The Green Vic 3 Month Pop-up 'Ethical Pub' in Shoreditch


The Green Vic is a 3 month pop-up at 46 Great Eastern Street, Shoreditch, billing itself as the world's most ethical pub.  It has sourced food and drink for ethical suppliers, including charaties and social enterprises, and has vegan bun slingers The Green Grill in the kitchen.  It's a nice relaxing space, and I'm glad to say that it was very busy when I visited.  Go and spend some money there!

"What makes a pub, the world's most ethical pub? Well according to The Green Vic, which is opening in Shoreditch and billing itself as just that, it's "where everything you buy and use has a positive environmental and social impact."
The pub is popping up for three months at Iron Bloom on Great Eastern Street. On their drinks list you'll find libations that, between them, support over 40 individual non-profit charities. So you can sup a pint of Brewgooder craft lager - a non profit which is donating money to clean water projects in Africa or have a G&T using Ginerosity craft gin made by a social enterprise which helps train, educate and mentor the homeless.
For food they've teamed up with vegan chefs The Green Grill serving up all plant-based products like the Red Devil burger pictured which features a sweet potato, red kidney bean and coriander patty with roasted red pepper, rocket, cheez slice and sriracha mayo. And on Saturdays they'll be throwing a Better World Brunch where five pounds of every ticket purchased will go towards charity.
The desire to make a difference also extends to who you'll find working at The Green Vic. One in four of the staff employed will be from a vulnerable or disadvantaged background, such as the homeless and people with disabilities."

The Franquette French Supper Club at Well Street Kitchen in Hackney E9


Franquette is a French supper club created by food photographer Laura Jalbert.  Her third supper club will take place on Friday 28th June 2019 at the Well St Kitchen in Hackney, focussing on food from Laura's homeland, the Camargue region.  Tickets are just £30 and the dinner will consist of four courses (inc a cheese board) plus a welcome drink.  There will also be wines to buy on the night from small French producers.  Sounds excellent!

"Franquette is a French supper club based in London focusing on local ingredients produced by small farmers and on natural wine.
The third edition will take place at Well Street Kitchen (203 Well Street, LONDON E9 6QU) on Friday 28th June from 6pm.
The old-fashioned expression «  à la bonne franquette » means a simple, informal and franc moment. Through these pop-up dinners, we want to share with you the experience of a laid-back dinner with friends in France. Imagine a big table with a red-and-white checked tablecloth, a lot of candles, some French tunes playing in the background, a menu of generous classic dishes to share in a warm atmosphere."

Sainsbury's Meat-Free Pop-up 'Butcher's Shop' in Bethnal Green Road


Sainsbury's is opening a 3 day pop-up meat-free 'Butcher's Shop' for World Meat Free Week from Fri 21st - Sun 23rd June at 146 Bethnal Green Road (the Brick Lane end).  There will be lots of Sainsbury's own meat-free products to buy - many of which you'll be able to taste for free - plus experts on hand to share recipes and tips.

"Sainsbury’s has announced it is opening the UK’s first ever Meat-Free Butchers… just in time for World Meat Free Week.
At first glance, the three day pop-up shop will look no different than a traditional meat butchers. But the sausages hanging in the window will in fact be the entirely vegan ‘Shroomdog’ sausages, and the mince will be made from pea protein.
The in-store butcher will be specially trained for plant-based cooking, sharing recipe advice and tips to help customers get invovled in World Meat Free Week, which encourages people to try more plant-based foods.
Boasting over a dozen high quality fresh foods, customers of the East-End ‘Butchers’ will get to choose a cut of the best boneless bites, before the food is weighed and wrapped as in a traditional store.
From the famous Sweet & Smoky BBQ Pulled Jackfruit and Cumberland Shroomdogs, to the brand new Veggie Ribz and Moroccon Vegbabs, customers can get their hands on these moreish meat alternatives, all for a discounted price.
Hungry visitors will not only be able to buy the plant-based, raw ingredients for their dinner but will also have the chance to taste many of the delicious products entirely for free.
This comes as Sainsbury’s has seen a 24% increase in customers searching for vegan products online, and a 65% increase in sales of plant-based products year-on-year - with sales having doubled in the last year compare to the previous year. However, many are still daunted by the prospect of cooking with plant-based foods.
We have carefully selected the products on offer from the growing range of over 100 plant-based products now available at Sainsbury’s, so customers are in for a real meat-free treat when visiting the butchers!”

When - Fri 21st - Sun 23rd June 2019
11am – 8pm on Friday
10am – 8pm on Saturday and Sunday.

Where - The Meat-Free Butchers, By Sainsbury’s - 146 Bethnal Green Rd, E2 6DG

Rajiv's Kitchen's Nepalese Residency at Great Guns Social near Borough


Rajiv's Kitchen, which went down a storm during a recent resdency in Tooting, is popping up for three weeks at Great Guns Social near to Borough, for three weeks, starting 22nd June 2019, with a ticketed feast, followed by 3 weeks of Tues-Sat service.  I've had Rajiv's food on two occasions now, and have been blown away by the flavours and all round tastiness each time.  Don't miss the momos (see above) but also his other traditional and inventive dishes.  Go!

"Nepal was a remote kingdom – in some ways it still is – that had to rely on what nature provided, sometimes in harsh conditions, and hence innovation and improvisation was required. Nepalese cuisine is an expression of a unique culture. It’s a style of food forged on the roof of the world. It’s not like Indian or Chinese food – the general misconception – but a bit of both and more.
Having been raised in the surroundings of the mountains and rivers in Nepal, Rajiv grew up using fresh herbs and spices for cooking that were often obtained through foraging. He began cooking from a very early age from observing his mum, aunts, uncles and grandma. Rajiv sees cooking as his art, creating delicious menus that will overwhelm your every sense.
Now living in the Big Smoke, Rajiv wants to share his childhood memories of laughing around the table, munching on flavoursome & delicious food with fellow Londoners, the same as he does with his family and friends; hence the birth of Rajiv’s Kitchen."

When - 22nd June - 13th July 2019
Tues- Sat: Lunch and Dinner: 12-3pm / 6-9.30pm

Where - Great Guns Social, 96 Southwark Bridge Rd, SE1 0EF

Tickets for the 4 course feast on Sat 22nd June from here
