Cheese and Wine Festival – East Village (London)

On Saturday morning I met up with a friend and some randoms for our not-so-regular brunch club. Anyone and everyone is welcome and this time we had 5 people.

Cushla and I quickly jumped on that idea and invited ourselves along because, well, CHEESE!
