You've got to hand it to Hawksmoor - when they say they're bringing a top brigade together for their annual Dream Team Dinner they've really nailed it this year.
The five course feast in aid of Action Against Hunger has just announced its line-up for 2019 and it sounds unmissable.
Kicking off the evening they'll have Kyseri and OKLAVA’s Head Chef Selin Kiazim, winner and star of BBC 2 series, The Great British Menu, creating a selection of canapés. Following her
You may be the kind of person for whom the very idea of Hyde Park Winter Wonderland is worse than spending the holidays with your in-laws, in which case there's nothing to see here. If, however, like us, anything that combines rollercoasters with hot toddies, more churros than you can shake a candy cane at AND covers it all with a sprinkling of fake snow and Christmas cheer is just the thing for you, then read on.
In previous years, it's
Following on from their TacOver series, in which chefs from all over the world popped up at their gaff and did some amazing taco mashups, the guys at breddos are doing a special seasonal version.
Their Christmas TacOver is going to be a one off tasting menu with TABASCO® Sauce and they've lined up some cracking partners for it. Joining Nud in the kitchen in Clerkenwell will be:
Hot Dinners rounds up some of the best food and restaurant pop-ups and events around town at the moment.
Who ate all the pies? You if you manage to get tickets to Dominique Ansel Bakery London's Pie Night. The hook - unlimited slices of pie.
As New Yorkers would tell you, this is one of those events you'll need to put an alert in your calendar for. Ansel has been running it there for the past four years and apparently in NYC tickets sell out in two minutes.
For £42 you can eat as many slices of the ten different pies on offer as you can manage in

If you're a fan of Japanese food and drink, then we can't think of a better event to put in your diary than The Joy of Sake. For one evening only, London's Barbican Centre becomes a focus for beginners and enthusiasts alike to try a whopping 478 sakes from 192 breweries across Japan. And if that on its own isn't enough to get you booking, 14 top London restaurants are going to be there too, putting

Whatever your brunch preference, be it bottomless and boozy or smoothie-bowl-themed, there's no denying that London is home to some seriously good, tremendously varied breakfasts. In fact, the biggest problem is finding the energy to get out of bed and go and try them all.
Now, the good news is you'll be able to sample a big range of brunches all in one go at London's first brunch festival, hosted at the
Updated 7/8/18 with new date and line-up
This is not a drill. Repeat, this is not a drill. Put a 'meeting' in your google calendar, ward off any colleagues with an 'I'm far too busy to talk right now' look and get ready to buy your tickets to this year's Auction Against Hunger.
It's one of our favourite events in the London foodie calendar, supporting incredibly important charity work, and this year's line-up looks unmissable. Taking place in
London already has a load of new terraces and outside spaces this summer, but Bourne and Hollingsworth have several killer USPs that they're banking on to make their new Hoxton summer experience, Beautiful Allotment, a must-visit. To start with, guests who book their summer countryside takeover of the gardens at The Geffrye Museum will be able to kick things in proper Countryfile style, getting picked up in a tractor pulling a vintage trailer complete
Shoreditch's Vegan Nights market is set to go next level for August as part of a new vegan lifestyle festival at The Old Truman Brewery. Running for the whole of the month, V For says they're aimed at vegans, vegetarians and the V curious (their term, not ours) with fitness, shopping and food events running throughout the festival.
On the food front, in addition to Vegan Nights' usual traders there are a couple of interesting new folk. Key among those is
London Wine Week will endeavour to keep Londoners' glasses filled with great wine. There are masterclasses, tastings and more - and this year you'll find the festival hub in Southwark in Flat Iron Square.
Now here's a festival we can really get behind. If you're wondering about whether to stay in town over the long Easter weekend, then the return of the Homerton International Festival Of Beer and Bar Snacks might swing the decision for you.
It all takes place at The Adam & Eve pub, where they've handed over their kitchen to Smoking Goat Shoreditch and a specially selected 100% vegan pop up who will be working with their own kitchen team Rockadollar. Smoking Goat
Cricket and dining come together at Lord's for the Lord's Dining Club - which has some pretty impressive names lined up. It's been put together by Andrew Fishwick (previously behind The Truscott Arms and Truscott Cellar) and will see them taking over the Lord's historic dining room.
The names involved - who have nine Michelin stars between them - are:
If you've been considering leaving town for Easter weekend, we may have news that'll make you change your mind. Returning for a third instalment is Cheese Town - the food festival (not to be confused with the dire Giant Cheese Board which broke the internet just before Christmas).
Moving from Brixton to Flat Iron Square in Borough the event features a range of street food traders, all serving up something deeply cheesy. So there's:
You've got to hand it to Action Against Hunger, the folk at that charity really know how to put an interesting sounding event together. And they usually have some top restaurant partners in whatever they do. So we're not that surprised to hear about their upcoming Moveable Feasts.
If you've ever been on one of the London Restaurant Festival's Gourmet Odysseys, this is along similar lines although you'll be walking between each restaurant - just as well, really.
