This Sunday past we found ourselves being flung back to school – a hop, skip amd a jump across east London to the Petchey Academy for the launch of the exciting new new Dalston Food Market. With local organic produce, super quality meats, cheeses and bakery, some of our favourite traders and face painting and live music, it was a magical and far-better-than-average Sunday which we look forward to repeating as the weekly shenanigans get underway in the run up to Christmas.
There was also an insane number of puppies boldly gracing the cold winter tarmac which we couldn’t help but snap: give it up for the dope little dogs of dalston.
See you there soon ♡
A couple of weekends ago we joined some of our favourite trader buddies for a magical night at the annual Ally Pally fireworks. The amazing show and inevitable crisp winds that come with it up on that magnificent hill are an exciting harbinger of winter and Christmas and we loved being part of the action and joining the 40 odd thousand people as they knocked back the mulled wine, gyoza and general winter excitement. Even driving around London all day in the van, we tend to tread the same footsteps quite often, and you forget how vast and impressive our city skylines can be – especially from this less-visited viewpoint with the amazing old palace at your back. It is an amazing spot and I don’t think anyone of any age is immune to the wonderment of seeing bursts of colour and light exploding amongst its cloudy skies.
Here are some pics to get you in the mood on a greyer-than-grey November Monday.
A few weeks ago the clever guys at Adaptive Lab turned five (we are not far off, and full of admiration) and we were honoured and excited to be part of the celebrations in the amazing Shoreditch gallery space of our old friends Protein.
We joined Le Bun in feeding hungry revellers our hot homemade creations, and it was an amazing night, full of new friends and faces and inspiring people. We have just got our pictures off our phones to share with you.
Meanwhile we are super excited for the launch of Dalston Food Market tomorrow and working on an exciting new winter menu. Watch this space.
