We don't need much of an excuse to go to Selfridges Food Hall (the St John doughnuts often do the trick) and their Mexican takeover, which has just kicked off a 10 week run, is just another good reason to head down there.
To celebrate the UK year of Mexico, Selfridges will have a whole host of events. Taking place in the Food Hall, where there will be Mexican chefs telling shoppers how to make the best use of the new Mexican goods (there will be 80 new brands on offer) plus:
- A Selfridges pop-up kitchen with Mexican producers and chefs showcasing how to make authentic Mexican dishes
- A Mexican chilli wall showcasing a huge range of chillies
- They'll be stocking Gringa Dairy, an artisan dairy making authentic Mexican cheese in a railway arch in Peckham - including Queso Fresco, Queso Chihuahua and Queso Oaxaca
- Flavourtown will be designing ‘Day of the Dead’ cupcakes and Biscuiteers will have Mexican designed biscuits.
- The people behind Benito's Hat will have a Taqueria stall selling tacos and guacamole
Plus there's more on at Selfridges' restaurants:
- Harry Gordon’s Bar will host a number of mezcal and food pairing evenings and will also have a Mexican menu take-overT
- The Corner Restaurant and Champagne bar will see a number of dinners created by leading Mexican Chefs every Monday and Tuesday for six weeks (book those here)
- Peyote will also take-over the Corner Restaurant for three nights.
The food is available in the Food Hall now and there will be a launch in the Foodhall from 12-9.30pm on 18 March - so head down there to try it out. For more information, check their website at Selfridges.com/mexico
