Sunday 5th of October saw an August gathering of foodies and food vendors all in one spot! It was a beehive of eating, drinking, buying, selling , chatting , reunion of old friends at the Tasteoff Lagos 2014 edition. I was invited by a friend and fellow blogger Yemisi of Misykona.com I featured her on the blog a few months ago in my blog writing process tour. Imagine a makeup artist inviting a food blogger for a food festival,  Lol! She got a two VIP tickets and was giving one away when I luckily grabbed it! 🙂 . As a foodie she keeps tab of such event, you bet she’s now my new bff!

When I first heard taste off Lagos, I thought it had to do with local indigenous dishes, but it turns out the idea is to show case different restaurants and confectioners in Lagos hence the name Tasteoff Lagos. Definitely a nice idea because after the event, you will most likely go looking for the places where delicious meals are sold.

The maiden edition of the Tasteoff was in 2011 but this was my first time of attending,  I finally got to taste some foods you only see on food network and in pictures, some I enjoyed others not so much. However I had a nice time all in all, I met some fun people with very innovative products, met a home chef I had once seen on Bella Naija…ok ok…let me show you the pictures,  enough talking!

They also make Wilson’s Lemonade which can be drank as in or made into a cocktail.  When served chilled, the lemonade was very refreshing and it comes in natural lemonade:
