This Hallowi'ne the Grape Night In ghouls are bringing out the odd, unusual and downright weird to a wine and gruesome cheese tasting fit for a zombie. Trick or treat your tastebuds in the dark and mysterious D'Vine cellar, just a creep up from Clapham North underground.
Tickets are £25 and there will be 2 sittings. Tastings start at 7pm (when the undead awaken) or 9pm (after the zombies have dined), where the ghouls will try to trick you with scary stories, but it you're clever enough to withstand the hoax you'll score a treat...
This trick or treat tasting will last approx. 1.5 hours, and inc. wine & cheese tastings. Wines will be available for purchase after the tasting. Please arrive on time and tables will be required back at the end of the tasting."

Ben Spalding's 'Stripped Back' & 'No Rules' Residency in Kingsland Road, Haggerston


Chef Ben Spalding, who has been organising pop-ups of various forms for the past few years, has taken over at the 260-264 Kingsland Road disused office space (home of 'Fairground' over the summer) for a series of events, including 'Stripped Back' - fine dning without pretensions - and 'No Rules' - dinners cooked in front of you - plus a 'Decade Dinner' for the 1970s and for the 1980s.  Full dates and details here


Stripped Back
"StrippedBack is affordable, accessible, delicious dining without any pretension. It is one of many different concepts created and ran by Ben Spalding, It has been hugely successful and celebrated in the 15 months since broadway market in Hackney, east London with just 4 plastic stools bought from the local shop, some very basic pre prepared infusions or cured fish or meat and some raw vegetables, equipment consisted of a mandolin, a blowtorch, a peeler and a knife, it was all transported 60 miles by train from kent to London in a suitcase every saturday morning at the crack of dawn, over time it has naturally grown into a unique, different and refined take on eating out, mainly featuring in the street food scene."

When - Thursdays & Fridays from 16th October (barring the 'No Rules' Fridays listed below)

Tickets - £39 from Eventbrite here

No Rules
""No Rules is an idea that first came about in late 2013, I wanted to cook the style of food I was cooking when at Roganic, then that pub in North London & push it further, with more experimental ideas which have substance, be able to tell stories about my supliers & stories about our exploits in chasing creativity in cooking and makes my the diners think more about what & how they eat."
This not only puts my reputation on the line but provides what I believe is an unexplored personal experience & meal to a group of strangers, we are on the table just a few feet from you, we prepare, create & cook the entire menu on the spot in front of you, it is almost like being able to sit on a busy chef's section in a restaurant & watch them prepare everything. It’s the ultimate eating experience with complete honesty & trust from the guest to me & me to the guest which I believe will break new ground in eating food"

When - Fridays - 24th October, 1st November, 19th December

Tickets - £85 from Eventbrite here

Where - 260-264 Kingsland Road, London E8 4DG

Night Tales' Street Food Market 2014 in Old Street


Night Tales, one the most popular events last year on this site, is back for winter 2014 from 7th November for seven weeks, in the RED Market site on Old Street.  Expect street food (inc Patty & Bun, and Morty & Bob's), bars, cocktails, DJs, fire pits and more.

"For its latest incarnation, it’s moving down the road from Dalston to a 10,000 square foot car park in Shoreditch where it’ll be taking over two floors and filling them with bars, gardens, log fires, private chalets and, of course, enough street food to ensure you’re well and truly stuffed.
Night Tales vetrans Patty & Bun will be selling their fine wares from a new swanky 1987 Grumman Olson Kurbmaster van, complete with full-size grill, smoker and DJ booth. There will also be guest appearances from Pitt Cue Co, for what’s billed as ‘filthy sexy meaty concoctions’. Yes please. Foodie newbies include Rum Kitchen who’ll be serving up Caribbean soul food, Dalston pizza playas Voodoo Ray’s and grilled cheese toasty heaven from Morty and Bob’s.
To wet your whistle, you can head to the hot cocktail bar hut and the long bar serving craft beers and limited edition ales. The DJ line-up is still to be confirmed but for the launch weekend, disco crew Low Life will be on to the decks to get the party started. And thanks to a canopy over the top, you’ll be cosy, dry and happy whatever the weather"

When - Thurs - Sat, from 7th November, for seven weeks

Where - 288-299 Old Street, London, EC1V 9DP

The Bowler's Street Food Residency at The Horse and Groom in Shoreditch


The Bowler aka Jez Felwick, one of London's most established street food traders (he's written a cookbook too) has started his first pub residency, at The Horse and Groom in Curtain Road, Shoreditch.  Open from 12 noon until 2pm, and then from 6.30pm - 9.30pm every weekday, and on Saturday evenings too, he will serve from the delicious menu below.  Takeaway also available.


"The Bowler, London’s original meatball food trucker, opens Street Food Kitchen on Wednesday 24th September in the newly refurbished Horse & Groom Pub, Curtain Road, Shoreditch.   It will run into Spring 2015.

The venue aims to bring many elements from street to static site, with takeout food being ordered and collected from the open plan kitchen counter to maintain face to face service, with seating in the upstairs dining bar – all served up with founder Jez Felwick’s signature wink.
People can also eat and order downstairs, which also includes the DJ Bar Snacks counter.  Here the theatre of the street exists with a small service station set up in the DJ booth serving smaller bites including ‘Nacho Balls’ and sliders.
The Bowler wants to bring the camaraderie of the street scene to The Horse & Groom and will be lining up Street Food Kitchen Takeovers with fellow truck traders, including Anna Maes Mac ‘n’ Cheese, Luardos Mexican and Spit ‘n’ Roast, there will also be a small Street Food Pantry selling condiments that started out being sold on the street including The Ribman & Prairie Fire BBQ sauces, as well as Popcorn Kitchen."
