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!


Crust and Crate Lansdowne: Duck Wings

Sweet chili duck wings tossed with caramel maple soya sauce, cilantro, sweet red chilies, sliced radishes and peanuts.

Jack Astor’s Lansdowne: Bombay Chicken Curry Bowl

Where's my rubber ducky 🐤😉?! 
A year ago this week, I was enjoying some bath time while in @discoverdominica 🏖🏝😍
Dominica's lush scenery is extraordinary, and I'm grateful to have been invited to visit their beautiful island😊😊
Visiting Wotten Waven Sulphur Springs was perfect to relax and rid of some unwanted stress. And the outdoor bath surrounded by all that green landscape was simply the BEST! An unforgettable experience! 🤩
Dominica's adventure activities - diving, snorkeling, hiking, kayaking, swimming - are just some of the many ways to enjoy this tropical island.🤿🙂
Put Dominica on your travel list. You'll love it!!❤️❤️

Everything from the tuna poke nachos, scallops, ceviche, potatoes, poke belly to their insanely tasty lamb tacos - EVERYTHING WAS A HIT!!
This is what summer indulgence is all about!! Check it out!!😋😍

Who doesn't love fireworks?! 🎆 🎇 
With a view like this, im completely on board😍😍
Year after year, @grandsfeuxducasino puts on an incredible show, where various countries compete in the juried pyromusical show.
On this particular evening, I happen to be at the right place to watch Italy perform their magic!✨️🎆
What more could you ask for when you have breathtaking fireworks displayed in the backdrop of the stunning @natgallerycan as it illuminates the night sky? And let's not forget to mention Ottawa's famous spider sculpture, which adds that extra something to any photo. 🕷🕸
Here's to enjoying more summer evenings!

After several years (and many obstacles), I am happy to share that my East Asia adventure to Hong Kong and Taiwan was recently published in the @fwtmagazine
Special thanks to Discover Hong Kong Tour Taiwan - TTB America and Hong Kong Airlines 香港航空 for this incredible experience, filled with once-in-a-lifetime opportunities and lasting memories.😊
I relished every moment: ✅️ Hong Kong's endless and impressive skyscrapers 
✅️ The majestical Tian Tian bronze Buddha in the mountains (walking up the endless stairs to see the Buddha upclose was worth it)
✅️ The famous Shilin Night Market, the largest and most famous night market in Taiwan 😋😋
✅️ Learning survival skills from their renowned Cidal Hunter School in the mountains
✅️ And so much more!!
= This adventure can only be described as EPIC‼️
I'm looking forward to the next chapter!!🌏✈️
