Bitesize: Mixed Grill & Hendrick’s Refined Courtship Clinic

If you’re anything like me, you may be a little disorganised, and are possibly looking at your calendar thinking, I am sure I am doing something this weekend.

Of course, I am! The Mixed Grill. I wouldn’t miss it. Tim Hayward, publisher and brains behind superb Food Quarterly Fire & Knives, has organised a day of a day of talks, lectures, rants, performances, debates, panels, presentations and party pieces on the endlessly fascinating subject of… FOOD. And it’s tomorrow, and it’s only £20. There are only a few tickets left.

More info and tickets here.

Singletons looking for a Valentine may want to visit the Hendrick’s Refined Courtship Clinic. The sessions are run by Dr Humphrey SixWivs and Mrs Isabella Forlornicate. Unusually, the sessions commence with a voluntary intake of Hendrick’s Gin & Tonic, complete with restorative cucumber garnish. After an assessment, treatment covers all aspects from polite body language to acceptable topics of conversation and procedures of courtship to reading signals from a lady’s fan movements.

Open from 10th – 14th February (12 noon – 7pm), it’s Hendrick’s, it will be quirky and fun Pop into Hawksmoor for a burger or some ribs after, and you will have wooed your Valentine – guaranteed.

  1. Really wanted to go but trading at Borough Market and couldn’t get cover. Hope he runs something again – perhaps on a Sunday instead. Look forward to hearing all about it.
