The Streatham Food Festival is back with a difference for 2020. The new look Food Festival will take place from 1st – 30th September, showcasing the incredible range of global food on offer in Streatham to eat in or take away. The Food Festival aims to encourage residents and visitors to the area to take a Streatham ‘Taste Staycation’.
Each participating restaurant, cafe or bar will showcase their signature dish with a special offer of between £7 and £10, valid for the length of the festival, giving people plenty of time to taste their way around Streatham, avoiding crowds and trying the fabulous food available on their doorstep. Confirmed restaurants so far include Boyce de Roca, Italian Bistro, La Fresca, The Manor Arms, Nar Cafe Bistro, Perfect Blend, The Real Jerk and Tribe.
In addition a weekly online cooking demonstration will showcase the variety of cuisine on offer in the area too, giving people the chance to learn some of their favourite Streatham dishes. One event will take place each week for four weeks, featuring a different course each week and a cocktail class for the final week, creating a three course Streatham menu and cocktail.
Jen Batchelor, Co-chair, of event organisers, InStreatham BID and owner of Batch & Co Coffee, commented: “2020 has been an incredibly challenging year for the hospitality industry. We have some of the best food and drink businesses in London right here in Streatham and we want to create an event that will support them and, at the same time, give residents the opportunity to discover the huge range of global cuisine on offer in our area.”
