Demo Kitchen June residency: Moveable feasts

Running every Thursday in the Market Hall, Borough Market’s Demonstration Kitchen residencies focus on a particular theme each month. This month: Moveable Feasts

We will be here every Thursday in the month of June to help you become the best friend or host you can be, even when you are on the move! Our chefs will give you plenty of recipes, tips and tricks to make entertaining this season as pain-free as possible.

Every Thursday throughout the month, a different chef will join us, demonstrating dishes that can contribute to a moveable feast. 

Demos are free to attend, with tasters, cooking tips and recipe cards to take home, so come and join us!
