Food, who doesn’t love food? But it isn’t just about the taste it’s about the aroma too. Fresh coffee in the morning anyone? That rich, bitter smell. Or what about the almost divine smell of cheese melting?

Well the folks at The Horsebox UK have both on offer. Set up at the Tower of London Food Festival, their toasted cheese sandwiches, or Proper Toasties, were drawing in crowds. Melted butter poured on to a hot plate with bloomer bread infused with herbs making the ultimate posh version of the comfort food. And the staff, just about as cheeky Brit as you can get. With a cockney charm they spread not only good food but sustainable cooking.

Another company bringing a spin of classic British food to the Tower of London Food Festival is Nana Lily’s. The company belongs to Ellen who began selling Christmas puddings made from the very same recipe that her great grandmother used back in Northern Ireland. Nana Lily herself.

The puddings are bought as Christmas gifts and as part of hampers in the UK, but they have found widespread popularity around the rest of the world from everyone looking for a classic Dickensian treat at their Christmas table.

Nana Lily’s message to the world, “Christmas puddings aren’t just for Christmas, there are 364 other days to eat them too.”
