Portobello Road is known as one of the funkiest street markets in London, but few are aware of the inspiring culinary secrets peppered throughout this famous neighbourhood.
As a former Notting Hill resident, Celia is armed with all the local foodie knowledge and lets you in on the scene of fabulous food shops and eateries; some trendy, some classic.
You'll taste many treats, including fine hams, cheeses and olives, and samples from artisan market stalls. You'll also unearth culinary treasures like exotic herbs and spices, cookbooks and tableware, and savour a gin tasting at a modern gin palace with tasty nibbles to match. The day concludes with a special chocolate tasting in the kitchen of a unique chocolate boutique.
