Covent Garden Night Markets - Tasting Evening Invitation for the UKFBA

Following its huge success in 2007, Covent Garden will once again be revisiting its heritage as the original larder of London with London’s only food night market, and now including a kitchen theatre fronted by celebrity chefs.

To Londoners’ delight, the historic Piazza will be transformed into a foodie paradise this summer and will feature even more unique, mouth watering stalls from some of the UK’s finest traders. There will also be stalls selling fish caught fresh from the river Thames including Grade A oysters, a wild game stall offering everything from grey squirrel to pigeon and Melt chocolate for bespoke, exclusive delicacies.

Learn how to cook with some of the UK’s top chefs from the Hairy Bikers to Willie Wonka and Fergus Henderson as they cook up a storm on the Piazza with exciting new dishes prepared with fresh produce taken directly from the market stalls. Chefs set to host their own exciting Kitchen Theatre from 6.30pm are as follows:

· 15th August: Hairy Bikers – Geordie duo renowned for working their way around the world on their motorbikes.

· 22nd August: Willie Harcourt-Cooze - the modern day Willie Wonka, famed for his 100% pure Venezuelan Black chocolate

· 29th August: Fergus Henderson – head chef of St John restaurant and famous for his book and philosophy of ‘Nose to Tail Eating’

The night markets run every Thursday and Friday until 29th August (3:00pm-10:00pm on Thursdays and 12:00pm - 9:00pm on Fridays). Kitchen theatres will take place from 6.30pm

UK food bloggers are invited to an intimate tasting evening this Friday 15th August at 6pm, followed by the chance to see Hairy Bikers (www.hairybikers.com) cook up a storm at 6.30pm.

As part of the tasting evening, Covent Garden Night Markets would like to offer you some redeemable vouchers, so that you can sample the produce and dishes at the market for free. If you would like to attend you need to email Nik_Thakkar@jcpr.com and include a link to your blog.
