Pop-up foodie event in West London

Food Stories_Header2Food Stories West

What happens when you mix savoury storytelling and nectarous nosh with a splash of schnapps? A day of performances dedicated to food, family, recipes and the stories that link them together.

Come and join us at Food Stories West pop-up at Road Food in Portobello Market where the stories will be overflowing. Raconteurs will include the famous and the infamous – and of course the delicious. All of our guests will share a story about food, family or something that connects the two – and there may be delicious treats and surprises throughout the day too.

So what are we looking to do – and how can you get involved?

We’re producing the first, of what we hope will be a series of events, called Food Stories  – a day of food and stories and performances dedicated to food, family recipes and the stories that link them together. 

We’d love to hear from interested parties who would like to take part and tell a story during the day – and bring some samples for the crowds to try! The format of the day will see a number of people telling a story about their favourite food, their family or something that links those things together.  We’re asking people to be as creative as they would like – and encouraging the use of music and song if appropriate. We’re looking for tales which are about 5-6 minutes long, ideally connected to a recipe or recipes. We will work with you to make sure you feel happy and confident about all that you have to do.

Contact us if you would like to get involved! hello@soapboxandsons.com
