Last week I went to a different kind of event. It wasn’t a beauty launch or an exhibition opening like I very often go to, but an event to celebrate British culture and meet other London expats, all courtesy of English Town. Everyone there was foreign! And you know what to say when you see a lot of foreign people… “coming here, appreciating our culture, enjoying our food“… and that’s exactly what we did.
I had a really nice time – I finally met Erin and Jasmin in person, after following them on Instagram for a while – and it was a lovely time with my bestie Lili. We had food: started with coronation chicken and some kartoffelsalat (potato salad, which, for some reason I like saying it in German). There is a funny story about the origin of the coronation chicken recipe and it doesn’t have anything to do with a very popular TV soap. It was so called because it was created for the occasion of Queen Elizabeth II’s coronation in 1953. You live and learn.
