Following its great success in March this year, the Marylebone Food Festival will be back for a second year from 24-28 April 2019
Over the course of the festival, Marylebone’s food and drink establishments—ranging from neighbourhood cafes and wine bars to Michelin-starred restaurants—will put on special menus and host exclusive masterclasses, one-off collaborations, food tours and talks, throwing the spotlight on the gastronomic wealth and diversity of the area.
A headline event will launch the festival on Wednesday 24 April when some of London’s best Marylebone based chefs and food experts will come together for an exclusive dinner held in St Mary’s Church on York Street, a striking, grade II listed Georgian building in the centre of Marylebone.
At the inaugural Marylebone Food Festival earlier this year, celebrated chefs and restaurants including The Providores’ Peter Gordon, Michelin star restaurant Trishna, Roux at the Landau, La Fromagerie and many more were among those who brought The World on a Plate to life with an exclusive tasting menu all paired with a specially curated wine flight, in the dramatic setting of a Gothic Revival church.
The festival raised over £2,000 for its charity partner, FoodCycle Marylebone. The Baker Street Quarter Partnership BID also coordinated an area-wide food drive in support of the charity, which uses donated food items to cook a healthy three course meal at St Paul's Church, Marylebone, for those locals most in need.
