#LondonLovesFood and so foodies are in for a treat this summer with the launch of London Evening Standard Food Month, an annual month-long, city-wide festival celebrating the capital’s diverse and influential food scene.
London Evening Standard Food Month will feature hundreds of events throughout June (1-30), everything from fine dining and street food, to cafés and late-night eateries, and they want food establishments from across London to be involved.
Chefs, restaurants, hotels, food trucks, cafés, bars are being invited to participate in the London Evening Standard Food Month by registering to hold a special event or experience, joining in the celebration of London’s food scene. The full schedule of events and official partners will be featured in the London Food Month programme which will be distributed with the London Evening Standard on 2 May. The deadline for registration is 22 March 2017.
At the heart of the food festival is the intention to reduce food wastage by promoting awareness around food waste and food hunger with The Felix Project; official charity partner for the festival.
Lending their expertise to the festival are renowned food writers #GraceDent and #TomParkerBowles who are creative directors of the festival. London is recognised as a beautiful melting pot of diverse ethnicities and cultural heritage so it would be wonderful to see that reflected in the definitive list of 50 favourite places to eat in London in 2017, being curated by journalist and critic, #FayMaschler.
The centrepiece of London Food Month will be the Night Market, a bustling outdoor dining experience held at an iconic London park over 12 summer nights. Starting on 7 June, the Night Market will feature up to 50 restaurants, food trucks, bars and live entertainment, from the iconic to the up-and-coming. Full details, including the venue and ticket sales, will be announced in April.
