Advance warning – you’re going to want to be in London over the Easter weekend,  as MessHead (Miss Cakehead and London Mess) are ‘frying tonight’ in their 'Fry Hard' pop-up at Boxpark.  They’ll be frying everything from Crème Eggs, Mars Bars, cheese strings, chocolate cake, crumpets…  (We'll have all been very abstemious over Lent, of course)  Bring your own, or get one from their selection, and they’re even asking for creative suggestions via Facebook.
The event takes place from Thurs 2nd April to Sunday 5th April, with two warm-up events on Columbia Road on Sundays 22nd & 29th March

"Culinary renegades ‘messhead’ (a recently formed partership between Miss Cakehead and London Mess) are offering a totally unique eating experience this Easter, a pop-up venture where every single item on sale will be deep fried. Inspired by the iconic die hard movie this is truly a different Easter event - expect tied up Easter bunnies and blood splattered not pastel coloured eggs.

Opening at BOXPARK in Shoreditch on Thursday 2nd April at 11am – with lots of special offers on Good Fry-Day (Friday 3rd April) - Messhead have selected over 100 different items to deep fry, both sweet & savoury with the menu changing daily. His experiments so far have included deep frying cheese-strings, deep fried buttered crumpet, cheese filled hot cross buns and Tunnock’s Caramel. It’s a given that classics such as crème eggs and other popular confectionary will also included.
