Longest Tasting Menu
Fancy a bite of the world’s longest tasting menu? You’re in luck if you think you can stomach it, as foodie explorers unearthed are serving up samples of their Guinness World Record attempt – a whopping 193 courses, each of them for a different country – at a pop-up in Hackney this weekend.
The record attempt takes place Thursday, where there’ll also be a vote on the best dishes. The winning 10 morsels will then be offered to punters during hour-long seating slots on Friday and Saturday.
Thankfully for your waistbands, each dish is bite-sized. Although there’s always the chance you could end up feasting on grasshoppers from Congo and bird’s milk from Romania. Yum. Tickets are £10; time slots 6pm-10pm. Tweet your interest and preferred seating time to @foodsunearthed.
New Gin Garden
Forget beer gardens – this summer, top-notch Docklands pub The Gun is opening a gin garden on its sun deck, with astro turf, deck chairs, picnic blankets and ping pong giving it that classic English country feel. Open for ad hoc events through summer. Follow @thegundocklands for updates.
Yankee Brews and BBQ
Date for the diary: The White Horse in Parsons Green hosts an American Beer Festival July 4-7, with microbreweries including Brooklyn (pictured), Flying Dog and Stone all represented, plus hog roast and a barbecue cooking up American classics. We recommend!
