In the last five years the London food scene has gone from strength to strength with new and exciting events constantly happening, London Food Month’s Night Market was another great example. With this culinary bonanza plonking itself right down in the Queens front garden and filling it stalls with the most influential chefs & vendors in London, it really was a must see.
To add to the excitement we got word from our favourite Thai boys that they will be taking a stall and cooking in Angela Hartnett’s kitchen as ‘special guest’ for the opening night of the festival.
It’s great to see Paul & Richie getting recognition for their hard work and getting into Angela's kitchen is an incredible accolade.
We couldn’t resist taking a trip to get our hands on some of the incredible food and drinks that the market was serving up. With it being in one of the most iconic settings in London you will not be surprised to hear it pulled in the big guns. Westfield produced an outdoor cinema, there was a massive indoor/outdoor bar area, Angela's Kitchen and a whole host of food vendors, alongside this there was drinks from Cobra Beer serving up the usuals as well as a new non alcoholic and gluten free beer and Ketel one Vodka offering an immersive cocktail making experience.
