Raw food, banquets, Nigerian fusion and Tacos are all expected to pop up somewhere around the capital this Spring. But what really caught our eye was the Asparagasm Vegan & Gluten Feast in Hackney.
It may sound all buckwheat and lentils, but think about it. Once upon a time we thought gluten-free was niche, whacky and would never go mainstream – but …! With the rise in flexitarianism, there’s room for all elements of eating, and that includes vegan. So, on to the feast…
Asparagasm is a regular vegan & gluten-free feast held in Hackney. For April they have a special guest chef from Disappearing Dining Club (who also organised A Very London A Fare in March), plus cabaret entertainment.
"We've room for 60 of you gorgeous munchkins at our 5-course fine dining event when our culinary wizards headed up by guest chef Fredrik Bolin*, Head Chef at Disappearing Dining Club, will create a vegan and gluten-free rainbow from somewhere over in the open kitchen.
We've performance from the bewitching Miss Stephanie Ware and friends, as well as Dark Chocolate Tiffin to sample from the scrumptious vegan and gluten-free Lazy Day Bakery.
Featuring an exclusive menu of mock & cock-tails hand-mixed by Lefti Christodolou, one of London's finest bar tenders, vegan-method wine and beer - Running Duck from Stellar Vineyard and hand-crafted lager from Freedom Brewery - as well as biodynamic champagne and organic British bubbles will also be served.
Relax and come as you are - however should you wish to wear your brains, courage or hearts on your sleeve then fabulous prizes for sartorial creativeness will be bestowed.
