Bash 2016: London’s Calling With It’s English Cuisine!

By on May 31, 2016

Big Ben, Buckingham Palace and the ever so dapper James Bond. Now what do they all have in common? All pleasing to the eye…Yes, but they also call London home. And London happens to be this years theme to Ottawa’s hottest summer party, BASH!

Bash, in support of the Snowsuit Fund, will be hosting again another sold-out one a kind soirée! I had the pleasure of attending last year’s event and it was literally off the charts. No expenses were spared when it came to theatrics, entertainment and décor.

This year’s summer event is paying tribute to the royal treatment in every sense of the word. London Calls is the theme for this year’s chic evening. I have been told that anything and everything that screams and epitomizes British sophistication will be integrated in one facet or another at this year’s event.

And when I say anything and everything, I am talking about being awe struck as soon as you enter the Horticulture building, where the British extravaganza will be taking place, and from there the skies the limit!

As a VIP guest, you’re immediately spoiled with local food vendors serving a variety of London inspired fare and, of course, an open bar. As you move past the entrance, you uncover a secret London Underground party. You see a Beatles VIP cover band, three very famous London spies hosting table service, a London barber shop, PIMMS Bar and an important address from the Queen regarding the late night service of macarons and scones.

Now BASH 2016 London Calls wouldn’t be complete without savouring some English culinary delights, and you know, I have the culinary scoop for you.

I am please to say that several restaurants have teamed up and showed their support for the Snowsuit Fund. So here’s some teasers for you and your tummy to enjoy!

  • While sitting on the famous 'Giant's Boot'👢I took in the sight, smell and view of the ocean during my stay in Northern Ireland☘
The Giant's Boot is one of six must-see sights at Northern Ireland's only UNESCO World Heritage Site.
In Port Noffer, sea lover's 🌊 like myself can find a small path leading towards the sea. This takes you to what is perhaps the bay's most famous feature - the Giant's Boot - reputed to be a size 93.5! #bigfeet #travelblogger #travel #travelpics #thefoodteasetravel #luxurytravel #northernireland #ireland #unesco #sea #sealover

  • Caviar lovers you need to read about my sturgeon caviar experience in the latest issue of @luxeottawamagazine 
I learned so much about this tasty delicacy 😋 directly from the man himself @kingofcaviar 
As a Canadian 🇨🇦 I am proud of the work that Acadian Sturgeon and Caviar Inc. is doing in regards to replenishing the sturgeon population, simply amazing 😍

  • Tea time with delicious nibbles at this perfect country retreat🥮🧁@manorhousecountryhotel dates back to the 17th centry - the perfect combination of old world charm with modern luxury. It was exactly what I needed while I toured around Northern Ireland☘😍

