nun.
