Bitesize: Serpentine Gallery Sleepover, Michelin Star Pop-Up at Cowes Week, Festival Brazil at the Southbank Centre and Ping!

Bitesize is back! Every 2 weeks, I will be publishing a selection of interesting things, almost all food and drink related that you may want to do.

Serpentine Gallery Sleepover

Professional insomniacs or those aspiring may want to check out the sleepover at the Serpentine Gallery.

The Serpentine Gallery and the V&A will stage a unique overnight event of talks, films, experiments and a midnight feast in the Serpentine Gallery Pavilion 2010 designed by Jean Nouvel.

Artists, architects and musicians amongst others will host activities throughout the night, exploring ideas of mapping sleep and the psychedelic qualities of insomnia.

You might want to go, because jellymongers Bompass & Parr will be presenting Power Trifles trifles,  containing either calming remedies or powerful stimulants which may keep you up all night (they’re everywhere, right?!). There will also be a Bombay Sapphire Twilight Bar serving specially created night-cap cocktails.

Cowes Week

Cowes Week - sun, sea, spectators and some sailing

Cowes Week is the one of the UK’s longest running sporting events (beginning in 1826) and one of the world’s best know sailing regattas. This year will see over 8,000 competitors and 100,000 spectators heading to the event. This year sees a pop-up restaurant come to Cowes from Michelin-starred chef Robert Thompson at the beautiful Northwood House.

Guerrilla Gastronomist Omar Allibhoy (I’ve written about Omar’s Tapas Revolution recently) will be offering a tapas takeaway express to boats in the marina on Monday August 2nd as part of his Tapas Revolution. He will give you some too :)

There will also be a local food market during the two weekends of Cowes Week where producers from the Isle of Wight will be selling their produce.

Festival Brazil at the Southbank Centre, London

Bringing the vibrant, dynamic culture of contemporary Brazil to the heart of London, Festival Brazil celebrates the country’s rich cultural heritage – including music, visual arts, dance, literature, debates and food.

Skylon is celebrating Festival Brazil with a two-course lunch put together by Brazilian chef José Barattino at Skylon Grill and entry to the Ernesto Neto exhibition at Hayward Gallery for just £20.

Throughout the festival there will be outdoor food stalls on the Festival Terrace on 17–18 July, 24–25 July, 7–8 August, 28–30 August.

I like food. I like to make food. Eat food. Photograph food. Write about food. Mainly in London but when I am lucky or organised further afield.

  1. The Serpentine sleepover sounds cool – like the idea of power trifles and bombay sapphire nighcaps… wonder if my family would notice if I snuck out?!!
