Exploring history through food

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.

More events in the pipeline to be ticketed here.
