London’s foodie revolution shows no signs of slowing down: 2012 has seen an influx of fried chicken joints, Peruvian ceviche, and every other week seems to see another ode to Americana in the form of burger bars and steak places. In celebration of this renaissance comes FEAST, which returns for a Christmas banquet in a disused Royal Mail sorting office.
Yes, it’s another food festival but what food? Stallholders include street food heroes Pizza Pilgrims and Yum Bun. Alternatively some of London’s hottest chefs will there to whet your palate: get that chicken fix with Hix, grab life-changing brownies and tasty pastries at the Lily Vanilli stall, Jewish comfort food will be hand from the Mishkins boys and sloppy burgers from Lucky Chip. And if great food wasn’t enough, popular folk night Woodburner will decamp from their usual Stoke Newington base to provide the soundtrack to your feasting, whilst omnipresent jellymongers Bompas & Parr will be providing ‘a live experiment’ that promises to make an impact. Seems like this will be a feast for all seasons.
FEAST London runs from December 6-9. For more info, visit www.wefeast.co.uk
