The London Evening Standard has launched the London Food Month, occurring this month and stretching across the capital city. The festival will focus on everything from the culturally rich and ultra-contemporary street food, to fine restaurant dining, and raise awareness of food waste, hunger and the event’s official partner charity: The Felix Project.
The star of this delicious show is the Night Market, an outdoor dining experience like no other – starting 7th June, it will be located in Kensington’s Perks Field and will stretch over 12 consecutive nights. 50 food stalls from London’s famed and favourite restaurants, food trucks and street vendors, alongside DJs, entertainers and an outdoor cinema will give visitors a true taste of eclecticism.
Internationally renowned chefs will join the line-up and provide exclusive cooking events and talks. First of the lengthy list is Massimo Bottura, chef and owner of Francescana in Modena, Italy and founder of Food for Soul who commented: “London is a hub of gastronomy and one of my favourite cities. Thanks to the partnership with the Felix Project, we will be able to create healthier meals from humble ingredients for those who need it most.”
“We’ll be eating the entire world, in one city, 24 hours a day. London loves food and we’re here to prove it.” Grace Dent, Creative Director of London Food Month
