Eating Eurovision

Without doubt the most enjoyable aspect of London life for me is the diversity. I think I’m right in saying that London is the most multicultural city in the world, so imagine what that means in terms of food. I’ve been exploring the capital’s various cuisines since arriving here 2 and a half years ago and I’ve really only touched the tip of the iceberg.

So here’s an event which gives a good excuse to go out there, meet new people and learn about what food means to them – the basic challenge being this:

“Can 25 food bloggers eat the cuisine of the 25 Eurovision finalists in 25 hours all within the M25?”

The idea (fresh from the brain of food journalist Andrew Webb), is that bloggers (or groups of bloggers), will each draw a Eurovison finalist and then get out in the city and track down a cafe, shop, restaurant, whatever that is frequented by the people from that country. We want you to talk to them, explore their cuisine and of course, eat it – then report back in the form of a blog post. In short, it’s a challenge about going out there and getting involved.

Think you’re up to it? Important details about how to take part can be found on the brand spanking new Eating Eurovison Blog and you can sign up for the event at our Ning group.
