Haringey

Haringey Food & Drink Festival is taking place on Tottenham Green this Sunday. The festival is the culmination of Urban Food Fortnight.

Building on the ongoing success of the weekly Tottenham Green market, the impressive line up this Sunday will showcase over 40 urban food producers, growers, breweries & street food stalls.

Long time local favourites such as Beavertown, Wildes Cheese and Craving Coffee will be joined by stalls ranging from Sole Share’s fresh oyster bar through to Living Under One Sun’s apple press. Personally I’ll be starting with an “Ugly Dumpling” and then going stall to stall from there!

Cheesy Tottenham TV

Wildes Cheese, Tottenham

A recent episode of the BBC’s James Martin: Home Comforts features local cheese producers, Wildes Cheese. If you missed the broadcast, you can still catch up on iPlayer (below) until the middle of February.

The cheeses range from Highcross (“salty, mild, creamy and crumbly”) to Smoked Londonshire (“soft and runny cheese held together by a white velvety coat”).

The St Bruce brings another local on to the stage, being “given a regular drink of Redemption brewery’s Hopspur to create the coat”. They will even make Poutine Curds to order to help make the perfect hangover cure the day after too much Redemption.

“Deep in the heart of Tottenham, north Lo...

Tottenham Green market returns

Cheeses at Tottenham Green Market

One of the highlights of this summer was Tottenham Green Market, and from this coming Saturday it is back!

However it has moved up the road a little bit to the car park of Tottenham Chances Arts & Music centre.

Tottenham Green Market promises to offer “the best in local eating, drinking and shopping. Visitors can buy delicious fresh bread, cakes, charcuterie, jams, chutneys and cheeses – all made in the neighbourhood – plus rare breed beef, lamb and pork and seasonal vegetables from slightly further afield.

“For breakfast/brunch/lunch there are Caribbean delights, Steak Frites, Indian treats, slow cooked meat sandwiches, cupcakes and loads more.”

Presented by Craving Coffee & tottenhamlife.co.uk with ticket proceeds to The Markfield Project and including Meet the Brewer from Redemption Brewery, the TEAM TOTTENHAM PARTY looks like an event well worth supporting.

It takes place this Thursday evening at the cosy Craving Coffee – who have been making quite a stir locally with their themed events. The coffee’s not bad either!

The organisers describe what’s behind the night:

“We love Tottenham and its passionate community spirit. We want to celebrate it with a Team Tottenham party in our cafe, at The Mill Co. Project.

We’ll have our good friends from Redemption Brewery as guests for Meet the Brewer, with a chance to learn more about and samples their beers...

Tottenham cake star of Bake Off

Tottenham_cake

Tottenham cake was one of the stars of this week’s Great British Bake Off.

For anyone unaware of this local delicacy, it is type of tray-baked sponge cake topped with pink icing.

It was originally produced by a local baker, the Quaker Henry Chalkley and sold for one old penny per slice, with offcuts only a half penny. The pink colouring reportedly stems from the use of mulberries which grew in the garden of the Tottenham Friends Meeting House.
