London Evening Standard’s major new food festival

June 2017 saw the launch of London Food Month; a month-long celebration of food featuring a bustling outdoor Night Market and over 400 events across the capital. Curated by Grace Dent and Tom Parker Bowles, Creative Directors for London Food Month, Britain’s best chefs including Angela Hartnett, Fergus Henderson and Claude Bosi starred alongside international chefs including Dan Hunter, Ana Ros and David Thompson. Food waste was a major focus during London Food Month. As part of the festival, Massimo Bottura, founder of Food for Soul, launched Refettorio Felix, a permanent community soup kitchen in partnership with Westfield, London Food Month and our official charity partner The Felix Project. More details can be found on the Refettorio Felix website.
