Urban Food Fortnight is back for its fifth year, celebrating the best of London’s locally produced food and drink.
The event is organised by London Food Link, an independent network of people, businesses and organisations that promote and campaign for good food in the city, and support Londoners who want to set up food growing spaces.
A number of events, dinners and activities will take place over the fortnight, including a ‘London Grows’ moveable feast at the King’s Cross Skip Garden, and Harvest Stomp, an edible garden feast and free community festival in the Olympic Park.
Chefs and producers around the city will be hosting dinners, including a ‘Local to London’ dinner with chef Oliver Rowe. Rowe was formerly chef patron of Konstam, a restaurant where as many ingredients as possible were sourced from within the M25.
There will be a pop-up kimchi workshop and dinner at The Table Café in Southwark where you can learn how to make your own pickles and enjoy a kimchi burger. Elsewhere, community beer brewing sessions take place, with surplus food pioneers Toast Ale, and Urban Food Award winners, Clarkshaws Brewery.
Urban Food Fortnight takes place 9-25 September. Full details of events are available on the website.
