Global Feast is… another way to celebrate the Olympics though an extraordinarygourmet travel around the world. Not in 80 days, in 20 dinners, each dedicated to a different country and all this by staying in Stratford not so far from the most famous stadium of the moment. Each menu is created by amazing chefs, talented and passionate, with hundreds of anecdotes to share. Some of them you may already know – Ms Marmite Lover and Anna Hensen for example – others you will simply adore and will want to check out their supperclub as soon as you can. Each bite proves succulent and suprising – refined, intense. A feast. Steamed rice cakes topped with a crunchy turnip chutney and sesame seeds. Eggs, infused with soy sauce, flavoured with fish. Cornfritters with a chilli and lemon sauce. The alliance of beetroot and orange oil. Meatballs enhanced with star anise and cardamom. It is also sitting around a 15 metre table, cut in the shape of the world, its cities shining at night, decorares with flowers made of maps – a very unique setting. It is leaving enchanted and feeling like selecting a destination randomly on a glove, packing your suitcase and going there.
From July 25 to August 13, each dinner being dedicated to a country – don’t miss it, this is THE pop-up of the summer!
A book to devour, just in case rain would decide to stay a little longer. No story but a collection of tips and anecdotes by Lucia Van der Post, one of England’s most elegant women. It reads like a conversation, offering the experience of a whole life on fashion, beauty, how to pack a case or amaze your guest with a wonderful dinner, even how to juggle work and family. Nothing complex, just pure good sense – things you can’t seee for yourself, sometimes because tou are so busy trying to keep everything together. This will save you so much time, take you to a different twist of your routine, give you a different angle. Oh and there are plenty of fab addresses in there too.

The Marvellous Dorians is a passionate comical duo. Spontaneous and inventive, they just will make you laugh to tears.
Vogue fell in love with them, judging they definitely are people set to define the next generation - no less. Time Out clapped them aloud. Good looking with a sombre heart – shazam, their fan club compares them to the irresistible Dorian Gray, and the idea is adopted. Contronted to adversity, Emeka and Luke took their weapon out: their sense of humour. They juggle, they tickle, they hypnotize you with their good words. A strange match: one has a lawyer degree, writes poetry and knows how to subtilise a sewing machine (don’t ask). The other is an hyponchondriac yet smokes Malboro Lights, and tried to hide his public school accent with Jamie Oliver’s. Those two are bound to suprise you.
And because the whole world can be a stage and that this two artists have a thousand passions, they will soon jump in a new adventure: a supperclub for two nights only June 02 and 03. Dinner will be served with a salad of smiles, spiced with laughter,promising a trifle of good times… It’s an amazing occasion to meet those rising stars. Underground lovers, get hold of your tickets quick, there will only be 50 available per evening.
