The reveal (part two)

No time for a good picture this week. Why? Because it's action stations in the North London Kitchen. I can finally reveal the massive project I've been working on, which is possibly the most exciting and terrifying thing ever...

...I'm going to be selling my products at the Covent Garden Real Food Market! Ohmygoodness! Basically, if you live in London, for the next three Thursdays (2nd, 9th and 16th July) you can come down and see little ole me and my jams, chutneys, cakes, cookies and such like, and even buy it! I'll be in the piazza of Covent Garden (near the Royal Opera House end) from 12pm - 8pm each week.

I've been wanting to make NLK into a business for so long now, but didn't know where to start, and was convinced when friends and family said things like "you could sell this you know" that they were just being polite. Well, they probably were, but as of Thursday I'll actually find out. Who knows, it might be the start of my empire, it might lead to nothing. But's it's going to be great fun and a wonderful experience.

It's all part of the UK Food Bloggers Association, and I must thank them and particularly Julia Parsons so much for providing the opportunity.

I'd love to see some of you down there (don't worry, there's won't be any hard sell, just some nervous grinning). Sorry I can't give more exciting recipes and tales from NZ, but right now I have tomorrow's teaching to prepare, a chapter of the Phd to edit and a price list to put together. Eek!


  1. I need some more chutney, as the mother-in-law's delicious apple and green pepper has finally run out. I'll come down for sure, it's on my way home :D

  2. That'll be so cool to see you!

  3. can't wait to see you (and your stall)on Thursday.
    Hopefully there will be something chocolatey for me to buy.

  4. Good luck Rebecca!! I'm thrilled for you. It takes a lot to make that big leap.
    I want to chat with you about your trip, but summer just seems to be flying by, where to fit it all in?
    Thanks for the litte award, you are lovely too...

  5. I'm coming down tomorrow after work so should be there for 5.30 pm or so.

    Want to wish you lots of luck and looking fwd to meeting you!

  6. Thanks for your note on my blog. Heads up, there's a competition currently running to win posh choccies from Artisan du Chocolat. All you need to do is comment with contact info!
    See you tomorrow!

  7. Oh good luck! How fantastic. I will try and pop down on the 16th! x
