In the run up to the World Cup this summer there is going to be a series of pop-up restaurants at Bedford and Strand near Covent Garden, each celebrating a one of the eleven cities that are hosting the tournament. It kicks off (so to speak) on Sunday 9th March with 'Manaus', celebrating the city in the Amazon region with lots of local produce. The other events take place every couple of weeks or so, finishing on Sunday 8th June.
"Brazil Pop Up Diner is a series of supper club style events taking diners on a culinary journey through the twelve Brazilian cities that will be hosting the 2014 Fifa World Cup. Between March and June, eleven Sunday events (lunch and dinner) will be hosted at The Bedford and Strand in central London. Each event will feature a three course meal inspired by one of the World Cup hosting cities with cocktails by Leblon Cachaça and music from the region. Brazil Pop Up Diner is launching on 9th March with a menu priced at £35 a head, including one Leblon caipirinha.
Manaus, Natal, Curitiba, Belo Horizonte, Brasilia, Cuiaba, Salvador, Fortaleza, Porto Alegre, Rio de Janeiro and São Paulo - each of these cities has its own unique local cuisine, shaped by its geography, its climate and its people. Brazil Pop Up Diner will give Londoners the first opportunity to sample a diverse and colourful array of Brazilian food through its programme of events. The great majority of ingredients used in this pop up experience will be available to consumers in UK markets."
