May’s food events have plenty to offer
As the weather eventually warms up, so do the offerings for London Foodies. If you’re one of the brave souls to have dusted down their BBQ’s then test your skills at Borough Market’s BBQ demonstration with resident chef Hayley Edwards. Or, if you like someone else to prepare your food for you in the open air, then pop down to the Southbank to sample the delights of the World Street Food Festival. If you prefer the great indoors and would like something more refined, then book a table at the InterContinental London Park Lane for the latest London pop-up with one of South America’s most celebrated chefs, Harry Sasson and his modern Colombian cuisine. What ever try, enjoy and don’t forget to tell us all about it.
