Come join us for our 2nd Latitudinal Charity Street Party, which - with a whopping 300 people (rather than the mere 200 last time - check out its VIDEO ;) ). - will be even more epic.
Come share the longest table you've ever sat
We are renting 300 tables, chairs, cutlery, china and glassware to create the longest single table Shepherds Bush has ever seen - running right down the middle of a beautiful, quiet leafy street, like a diving board into our dreams ;)
Everyone simply brings a dish, Latitudinal Cuisine style: http://bit.ly/latcuistreetparty2017
This year, the theme is SUMMER DREAM: your idea of ideal street party food (enough to feed 4).
Perhaps it'll be something you dream of from y...
--BYOB: bring whatever booze or drink you fancy (min 1 bottle/person); please bring water if you will need it.
--BYOF: Everyone cooks and brings a dish from the country above - enough to feed 4 people
--Presentation: please bring elegant dishware rather than plastic tupperware to make our collective spread look as good as possible
--Cooking: please bring your dishes prepared
--Refrigeration is not possible for 300 dishes; please plan ahead & bring iceboxes if needed
--Clothing: please come dressed as elegantly as possible - and bring a brolly, just in case.
There will be a few extra treats and surprises, and a swarm of the most wonderful people.
We start at 1.30 pm and aim to wrap up by 5 pm. All are welcome.
If it rains, we have a planB.
This is entirely non-profit & raising money for charity. Once our basic costs (which sadly are unavoidably substantial) are covered, all proceeds will go directly to Foodcycle, the wonderful charity we support, who help reduce food surplus and bring local communities together to share meals; some of them will also be joining us for the afternoon.
--CANCELLATION Policy: NO REFUNDS WILL BE PROCESSED FOR THIS EVENT. www.bit.ly/latcuirules
We meet locally and eat globally - meeting those before us, to discuss the world beyond us.
Latitudinal Cuisine is our collective ongoing project to uncover the secrets of this Earth (whether its food or its people) and to learn about this great salad bowl of a city we call London.
It's our way to meet great new people and overcome the social distance that too often impedes on modern city life.
Latitudinal Cuisine is an open community of people exploring the world of global food and local friendships.
We tour the food of the world in a year - 360 degrees in 360 days, a degree a day - collectively cooking from the longitude corresponding to the day of the year.
No event is ever the same.
Everyone brings food, talks about it, talks with others, and shares what they brought.
---What do you eat?---
Everything, as long as it’s from the right area. We also devour the stories that helped make the meal.
---Who can come?---
Anyone - as long as they bring food, talk and participate.
---How does the dinner work?---
You book, cook, and turn up with your dish, which you present and share. You get to eat a great 3 (or more)-course meal composed of what everyone brought.
---How can I host?---
