Jamie Oliver's Drinks Tube's Cocktail Request Week at Old Street Station


Next week, from Monday to Friday, people from Jamie Oliver's Drinks Tube - the drinks counterpart to Food Tube - will be popping up at Old Street Underground Station to demonstrate how to make cocktails.

Note that there's nothing to buy and that they are severely restricted on handing out alcohol, but people can come down and watch what's happening and please make a request for a new cocktail through social media using the hashtag #CocktailRequest

You can suggest your own, or a favourite ingredient for inspiration, and if you're chosen they will make it.

"Next week Jamie Oliver’s Drinks Tube is setting up shop in Old Street Tube Station in East London for a special week of cocktail making.
They will be taking requests from passers by, Twitter and Facebook followers, and a few choice celebrities, then knocking them up throughout the day. To get involved and get your cocktail made just use the hashtag #cocktailrequest to send us a picture of your favourite ingredient, or a scene that you think might inspire our mixologists. They’ll then knock it up and the video uploaded to Drinks Tube as soon as it’s ready.
If we pick your picture not only will you get a mention and a cocktail recipe, we’ll even name the cocktail after you. If you’re in the vicinity you could even come down and watch it being made and filmed – on the day we’ll have lots of special guests, including Simone Caporale, DJ BBQ, Gennaro and Jonny from the Craft Beer Channel."

When - Monday 28th July - Friday 1st August
9am - 7pm

Where - Inside Old Street Station, EC1Y 1BE

Churn2's Liquid Nitrogen Ice Cream Pop-up at Somerset House


This summer Churn2, from Cambridge, Massachusetts, is setting up in a shipping container at Somerset House to serve their on-demand ice creams, made with liquid nitrogen.  No heavy duty freezers, just ice creams made for you in a number of flavours while you wait.


"This summer, London welcomes Churn2, the modern shipping container turned liquid nitrogen ice cream pop-up laboratory, which will be situated in The Edmond J. Safra Court of Somerset House until 30th August. 
Churn2 is the world’s first mobile liquid nitrogen ice cream shop from American foodie entrepreneur Ash Chan, who uses the cryogenic freezing process to create on-demand ice creams that are not only a visual spectacle but are also dense, smooth and creamier in texture than regular ice cream. The flash-frozen ice cream is available in small (£2.50) or regular (£3.70) and uses fresh ingredients to create a weekly changing menu of two options. Creative flavour combinations include strawberry cheesecake, lemon and basil, and chocolate coconut.
Crossing the Atlantic for the first time from its Boston home, the modified shipping container will arrive in all its striking orange detailed glory. The container will open up at the front to reveal a serving hatch lined with three nitro mixers, which emit a theatrical smoky vapour while your ice cream is made. The process eliminates the use of heavy duty freezers making the container an environmentally friendly addition to the London food truck scene.
The iconic courtyard of Somerset House will be home to the ice cream pop up throughout the summer months. Operating from 11am – 6pm on weekdays and 11am – 7pm on weekends, Churn2 will extend its opening hours to 8.30pm during Somerset House’s summer evening events programme, which include the Film4 Summer Screen, during which a special popcorn flavoured ice cream will be served."

When - Monday 21st July - 31st August
11am – 6pm on weekdays and 11am – 7pm on weekends, or later when events are happening

Where - The Edmond J. Safra Court, Somerset House, Strand, WC2R 1LA

Guest Projects' Artist Dinner for Marcel Duchamp, near Broadway Market


The Artist Dining Room is a regular event that celebrates artists through food.  On Friday 1st August it will honour French artist Marcel Duchamp with a dinner that includes dishes inspired by his work, created by guest chefs Banquet and artist Doug Fishbone.  Tickets are just £36.50 for this very memorable night.

"Yinka Shonibare MBE's project space Guest Projects joins creative forces with London-based chefs to hold a series of sensory tingling supper clubs which will be much more than just a feast for the palate, but for the eyes, ears, imagination and beyond. The Artist Dining Room supper club at Guest Projects opens a space where creative minds can engage with the ideas of a well known artist through food. 

Our Summer supperclub holds an evening of Dadaist fantasy, inspired by French artist Marcel Duchamp (along with his alter egos Rrose Sélavy and R.Mutt). Guests will indulge in a French influenced 4-course meal created by Guest Chef BANQUET; taking your palate though an exploration of the world Duchamp's mind for the evening. Guest Host artist Doug Fishbone will lead guests through an evening of humour, satire and performance to uncover the life and works of Duchamp.

Marcel Duchamp was born July 28, 1887, in France. After the sensation caused by �Nude Descending a Staircase, No. 2 (1912), he painted few other pictures. He became famous for his "ready-mades" and heralded an artistic revolution. Associated with the Dadaist and Surrealist movements Duchamp broke down boundaries between works of art and everyday objects. Largely ignored during his lifetime, he was in his 70s when he emerged as master whose entirely new attitude toward art and society changed the future of visual arts.