  • I was surprised to find out about Ireland's 'Gin Craze'🍸 that has been happening the last couple of years. It seems as though almost every establishment I had the pleasure staying in Ireland at (castles, resorts and hotels) had their own crafted gin. So it made sense that @galgormresort, winner of the 'Global Luxury Spa of the Year 2018' (they have Ireland's first of its kind, 'Thermal Village & Spa'), also won 'Bar of Year 2018' with their Gin Library tastings. They carry over 400 different types of gin. Being a gin lover this was something that I couldn't pass up on! My favourites were UK's Truffle Gin - using white truffles from Alba😍😍 and Spain's Nordés Atlantic Galician Gin with their citrus notes. And surprisingly, the milk gin, 'Bertha's Revenge' from Ireland (didn't realize that several gin distilleries were using whey in their recipes) was also quite tasty🍸😋 A wonderful and delicious experience to say the least 😉#gin #gintasting #ginlovers #drinks #cocktails #travelblogger #foodblogger #spirits #presstrip #luxury #luxelife #gincraze #truffles #thefoodteasedrinks #thefoodteasetravel #waunderlust #globetrotter #passport #gintonic
  • What an amazing experience I had in Northern Ireland at the Carrick-a-Rede Rope Bridge!!
Fishermen used to erect a rope bridge to Carrick-a-Rede island over the 30m-deep/20m wide chasm to check their salmon nets.Today visitors like myself, can enjoy the incredible experience and cross the bridge to access the rocky island. 
The scenery from that height is simply breathtaking 😍 #northernireland #ireland #travelblogger #travelpics #naturelover #attraction #topattraction #pictureperfect #carrickareedropebridge #naturephotography #thefoodtease  #thefoodteasetravel #lovemyjob #lovethisplace #zenmoment #oceanview #oceanlover #adrenaline #bridge #shakyshaky
  • Traveling to @discoverni ☘☘one must visit the awe-inspiring columns known as the Giant's Causeway.😍😱 The Giant's Causeway was formed over 600 million years ago, when molten lava cooled suddenly on contact with water. The Causeway lava cooled and shrank, splitting apart to create a pavement-like surface and tall columns. Most have 6 and 7 sides to them😱 
You have to see them upclose and take in their beauty!❤❤ #northernireland #ireland #travelblogger #travelpics #naturelover #attraction #topattraction #pictureperfect #giantscauseway #lava #naturephotography #thefoodtease  #thefoodteasetravel #lovemyjob #lovethisplace #zenmoment
  • Some Irish luck☘ was on my side during my foraging walk and mindfulness tour in the Sperrin Mountains. I was learning about the local flora and learning about being 'present' in the moment when my☘ luck kicked in. Since its 'lambing' season, one of the ewes was about to give birth and at that moment, I was asked if I would be interested in assisting the birth!!! I was so excited!
To pull the lambs front legs and see it's tiny face was breathtaking😍😍To see it open its doe like almond eyes for the first time will be something I will always cherish...to me that is the best Irish souvenir I could ever ask for☘🐑😍 I was more than happy to hold a lamb that was just 20min old and now to actually assist in a birth...well that was the icing on the cake for me😍😍 #travelblogger #travelpics #travellover #instatravel #foodblogger #lambing #timingiseverything #perfecttiming #birth #onceinalifetime #irishlamb #foraging #gratitude #memorable
  • I had an incredible stay at the luxurious 5-star @lougherneresort 😍 And if that wasn't enough, I also had the pleasure of meeting acclaimed Executive Chef @noel_ireland
and be spoiled with his mouthwatering dishes!
Golfers ⛳will be in heaven as this resort has 2 championship courses with the most beautiful scenery. I was fortunate to have a private boat ride and delicious picnic (available to guests) to view Lough Erne and its many islands, including one that has Tully Castle, built in 1611😱 #travelblogger #foodblogger #waunderlust #globetrotter #worldtravel #foodie #foodporn #castle #golfer #luxurylife #luxurytravel #resort #thegoodlife #lovemyjob #thefoodteasetravel #thefoodteaseeats
  • I couldn't go to Northern Ireland without visiting the Games Of Thrones site, The Dark Hedges aka The King's Road. Its one thing to see it on tv but its another to see the beautiful beech trees up close. The Dark Hedges are the most photographed spot in Northern Ireland...I just couldn't pass it up. The scenery upclose is hauntingly beautiful!!😱😍 #travelblogger #got #gotfan #darkhedges #kingsroad #northernireland #instatravel #thefoodtease #thefoodteasetravel #runningscared #nature #naturephotography #beauty #gamesofthrones #bucketlist #gotfans
  • What every little girl and most women dream of doing...sleeping in a real castle. But not just in any castle, only a real ☘🏰 will do. 
I was fortunate enough to be a guest at @castleleslie and take part in some of their bespoke activites that they offer their guests. The perfect destination to celebrate a milestone or to simply feel luxuriously pampered😍😍 #travelblogger #castle #irishcastles #castleleslie #luxurytravel #luxurylife #waunderlust #fairytail #princess #thefoodteasetravel #falconry #horsedrawncarriage #falcon #lovemyjob #bucketlist #princesslife #instatravel
  • This champagne 🍾🥂 lover now has a new appreciation for beer🍺
