Salted Caramel Brownies
London Food Month is here this June to celebrate the culinary excellence that the capital has to bring. There is over 400 events taking place throughout the month, and the Night Market will be in Perks Field of Kensington every night bringing different together over 50 different cuisines in a festival like environment, along with an open air cinema which you can book separately.
Having been kindly given VIP passes to the night’s events, which included free canapés, drinks and access to the covered area, we headed down straight after work to try out as much as we could possibly manage. But first, we took cover in the VIP tent, which ended up being such a blessing with the weather, and also the fact that it was so busy everywhere else. We took advantage of the canapés, which were all delightful, and I think we could both agree that the brownies were the highlight!

We then ventured out and assessed the options before coming to our final decision. Jessica opted for hot wings and fries from The Joint. The meat was so succulent, falling off the bone with ease, and the flavour was immense! Of course you can never go wrong with fries, and having this only gave her a craving to have more. We did spot someone with cheesy fries, but unfortunately we couldn’t find where these had come from!

Whilst we’re on the topic of cheese, we did queue up for the Cheese Truck for what looked like amazing cheese sandwiches. Unfortunately they didn’t take card payments, but it does only mean that we’ll have to pay them a visit at their site in Camden Lock Market! Instead, I went for a parma wood fired pizza from L’Ombrello, which was definitely worth the wait. There was a bit of a queue for this one, but it came freshly made out of the oven and it was superb!
The Joint – Hot Wings & Fries – £7
We wish we had room for more but we had to call it a night at this point. Although the market was smaller than we thought it would be, it was filled with such quality food, and definitely enough options to keep you going back for more and more, and more! All of the food was reasonably priced, although there is an entrance fee which some may find a bit racy.
Adults £15, Kids £8. £35 family pass. Under 5s go free.
