Chowzter’s Get Together Event at The Hoxton Hotel

By Nogarlicnoonions @nogarlicnoonion

The Chowzter event started when we all met at the Hoxton Hotel’s garden square for a chitchat, with a few bottles wine to break the ice. I was so excited to meet bloggers from around the world, all putting much effort in bringing the world some fine recipes, food discoveries or restaurant reviews. For example, I met a guy who writes about interesting subjects that magazines don’t tend to cover, like having meals with celebrities.

Each year, Chowzter is committed to finding the tastiest fast feasts on earth. In the process Chowzter hopes to provide amazing tips to foodies around the world about where to get delicious fast feasts of the highest quality at a good price, anytime and anywhere. We are seeking Fast Feasts, which should not be confused with historical notions of unhealthy fast food. Chowzter is committed to fresh ingredients, prepared at the moment of consumption.

I was excited to receive the schedule in advance:

  • Day 1: April 25th, Friday: Meet at the ‘Garden’ at the hotel
  • Day 2: April 26th, Saturday: Food Market Tour. Two separate groups, one will go to Borough Market and the other to Broadway Market. Afterwards a Steak Symposium is taking place at Flat Iron Steak
  • Day 3: April 27th, Sunday: A walk to Fish Central for a fish symposium and round table before meeting for the 2014 Global Chowzter Awards

Intrigued to know what the wines on offer would be like I started with a proseco followed by a red wine and then a cold white to see what they had to offer. The Doc Proseco extra dry is fine with interesting aromas and good textures, rated 3,9 on The Vivini application. As for the rest of the wines, I was in shock. Siete Soles, Cabernet and Merlot from Chili 2013 ended up left alone at the table, it wasn’t alone for long though, a white followed: a Riebeek Cellars collection from South Africa. A nice aroma but an acidic and dull taste with a bad aftertaste that followed on. I’m not sure if they were not kept in the sun for sometime.

Everyone was happy eating and drinking while the world’s finest food bloggers, according to Chowzter, got to know each other.

Things I Enjoyed:

  • I liked how the food was served fresh and hot
  • I loved the freshness of the bites
  • It was all presented on real wood plateaus and well decorated
  • The sauces were very tasty
  • Service was really good and professional

Unfortunately it was too hot and humid that night, but the ambiance was so joyful that we forgot about the negative things.

The three-day event was just starting and the best was yet to come.
