Taco Tuesday

A couple of weeks ago I was lucky enough to be invited along to celebrate #TacoTuesday with Old El Paso.  Matthew and I love Mexican food and I adore all things cooking, so the chance to toast Mexico's independence with delicious fajitas, cookery and a glass of white was perfection.

One of our chefs for the evening with one of the many spice mixes available!  This was the second event I've been invited to at the Underground Cookery School and it's always pitched so well - I picked up some great tips while not getting overwhelmed with jargon.

Hard at work on the bain-marie!

It's always so nice to meet other bloggers and chat while putting together a tasty meal!

Have you tried the new boaty-fajitas (note: not their actual name, I believe Old El Paso went with 'Stand and Stuff')?  Much easier to fill, but still with the potential to explode as you chow down. I love the potential for drama and getting ones hands dirty.  Here's my veggie effort!

As well as fresh guacamole and scrumptious fajitas, we also made a gorgeous chocolate torte!  It's flour free, so I'll definitely be rustling it up for my friends who avoid flour soon!

Thank you to Old El Paso for a really fun, tasty evening and to the Underground Cookery School  and Reprise Media teams for their hospitality.  And thank you to Stefanie, Tina, Laura, Leyla, Serena and all the other bloggers I chatted with for a super time!

  1. Awesome write up! And thanks for the multiple photos! I'm famous! ;)


Thank you for your comment - I do read them all but it may take me a little while (a couple of days) to respond during busy times. I love reading what you have to say!

Have a wonderful day!

I believe in 80s pop, 90s teen movies, and proper thank you notes. I just like smiling...smiling's my favourite.

I write here about London, food, books & travel, and a lot more besides. I'm never happier than when having adventures, cooking for friends, or lost in a good book.
