ANNOUNCEMENT – Eat the Olympics supper club

Eat the Olympics Supper Club 28 July – 11 August London, W10 (venue to be revealed on purchase of ticket) In January 2012 we (Jack Hemingway and Sarah Kemp) embarked on an Olympic culinary challenge – to eat a dish from every single country taking part in the London 2012 games. We were quick out of the blocks, completing thirty dishes in the first two weeks but this is a marathon not a sprint and in recent times we have been somewhat off the pace. The recent purchase of our Queens Park flat slowed things down and it now sits empty while we await planning permission. With the help of our crafty fingered friends and family we have transformed the space into our very own Olympic themed pop-up restaurant. Now we need your help to make it over the final hurdle before the summer is out and Olympic Games have left town. Over three weekends during the London 2012 Olympic Games, we invite you to join us at our Eat the Olympic Supper Club where …

Eat the Olympics – new blog

For the last few weeks, Jack and I have been busy cooking dishes from each of the countries that are taking part in the Olympics this summer. We are bonkers, I know. We’re four weeks in and we have already completed 45 recipes, not bad going really. We’d love you to follow us through the highs and lows. I’ll also be sharing each of the recipe images here with you – don’t forget to click through to the Eat the Olympics blog for the recipe. We’d love to hear how they go if you fancy trying them out for yourselves at home. If you have any suggestions, they are greatly appreciated! I’ll get you started with one of our first recipes – Piparkakut from Finland. Delicious enjoyed with a cup of tea. Sarah. x Click on the image for the recipe

Vintage at Southbank Centre

Let me set the scene. My boyfriends family are huge advocates of vintage, whether that be music, fashion, design or films. I met my boyfriend in a field at Bestival in 2007 and I remember thinking that it was cool that his dad and little brother (who was 10 at the time) came for a couple of days. We went back to Bestival for the next couple of years and as we started to see the changes, the way that it was expanding so fast, we decided to give it a miss the following year. It was the same year that my boyfriends parents had an idea. To encompass everything that they are passionate about and hold their very own festival. A relationship with Goodwood was established and the date was set – August 13th – 15th 2010. See my post on the event last year here. Anyone that went last year will know how fantastic it was. A high street in a field, post war silver service in The Torch Club, the BEST club …
