Suriya’s food and wine expertise, along with her itinerary of unique stops, completely changed my understanding of Notting Hill. Each place not only had delicious samples for us, but also represented an important chapter in the history of the west London neighborhood. Cottons offered flavorful Caribbean fare while Suriya walked us through a tasting of the fantastic wine she had chosen to pair with it and spoke of the West Indian population’s impact on Notting Hill. By the time we ended the tour with a Portuguese treat on Golborne Road, I had tasted so much delicious food and wine and learned so much more than I thought possible on a Sunday afternoon. We covered a lot of ground and yet the amount of walking was perfectly balanced with some sit-down stops, giving us a wide sampling of Notting Hill’s historic and contemporary vibe. My palette was challenged to try new flavors, too; the ingenious pairing of parsnip croquettes with manzanilla is not one I’ll soon forget. We even learned about the neighborhood’s musical heritage, including Bob Marley, its representation in film, and learned of its values through its street art and public spaces. All told, it was a truly comprehensive and engaging experience. I recommend it highly.
Suriya is an extraordinary guide with a lot of knowledge about wine and the area. I would recommend this activity to everyone, even if you are not a foodie or wine person it is a lovely day out!
We had a very short time in London and were unsure of what to book. SO GLAD we chose this tour. This is the only one of its kind in London (so random!) and took the place of a nice, boozy lunch- while visiting famous Notting Hill. The food is incredible (watch for the Spanish croquettes!) and so much wine...! And great wine at that! I nearly had to much...if that's possible... My boyfriend was happily satisfied though. Our host, Suriya was so sweet and knowledgeable. We are not big on the wine knowledge but were made to feel comfortable asking even the silliest of questions. Plus we learnt so many fun and cool facts about the area. Maybe the most unique tour we have ever done! Great food, lots of lovely wines to try ... and I even feel like a bit of a wine pro now. A definite must-do in London. Thanks FEAST!
This tour is for both wine aficionados and wine dabblers. Suriya explained what food pairs well with which wines and why - it really is a science! The food was generous and highly varied - we traveled gastronomically from the Caribbean to the Turkish peninsula to the Portuguese and Spanish coasts. We left with great photos of a highly picturesque neighborhood, wine knowledge, a perfect wine buzz, and bellies full of so much good food. I look forward to doing this tour again with my colleagues in the spring.
