We round up the best foodie events happening in London this week
It's Monday 11 May and we're back to five full working days. How will we cope? Here's just a few things to make this week brilliant.
Culinary mastermind The Basement Gallery is taking eating on the tube seriously with its new supper club. Its flagship dining experience takes place at the Walthamstow Pumphouse Transport Museum in a decommissioned 1967 Victoria Line carriage. Of course it does. Tickets start at £40 for a multi-course tasting menu but sell out quickly. In which case, you can always visit its Rootdown Residency in Clapton.
Book breakfast in bed
OK, so this one is actually next week, but we thought we'd get you ahead of the game because we're pretty sure it's going to sell out. IKEA is launching a new pop-up in Leonard Street where you'll be served a traditional Swedish breakfast in bed. Email IKEAbreakfastinbed@hopeandglorypr.com for your slot between Monday 18 May to Wednesday 20 May, 7am-12pm. We'll definitely see you there.
Dine on an edible story
Brilliant company Edible Stories has joined forces with private members’ club LIBRARY for a theatrical pop-up. This week it's Matilda, an intricately designed dining experience that will be bringing the story to life through food. There's even a shape-shifting cocktail concoction they claim will cause your mouth to tingle and the room the light up. Set menu from £45 for four courses.
It's vegan?! You'd never guess you can make your own delicious ice-cream that's completely vegan. Let's pretend that summer's here and get cracking in the kitchen.
It's rhubarb time!
This stalky red champion has once again rolled round into season. Time to crack out that recipe and celebrate with a magnificent rhubarb crumble.
