I love this. Moro trained chef Ellen Parr and set designer Alice Hodge come together to host an amazing evening of fun, food and nostalgia. The latest theme is 'After School Club' - think fine dining school dinners, pencil cases for your cutlery, art and English lessons, all overseen by a strict headmistress. The creative duo have hosted various pop-ups across London including 'The Colour Palate' where everything changes colour for each course (food and dining room), a take on Abigail's Party with kitsch 70s decor and a menu to match, and 'Gone Camping' which recreates those family memories of cooking food on a little stove in the British countryside. Each event has been planned down to last detail to create a memorable night with fantastic food. The 'After School Club' runs from 22 July - 5 August, tickets available now.
Recycling in its most natural form. Fun, engaging idea that will make people think twice about peeing up a tree.
It's been World Chocolate Day this week, hope you celebrated appropriately. I certainly don't need another reason to eat more but here's ten in case you're finding it tough to justify that square (or five) before bedtime.
This interesting read looks back at the 'national kitchens' of the early 20th century and how they should be considered again today in conjunction with food banks as a way to combat food poverty and obesity. There are already many community kitchen projects organically springing up, including the brilliant FoodCycle who now have 20 sites over the UK. They are always looking for volunteers in the kitchen, and also for fundraising and PR/marketing, so take a look if you'd like to help out.
