"Popular pop-up chef Zoe Adjonyoh is bringing her exciting contemporary twist on traditional Ghanaian flavours to South London with a two month Ghana Kitchen residency at The King & Co pub in Clapham.
Open every day throughout April and May, visitors to Zoe’s residency will enjoy a specially created new menu of Ghanaian small plates, including jollof chicken skewers, griddled mackerel fillets in chilli lemon and garlic, and okra tempura with homemade shito sauce.
At weekends Zoe is offering a range of hearty brunch dishes like spiced black eyed beans with fried eggs, sweet plantain pancakes, and a signature ZGK breakfast burrito; alongside a lunch “Chop” bar menu that gives the opportunity to sample a selection of Ghanaian classics in a single platter. Zoe’s unique Sunday roasts are also not to be missed, such as tender Lamb Palaver (a five hour slow cooked hoggat shoulder with baby spinach and ground melon seed stew).
Zoe’s Ghana Kitchen is not just a ‘pop-up’ restaurant - it’s a food event: creating a look and feel from its Ghanaian roots that merges with a contemporary dining experience. Zoe’s journey began in the Hackney supper club scene before taking her modern homespun twist on classic Ghanaian flavours to pop-ups across London, Berlin and Russia. Zoe has also showcased her critically acclaimed street food at prominent venues including Bestival, The Feast Collective at Camp Bestival and Diesel’s pop-up store on Regent’s Street."

Happy Endings' 'Month of Sundaes' Dessert-Only Pop-ups in Dalston


Happy Endings, Terri Mercieca's 5 course, dessert-only supper club concept launched last year, and returns this April for a 'Month of Sundaes' - 4 Sundays in April celebrating desserts, kicking off with a chocolate special on Easter Sunday.  You're not going to want to miss these!


"Every Sunday in April, Happy Endings Dessert Nights are in residence at Restaurant Bar Pond Dalston NHC with A Month of Sundaes, a sophisticated five-course dessert night of decadent fun with hints of silliness. There will be a new menu each week, which of course includes an original new ice cream Sundae.
Chocolatier and pastry chef Terri Mercieca, AKA Fraise Sauvage, is picking up her chocolate tools to kick off this new series of dessert nights. 
First up we’re celebrating all things CHOCOLATE on Easter Bank Holiday Weekend, an original 5-course dessert menu featuring specially selected artisan and single origin chocolates from Original Beans. All of that goodness includes a cocktail aperitif, with optional wine pairing. The bar stays open til’ late with guest DJ Faded Glamour, so stick around and join the party!
It’s a chocolatiers favourite time of year! So this Easter Sunday, come and join us for an alternative way to spend the chocolate holiday.
------
Each following Sunday, a new five course dessert menu is revealed, with influences ranging from world travels, springtime, and trashy fun, and ice cream sundaes! 
Bubbles, wine and digestifs available by the glass, bottle, or special pairing menu selected by artist and wine specialist Kirsty Tinkler, celebrating small organic and biodynamic wine producers. Again, our cocktail bar is open til’ late for all you libertines.
We won’t kill you with too much sugar or heavy puddings, expect a well thought out and perfectly balanced evening of deliciousness.
Forget the main course, get your dessert on!
Perfect for date night, Mothers Day, and Easter treat, fun times, just because, for chocoholics, and those not bothered with the first course, join us for a series of Springtime Sundays."

The Billingsfield Kitchen's 3 Night Pop-up at Beehive Place in Brixton


On 9th - 11th April The Billingsfield Kitchen is taking over Beehive Place in Brixton for 3 dinners.  Beehive Place is a real find - a very funky loft space hidden away just 2 minutes from Brixton tube, and Billingsfield are going to serve you a fantastic dinner.  This one's sure to sell out, so don't leave it too late to get your tickets...

"The Billingsfield Kitchen was established by Matt Bushnell, manager at 8 Hoxton Square restaurant. He has teamed up with Lee Skeet, former head chef of michelin starred Hedone who comes with a colourful history in many of London's finest restaurants having worked with the likes of Tom Aikens, Nuno Mendes, Marcus Wareing and Gordon Ramsay.
We believe sharing food makes a meal… We want people to try many different flavours and get together with old and new friends to share the experience.
Lee, born and bred in Devon, loves the sea and brings some unusual and remarkably great seafood matching to the table. Think Barbecued lamb, clams and seaweed. And...with a history in kitchens like his, you know it will be great. 
Its a BYO event and we are charging £5 per head corkage (included in ticket price) but bring as much booze as you like. As a thank you we will be giving away a free arrival cocktail and we have teamed up with Market Row Wines Brixton where The Billingsfield Kitchen diners get a 10% discount.
So...come join the Billingsfield family in our kitchen and enjoy a night of fantastic food in a hidden Brixton location!"

Brewdog + Dram & Smoke's 'Last Sipper' Easter Sunday Lunch in Shepherd's Bush


The wonderful Dram & Smoke - who ran a Scottish pop-up over the winter - is teaming up with Scottish brewer Brewdog this Easter for a one-off Sunday lunch.  6 courses - including Haggis Bon Bns, and Beer-Battered MarsBar -  paired with 6 Brewdog beers, at the Brewdog bar in Shepherd's Bush for just £35, and then you've very welcome to stay and continue drinking.

"Craft beer powerhouse BrewDog and Scottish pop-up Dram & Smoke are teaming up on the 5th April to offer an Easter Sunday lunch with a hoppy twist. Hosted at BrewDog’s Shepherd’s Bush bar, the £35 ticket gives guests six courses of Scottish fare paired with a tipple chosen by BrewDog’s resident beer experts to perfectly complement each dish. Beer geeks out there will have the BrewDog crew on hand to chat through all the pairings on the day.
The Dram & Smoke lads will be dishing out typically tongue-in-cheek Highland classics. Yes, that does mean that deep-fried Mars Bar gets a look-in when dessert rolls around. A whisky barrel smoker takes centre stage in creating the other dishes on the menu and, although you won’t find the traditional chocolate Easter bunnies here, Little Bunny Foo Foo does make a brief appearance... after being braised in Punk IPA for four hours and served on a tattie scone. Some of the courses will be served up family-style and the menu will focus on bigging up the best of Scottish produce in the company of the best beer going.
An Easter bonus comes in the form of ‘Beer Bingo’ - guess the food and beer pairings correctly before the meal begins and guests will be in with the chance of winning some Easter goodies including tickets to the next Dram & Smoke pop-up project. Post-meal there’s definitely reason for guests to stick around too. Forty of them to be precise - that’s how many taps there are behind the bar. Monday the 6th is a day off school after all…
MENU
Haggis Bon Bons with Buckfast Broon Sauce
Peas & Cheese with Smokin’ Onion Broth
Kedgeree
Slow Cooked Rabbit with Tattie Scone
Smoked Pork Belly, Carrots & Puffed Barley
Dead Pony (Beer) Battered Mars Bar, Cornflake Ice Cream & Irn Bru Drizzle"

When - Easter Sunday, 5th April, 12 noon - 3pm

Where - Brewdog Shepherd's Bush, 15-19 Goldhawk Road, W12 8QQ
