Fresh Thinking Café by Hotpoint and Jamie Oliver

Based on the top 10 most wasted foods in the UK with the most common be bread, salad and vegetables Jamie Oliver and Hotpoint have teamed up to show people that you can make meals out of left overs.

Hotpoint and Jamie Oliver, want to get the nation thinking differently about the food in their fridges, as there is far too much waste.

Diners will be able to enjoy a tasting menu of delicious dishes, inspired by the most commonly top 10 wasted ingredients in the UK.

At the end diners can “pay-as-they-feel” for the dishes, with all proceeds being donated to FoodCycle, a charity fighting food waste, food poverty, and loneliness through community projects up and down the country (Donation suggestions £5 – £50 per person)

Hotpoint and Jamie Oliver hope that people will leave with a Fresh Thinking way of how to use forgotten food in their kitchens.

Book a table via the Hotpoint website via here.

However if you are unlucky not to get a spot the café will also be accepting walk in’s on those days.

When: 10th – 11th October 2018

Where: 133-135 Bethnal Green Road, East London

Tesco Finest Cafe

This mid October for a few days foodie fans of Tesco and Bompas and Parr can experience a world of food in a different way for they have both curated together to fuse the world of food, art, design and theatre together.

Why though has Tesco and Bompas & Parr come together?

It is because Tesco is celebrating it’s 20th anniversary.  20 years ago it bought to the UK it’s first premium, own-brand food range Tesco Finest.

The edible exhibition allows food lovers to travel through six different experiences that will take the concept of a tasting menu to a new, fully sensorial and interactive level.  From venturing down a Himalayan salt mine to embarking on a foraging expedition to play a wild mushroom symphony and even watching a edible rainbow come to life.

If you are more of a drink lover though guests will love stepping into a Tesco Finest Vintage Grand Cru Champagne bottle in which they will experience a unforgettable time in catching floating edible champagne bubbles in their mouths before enjoying a refreshing glass of bubbly. Did you know that every bottle of champagne has 250 million bubbles inside.  

Tickets for this event are free and can be booked in advance at tesco.com/devour


Last Nights of Havana

Last Nights of Havana

Last Nights Of Havana will coming to London 19 October bringing nights of celebration of rum, jazz, dance and decadence to London.

Inspired by the famously opulent playground that was 1940s and 50s pre-revolution Havana, the re-imagined Quayside Bar at Tobacco Dock will evoke a time when rum cocktails, cigars, Cadillacs and unbridled glamour were the order of the day.  Last Nights of Havana will run for a limited number of nights between October and May 2019.

Created by Andy Mil and Elliot Ball from Cocktail Trading Company, a cocktail menu featuring a contemporary take on Cuban classics will be expertly made at the large island bar, while the smell of Cuban street food fills the air, and Cuban cigar sellers make their way through the crowds.

Cuban-born Musical Director Oreste `Sambroso’ Noda, the man behind London’s famous Sambroso Sambroso will lead the band nightly. The music at Last Nights Of Havana will draw inspiration from Cuba’s famous sounds, and combine them with a contemporary London soundtrack, turning up the tempo as the night goes on.

A unique and inspired addition to London’s going out scene, Last Nights Of Havana will soon become the destination for those looking for great cocktails, great music and glamorous escapism – from post work drinks and large groups to special occasions, rum tasting master-classes and dates with a difference.

Divine Proportions

Do you love banquets?
Do you love cabaret?
Do you love gods and goddesses?
Then you’ll love Divine Proportions

Divine Proportions is a new, deliciously divine theatrical dinner cabaret from Shotgun Carousel, based on the story of Dionysus, God of Pleasure and Mischief.

This is an erotic immersive five 3 hour dining banquet experience full of sensuality, sexuality and thrilling hedonistic rituals.

Divine Proportions reimagines the story of the God (and sometimes Goddess) of theatre, dance and ritual ecstasy. Guests should prepare to be led on a journey into the heart of heaven and back through the depths of hell, by your mercurial host Dionysus, along with their cohort of cult priestesses; a cavorting band of circus sirens and party starters.

Expect course after course of heavenly dishes, cocktails of milk and honey shared with masked merrymakers and magical creatures, sightings of satyrs and an after party in The Underworld.
