FOOD: supper clubs from Burgess & HallTwo foodie evenings are coming up from E11 oenophiles Burgess & Hall. First up, this Saturday 5th Dec, is a wine and food tasting menu at popular hang the Wild Goose Bakery. A glass of fizz will be followed by six wines, paired with six small plates (four savoury, two sweet) prepared by the chefs at the cafe (7.30pm, £35). Then on Wednesday 16th Dec, the pair present the Ultimate Winter Warmers at All Your Read is Love, (877 High Road) with a tasting of robust reds, warming ports, and wines “to curl up by the fire with” this Christmas. Tickets £25 (incl. eight wines and cheeses). Buy tickets for both evenings here.
FILM: Hitchcock’s Home does ChristmasRemember the glorious summer Hitch bash? Y’know, with the alfresco movie classics at St John’s churchyard? Well the team are back for a festive special; and actually, we can’t think of a better way to spend the lazy Sunday before Christmas than snuggling down with the family (or your bezzies) with something seasonal to watch.
This one-day only cinematic adventure is being held at The Mission Hall on Alymer Road, E11 – and Leyton’s hottest new opening Deeney’s will be dishing up toasties, with Burgess & Hall (yup, them again) on hand with well-chosen red and white wines, mulled wine, craft beers and Hackney-made gin. Movies include – ahhhhh! – The Snowman, Father Christmas, The Muppet Christmas Carol and, at 730pm, our favourite Xmas movie of all time: Gremlins. But hang on a minute, wot no Hitchcock? Oops.
Adult tickets are from £12.40. Book now here.
