African food events, feasts, festivals, carnivals and celebrations; popups supper clubs and lunch clubs; Nigerian, Ghanaian, Senegalese, Sierra Leone/Liberian and Eritrean. I have attended many events in the year 2015. I attended five African pop-ups in November month so I am getting an idea of what is what. The question is what did I learn during my event visits? Well here is my feedback.
So you are an adventurous eater, a foodie now wondering whether you will like other African foods away from the family heritage of say your parents of Nigeria or you have never tried African cooking but you have sampled Indian. Well from Ghanaian street food to Ethiopian restaurants, African food is in London and it’s about to make its mark even bigger and better in November with a number of supper club events. Now this is the best time to try a new cuisine.
Pop Up Africa is an African Inspired Pop-Up events company. The aim of making the African retail and culinary industries more available to a broader audience resulted in the pop up events such as, 'Africa at Spitalfield's,' which after its launch in 2013 has seen stall holders take their brand from the market stall to the shelves of Tesco. Also the newly launched 'African Food and Drink Takeover' as part of Africa Utopia at the Southbank Centre.
