Waste not want not – freezing food in glass
With plenty of summer fruit and veg around now, this is a good time to save as much as possible of any fresh food you have spare now. And you can save it in spare glass jars
From 17-21 June, Regent’s Park will be taken over by Taste of London, the UK’s best-loved festival for fans of good food and drink.
Friends of Glass will have our own stall at the event, where attendees are invited to find out their personal taste profile by taking our #MapYourTaste quiz.
Answers will be collated as part of our online Taste Map, which will show the most popular tastes across the UK, as well as in other countries such as Spain, Italy, France and Germany. The final result due later this year will reveal the ‘Taste of Europe’ – a fascinating picture of preferences across the continent.
The Friends of Glass #MapYourTaste quiz has already featured at major European food and drink events during 2015, including the EXPO in Milan and the Salon de la Revue du vin in Paris. After Taste of London, the quiz will continue to be available online until the end of 2015 and also there are plans to feature it at other food and drink festivals taking place in Hamburg, Munich and Madrid. Click here to play #MapYourTaste, where you can also read interviews with our taste makers, learn interesting facts about taste and why glass is best for enjoying and preserving the pure taste of food and drink.
Visitors to the Friends of Glass stand will also have the a chance to win tickets to a special beer tasting experience in the VIP lounge with Jane Peyton, the UK’s own Beer Sommelier of the Year 2014-2015. Runners up will be entered into a draw to win a half-day brewery tour and tasting session with Jane at Fuller’s, one of London’s oldest and most famous breweries.
