WIN a Pair of Tickets to ‘Taste of London’!!! (CLOSED)

Yumblog in association with ‘Taste of London’ is offering you the chance to win a pair of tickets to the world’s greatest restaurant festival. All you have to do is simply send us hilarious puns which aptly combine ‘food’ with ‘London’. Huh? For example how about ‘Hot Cross Barnes’, ‘Beef Shadwellington’, ‘Rhubarbican’ or possibly ‘Lobster Thermidalston’? Get the idea? We’ve set the standard and as you can see it is pretty high. Send in as many entries as you like and we’ll use our judgement and bias to pick a winner. Competition closes Friday the 29th May 2009.
