There were two things I couldn't wait to finish when I left my job, and they've both launched in the space of a day, and sitting here writing about them couldn't feel like a nicer task. One is the food zine I guest-edited for Generic Greeting, which I'll talk more about next week when I'm up in Manchester and have seen it IRL for the first time (but you can totally pre-order it now, let's not be coy about THAT).
The other is POPPADOM PREACH. My best bud Heather is the only person I know that genuinely thinks of 'the more the merrier' as a great idea so I'm not surprised she's been able to organise this between London, Berlin, Tbilisi and New York, but I'm still super proud. Heather's wanted to do something like this for a while, and I could never work out how to make it possible in London with no starting budget. So instead, we're housing it in Berlin, with two other awesome friends of Heather's: Liv and Zenib.
Poppadom Preach is a one-off, four-course, vegan, Indian feast in Neukölln. Tickets are €25.00 per person, including booking fee, and it's BYOB. You can book tickets here and see the menu below.
Highlights I'm already excited about include Zenib's banging homemade chutneys (tamarind, come at me) and mint and coriander saag, Liv's sesame seed-crusted tofu, Heather's spicy beets and masala croutons, and the four hour smoked coconut dhal that has given me 101 excuses to cook curry three times a week for the past two months.
So if you already live in Berlin or you'll be there on 5th July, come and join us!
If you’ve chatted to me inebriated this year, you’ll know one of my many plans for 2015 was to get to know the people I talk to on social media everyday better IRL...
