I always come away from a trade fair feeling uplifted and inspired. And it was the same at the London Wine Fair 2016, held at Olympia in Kensington, where I chatted to wine producers from Spain, Italy, France, and Portugal.
Meeting people in the food and drinks business who are enthusiastic and passionate about what they do gets you thinking and gives you ideas. I’d love to run a food business, but have absolutely no idea what, realistically, this might be. I keep coming back to the idea of opening a small tapas bar, a family kind of place that would recreate a little piece of Spain in south-east London. Maybe one day.
