Our stories Press Releases New street-food festival, Magic Feast, arrives in South East London 27th October 2014 Magic Feast is a unique new event taking place on 12th November 2014 in the heart of South East London in aid of local children’s charity Magic Breakfast. Some of SE1’s finest restaurants have come together to create a street-food style festival, complete with food stalls, DJ, raffle, live auction and some schoolyard fun, all located in the cafeteria of Surrey Square Primary School, one of the many schools supported by Magic Breakfast. The charity delivers free, nutritious breakfasts to 8,500 primary school students with the aim of aiding children’s concentration and learning in the classroom. The influential Bermondsey Street gastropub The Garrison, whose opening eleven years ago paved the way for the regeneration of SE1’s culinary scene will be serving a poached pear salad with chicory, stilton and caramel walnuts. Their sister restaurant and neighbour Village East, will be serving their now infamous Lamb Meatball sliders. Hutong will be descending 33 floors from The Shard and treating visitors to their poached pork wontons with garlic spicy sauce. Starting life as the Meatwagon in South East London, founders of MEATliquor Yianni Papoutsis and Scott Collins will be serving up their famous and deliciously messy burgers across the evening. They will also provide music for the event courtesy of their very own radio station, MEATtransMISSION. The Good Egg street-food stall, soon to be opening a permanent site in Stoke Newington, will be serving Shakshuka, a warming North African tomato stew served with eggs and preserved lemon yoghurt. New to the London Bridge block is The Breakfast Club, who are serving guests Pancakes with berries and cream. Not only that, Columbia Road’s 1235 Donuts will be making a guest appearance with their homemade donuts. In support of Magic Breakfast, a fantastic raffle on the evening will give guests the chance to win prizes generously donated by a selection of South London restaurants and bars. Prizes include a voucher to dine at favourite oyster and seafood restaurant, Wright Brothers, located in Borough Market as well as the chance to win an exciting pasta making class with Chef Lale of Bermondsey Street restaurant, Zucca. To wash all of this down, local wines and craft beer have been provided and can be enjoyed throughout the night with the evening concluding at 11pm. Tickets, priced at £50, include all food and drink as well as a raffle ticket, and are available to purchase at www.magicfeast.eventbrite.co.uk.
