Demo Kitchen: Carnival

Chef Jenny Chandler is bringing Europe’s biggest street festival to the demonstration kitchen

This Friday, we're getting ready for Notting Hill Carnival with brilliant chef Jenny Chandler, Borough Market regular, cookbook author and European ambassador for the International Year of Pulses (yes, that’s right!).

The huge celebration of London’s racial diversity, particularly its Caribbean communities, kicks off on Sunday, with two entire days of parading, dancing, music and revelry— which includes, of course, plenty of great food and drink. Bringing the party to you, Jenny will be making her own home cook-friendly version of Caribbean street food in the demo kitchen, combing the Market's seasonal ingredients with her own warm, exuberant cooking style.

Her menu will include:

A light rum punch (a non alcoholic version too)

Jerk pork tenderloin and chicken with rice and peas

Spiced prawn and lime skewers

While we can’t guarantee a Caribbean heatwave, we can guarantee cooking tips, tastings and recipes on Friday, so come and join us in the Market Hall, 12:30-2pm for a celebration!
