About New & Noteworthy in London
One of the latest and greatest London trends is the explosion of street food markets and supper clubs, which often pop up in random and rundown locations, or people's private homes--specifically during weekday lunchtimes, weekend evenings and during the summer months.
Warehouses, side streets, abandoned parking lots, railway arches, and construction sites awaiting redevelopment all attract street food vendors that serve affordable taste sensations. Some of the best include Whitecross Street in Clerkenwell, Exmouth Market in Farringdon, Borough Market in Borough, Broadway Market in Hackney, Kerb in Kings Cross, Red Market in Shoreditch and Street Feast (a night market that changes locations).
As for supper clubs, which is based on the concept of strangers cooking for strangers in their home, a few of the best (that actually publicise themselves) include Clandestinos, Popup Barbados, Parkholme Supper Club and Zoe’s Ghana Kitchen. You can find more supper club events on websites such as www.londonpopups.com and www.melba.co.
Other concepts that are building momentum and causing excitement for young and old people alike include peer-to-peer teaching and learning as well as live-well and DIY (do it yourself) enterprises. Recommended organisations and start-ups that run classes and workshops include the School of Life, The Amazings, We Are Nana, The Goodlife Centre, I Knit London, and Food at 52 cookery school.
