Nowadays it seems the capital can’t get enough of pop-ups and American food – so put the two together and unsurprisingly, you get a sellout weekend like Dante Fried Chicken’s Weekend London Cookout. Hosted over two days (with only two dinner and a lunch service on Sunday), a select number of attendees paid £25 for a gorgeous three-courser courtesy of LA’s Dante Gonzales, the award-winning chef behind Dante Fried Chicken and the Taco Shack that swept into London last September (2011).
Dante’s philosophy is to trot the globe and celebrate good music, art and food – and he didn’t disappoint with this latest ride or fry event. Check out our snaps and thoughts below; we particularly loved the moreish smoked cheese grits with shrimp, the sock-it-to-me-chicken and coconut spice waffles with Apricot glaze – delish!
