The South London Food Trip, 7-9 December 2012

Right now listen up, because this is pretty cool.

From 7th – 9th December, I will be teaming up with Food Trips to present a weekend of eating, cooking, shopping and exploring around South London. The idea behind Food Trips is that a load of like minded people get together and pack as much culinary fun into a weekend as is possible.

I think we have some of the most exciting restaurants, markets, food shops and producers down here South of the river and the  trip will take in the best that Peckham (woo!), Brixton, Camberwell and Brockley have to offer. It’s going to be a lot of fun. Check out the plans below:

Friday, December 7th
Travel to London, check in at Victoria Inn Peckham, our modern and unfussy lodgings for the weekend.
Meet Helen and Florian for a welcome drink.
Dinner Crawl of SE London. From hipster Thai in Peckham to Xingjiang chinese in Camberwell and back again by way of Turkish charcoal grills and South Indian chilli assaults.  Lots of places, lots of food to try.

Saturday, December 8th
Markets of South East London: Start with a coffee from the quantum physics nerds at Brockley Market, move on to scotch eggs and charcuterie and haggle for yam on Rye Lane. Meet the wonderful local producers and try their food.
After a little lunchtime digestion break  we move to Anderson’s in Peckham and take over their restaurant and kitchen.
We’ll turn our loot into a beautiful dinner and Helen will give you a bit of insight into Peckham stalwart recipes like jerk chicken, muhammara or bobcat slaw.
The bar at the Victoria Inn will hopefully be able to answer all questions still open after dinner.

Sunday, December 9th
To round proceedings off the will be an extended breakfast at Brixton Village on Sunday. Kick start your day with a scotch bonnet vodka bloody mary at Seven at Brixton and then nibble your way through the holy hallways of one of the most exciting food locations in London.

£280 with a single room

    Awesome! This sounds great. Odds on everyone will be smashed by the end of each day ;)

  2. Helen

    I don’t know what you could possibly mean…

  3. KSalty

    Wow this sounds really cool Helen – you must be well excited!

  4. Helen

    I am I am!

    That’s a great idea. We (Leeds) hosted the European Beer Bloggers conference back in May, and I arranged the pre-conference Pub Tour the night before. It felt great to show off the best of what my city had to offer, and to introduce people to pubs they had only read about before. The feedback I got from it made it all worthwhile. Wonderful – best of luck.

    Thank you!

    i stay around the area too, and there’s just so much good food around that needs to be known! I’me excited for you!

  8. Chris

    ….erm, YUM! Those sticky ribs look amazing.

    fantastically knowledgeable and we really enjoyed the tour. It was a good pace and although we live in London we learnt a lot. You do get to try some foods but only tasters so take some extra cash as there are opportunities to buy food or have a light lunch before you go. I would recommend this tour.

    Considering the tour hasn’t happened yet, I must say I am rather amused by your comment. If you are able to see into the future however, then I am very reassured that it will go so well. Also, you could probably make a lot of money using that skill.

    My sister was lucky enough to grab 2 tickets for this tour and we are looking forward to it so much! Sounds like we will have lots of fun!

    We can’t wait do nibble our way through South London ;-)

    Cheers from Germany!


  12. Helen

    Fabulous! I’m really looking forward to meeting you both! it’s going to be huge fun.

  13. Sarah

    Was keen to do this, but see you’re going to Brixton on the Sunday when most stuff is shut so might skip it and just do my own wander on a Saturday instead…

  14. Helen

    Brixton village is now open on Sundays.
