Next Thursday we will be rolling on over to Hampstead to feed hungry guests at the Clockwork Midnight Bazaar. A magical Christmas fair with food, drink, music and shopping to sate even the most voracious festive partygoer, it will be a beautiful night to celebrate the start of advent and get your festive groove on. More importantly, entrance donations go directly to Save The Children’s Ebola fund, so there is no better reason to swing by and get into the Christmas spirit.
We ho-ho-hope to see you there.
Last week we had an inspiring and invigorating day eating ice cream in the Dragon’s Den building (but no Duncan Bannatyne in sight) while feeding the talented and visionary finalists of Ben & Jerry’s social enterprise awards, Join Our Core.
From breakfast through to dinner, it was an amazing event to be part of and we felt grateful and happy to connect with so many likeminded young entrepreneurs from around the world over our coconut blueberry porridge and steaming hot gyoza. We met Jerry (above), ate a tonne of mini Cookie Dough pots, laughed and laughed with our neighbours What the Dickens (also joined by Happy Maki, Beetlejuice and the clever We Walk The Line bicycle coffee stall) and heard some amazing ideas for future world-changing concepts. Little Ben & Jerry’s cows popped up everywhere, and it reminded us of our street food initiation with Choc Star all those years ago – and what happens when you don’t stop eating ice cream all day.
Did we mention Jerry polished off his whole Freedom Box?
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 ♡
