#Noodlebook Launch


Last month, I held a book launch for Noodle! at the Drapers Arms in Islington. 

It was an amazing night, and I was surrounded by so many lovely people, that I wanted to share some photos and say thank you to everyone who made it such a success.

Special thanks to Nick Gibson for letting me run riot in his beautiful pub and his staff for putting up with us.

Thanks also to:

Last but not least, I want to say a BIG thank you to: 
for  sponsoring the night and providing the incredible, gobsmacking goodie bags - I didn't really know what they were going to send me until it all turned up and, boy, did they deliver!

I ordered fabulous cakes from Bittersweet Bakers - Earl Grey and Yuzu Friands and Salted Caramel Brownies.

My dress, a cheeky cherry print number, was from Collectif in Old Spitalfields Market; my fantastic noodle hat was by Sara Sews Vintage on Etsy; and my ridiculous ice cream heel shoes were by Melissa + Karl Lagerfeld.

Snacks served on the night came from Noodle! (of course) and were as follows:

  • Chevda - Cheat's Bombay Mix (p151);
  • Ramen Burger (p152);
  • Let Thohk Sohn - Burmese Rainbow Salad (p134); 
  • Bun Cha (Grilled Pork Patties and Herbs (p120);
  • Dipping Soba (p148); and 
  • Liang Fen - Spiced Mung Bean Jelly Noodle Salad (p128)
