I am back in London and Bitesize is back. I have had a few requests for info on food happenings in this town, so it was definitely time to bring back Bitesize.
Vintage Dirt is pleased to announce that on Saturday 24th September 2011, they will be in association with Laverstoke Park Farm presenting a six course tasting menu of Bio-Dynamic Food in one of East London’s best kept secret locations.
Douglas McMaster (Wasted (Aus), St John Bread and Wine, Young Chef of the Year 2009) and Claire Roberson (Shacklewell Nights & Green Onions) will be combining their ‘pop – up’ credentials for one night only.
Both from farming family backgrounds, Douglas and Claire firmly believe in the importance of the role of Bio -Dynamic produce in modern-day cooking and farming as it’s the only sustainable way to farm organically in the modern world.
Tickets for the six course tasting menu on Saturday 24th September 2011 will be available for £50 per person, we will be offering a Bio – Dynamic wine match per course for an additional supplement if requested or a BYO policy. Email firstname.lastname@example.org to book.

Sipsmith Damson Vodka & Sloe Gin
Who would have thought that boutique distillers Sipsmith could improve on their superb gin & vodka? Well, they just did with the launch of the fabulous new limited edition Damson Vodka and vintage Sloe Gin. It’s really special, and I highly recommend that you get your paws on a few bottles. It’s a limited edition and I would expect it to go quickly.
