As OFFICIAL MEDIA PARTNERS to London Halal Food Festival, Feed the Lion was at the Tobacco Dock in East London to provide comprehensive and up-to-date, as in LIVE, coverage of this year’s prestigious food event.

P1030018Using the power of social media, including Live Facebook Feeds, Tweets, Vine posts, and Instagram, we conducted interviews with:

  • 2012 Masterchef winner, Shelina Permalloo
  • 2013 Great British Bake Off contestant, Ali Imdad
  • Asma Khan of supper club fame Darjeeling Express

tobacco-docs-stallsIn addition, not only did we deliver live videos of these chefs doing what they do best during their respective cooking shows, but also interviewed a number of stall holders about their businesses, all of which covered a diverse range of food products and cuisines from around the world.

From delicious gourmet hot dogs, Argentinian-inspired steaks, beef briskets and American BBQ burgers, to large and colourful decadent doughnuts, handcrafted chocolates and dates, and tasty pies. And while there was even a sushi van at the far end of the docks, a special mention has to be made of these Pakistani inspired Bun Kababs (initially mentioned here) we finally had the pleasure of tasting.

This really was a festival celebrating and showcasing the very best of Britain’s halal food industry.

Take a look for yourselves below and this highlights showreel:
