Come and celebrate the opening of The People's Cafe with The People's Pop Up, with celebrity chef Arthur Potts Dawson!
Our fresh spring flavours will reflect these fresh beginnings. With a secret four course menu, including recipes inspired by Arthur's book 'Eat Your Veg', and exceptional wines available to buy, this is an event not to miss.
As well as a beautiful four course menu, the ticket price includes a welcome cocktail.
As part of this event, we will also be launching The People's Chef: an opportunity for a budding chef to join Arthur Potts Dawson in the kitchen for a day to learn from one of the masters of the London Food Scene. To apply, please check out further details on the Twitter @TPSLondon and Facebook pages and tell us why you should be offered this opportunity.
House Rules: All profits from the event will go to supporting The People's Supermarket, a non-profit food cooperative on Lamb's Conduit Street and The People's Cafe.
The People's Supermarket is based on three beliefs - community, sustainability and local sourcing. We seek to create a supermarket that challenges the status quo and champions the needs of the local community by offering high quality, healthy food at reasonable prices. In January 2014 we opened The People's Cafe near Kings Cross based on the same principles. The space doubles up as a beautiful evening venue, perfect for our first People's Pop Up.
The People's Pop Up brings together people who want to eat delicious food - much of it local, sustainable and from small producers.
Our first People's Pop Up will feature celebrity chef Arthur Potts Dawson, one of the founders of The People's Supermarket. Arthur has been cooking for twenty one years. He started with a three year apprenticeship with the Roux brothers, worked with Rowley Leigh at Kensington Place for two years, with Rose Gray & Ruth Rogers at the River Café for four years, Hugh Fernley-Whittingstall and Pierre Khoffman both for a year. He worked as Head Chef at the River Café and went on to work as executive head chef for Jamie Oliver's Fifteen Restaurant.
This is an opportunity to meet Arthur, who appears on the television show Market kitchen every week, is a guest chef on Saturday cooks, writes for the Guardian food/travel section and has worked on three shows for BBC Radio 4 food programme.
With spring here, Arthur will be focussed on fresh flavours using inspiration from his book 'Eat Your Veg' to create a secret menu (vegetarian option available). With four courses, they'll also be plenty of time to sample exceptional wines under a canopy of lanterns and meet other members and friends of The People's Supermarket.
With only fifty places available this one-off event is sure to sell out quickly, so we suggest early booking.
