If you're mad about mushrooms and want a really fun evening out, I've got just the pop up for you! On Saturday 25th June, the wonderful Liz O'Keefe (who I met when I wrote a recipe for her peppers cookbook) is hosting her second mushroom inspired pop up. This one is "summer" and I went to the "spring" pop up to check it out. Liz sources excellent UK produce and creates a stunner of a menu. The menu remains secret until the night but I know her June pop up features strawberries and raspberries from Ladysden's farm in Kent, heritage tomatoes from Thanet Earth in Kent, Madecasse chocolate, Westlands' edible flowers, Chase Distillery vodka, gin and wine, and girolles, ceps, Caesar mushrooms, truffles and shameji.
At the Spring pop up we sampled delights including amuse bouche of mushroom caviar, homemade bread rolls with a secret morel in the centre, the most delicious pulled Suffolk salt marsh lamb with St George's mushrooms topped with purple asparagus and wild garlic salad, and orange blossom mousse with dark chocolate and honeycomb, to name a just a few of the dishes we ate!


Liz is a brilliant chef - she gets the flavour balance spot on, even when using the most delicate of ingredients, and she's a wonderful host. We had giggles, drinks galore, singing and so much food. The 25th June pop up takes place at CafĂ© from Crisis London on Commercial Street, and tickets are £45 for seven courses and drinks, with all profits from the night going to Crisis.
