A few years ago I began working with Airbnb to deliver a series of events looking at the history of East London over the centuries. Hosted in a house in Spitalfields dating from 1721, these dinners looked at the history of the area in culinary terms over the past 300 years and typically included Russian, Jewish, French & Bangladeshi influences. I also looked at the building’s past identity as The Market Cafe, working a menu around a typical British fry up.
I have since adapted this idea for one off historical Christmas events as well as exploring the history of Soho for Conde Nast Traveller.
Such an awesome experience! Gives a whole new dimension to traveling to actually get to sit and interact with a mix of people--both fellow travelers and locals. Was a real highlight of our time in London! Food was outstanding, too!
An enchanting evening with scrumptious delightful bites. What a beautiful experience. Perfect venue for anyone that wants a unique experience away from the hustle and bustle of London's restaurants. Truly authentic. Emma deserves nothing less than 5 stars!
This was the most utterly lovely evening I could have imagined! The experience takes place in a stunning old house in one of London's most historic areas, whose history Emma brought to life for us in the most fascinating way through her menu. Her food is stunning and she's the most wonderful host. I give this a 15/10 and am even planning to return with family.
An evening with Emma in this atmospheric and unusual room is full of delightful surprises! The welcome is warm, the food is fabulous (tailored to the guests as well as the history the local area ) and the wine is excellent. Emma is genuinely interested in people and their stories and has a gift of weaving the local history into the free flowing conversation around the table. Her ability to put guests at their ease is remarkable, alongside her seamless presentation of a delicious meal!
