You know that feeling of being so much more full than at any time during the year at Christmas? Imagine being able to train for that feeling (or should I say “feeding”!) 4 weeks prior, at Thanksgiving. A few days ago we shared some of our recipes and planning ideas and now that the day itself has happened we've definitely got that over-filled feeling...
I've got a confession to make....I was never really brought up on Thanksgiving, despite what my American heritage may lead people to believe. Most of this is down to the fact that I grew up in Nigeria where the concept just doesn't exist. As a result of spending time in the US during my early adult life (I can't say that I am much more of an adult now) I have grown to appreciate this American Holiday and now bug A to ensure that he will be ready for it every November from here on out...
Since I have started to write these #lesswaste blog posts, I have seen a great and gathering interest in the global food system.

We were back on the road again this week, this time in Shoreditch, with another pop-up. We were invited to be a part of a new supper club series hosted at Barber & Parlour, a venue that is part of the very impressive Soho House Group.

It's been an amazing 4 months building and kicking things off at Platform 1 in East Dulwich and we wanted to share a video of how we got started. The team has been amazing with Chloe's leadership and drive spurring on the front of house team of Sarah & Vanessa especially as they move ahead with the new kitchen team, Perilla Dining, for the next 4 months. We have loads more to share but we just have to say thank you for having us.
In the mean time, make sure you book here for our next popup which will be happening on the 11th of November at Barber & Parlour in Shoreditch. Here's a copy of the menu and remember to book soon as tables are going fast! See you there! R.
