The Michelin starred Clove Club and Lyles of Shoreditch both started off as pop up supper clubs. This rags to riches story has inspired many young chefs and pop-ups are now a well established part of the dining scene in London. More recently the Thai restaurant Som Saa completed the successful Crowdfunded move from a pop-up/residency in London Fields to a permanent restaurant of their own and now Leandro Carreira looks likely to follow suit.
Sprig is a vegan friendly vegetarian pop up created by ex Dinner at Heston and Chiltern Firehouse chef Peter Pickering.
Soundbites was lucky enough to catch up with Peter during his latest event at the Brockley Mess, sample some dishes and also help out in the kitchen.
Peter’s cooking is light, respectful, informed and delicious. Vegetables are treated with the respect and care normally associated with fancy cuts of meat and fish, attention to detail and a passion for flavour are apparent in every mouthful.
