Summer Camp, the exciting series of culinary and creative workshops from At The Table, officially launched on Sunday 10th July.

Summer Camp, the exciting series of culinary and creative workshops from At The Table, officially launched on Sunday 10th July.

Hosted by At The Table’s favourite chefs, creatives and makers at Town Hall Hotel, in the heart of the vibrant East End, Summer Camp encourages people to gather ‘at the table’ and learn a new skill that will last long after summer fades, looking at food from a different perspective. SEEN looks forward to reawakening skills that we have perhaps forgotten in our technological age.

The first workshop is Tacos, Pickles & Tepache-iladas. This event, hosted by Freddie Janssen of F.A.T., is already sold out, and tickets are already selling quickly for the rest of the series.

On Thursday 28th July, learn to make Turmeric Tonic with Jamu Kitchen, a London-based drinks company making densely-packed herb and spice potions, in the comfort of a luxurious Town Hall Hotel apartment. On Sunday 7th August, deconstruct the world of perfume, discover its secrets and make your own signature fragrance from scratch with the Experimental Perfume Club. On Thursday 11th August, learn how to get the most out of the seasonal glut of soft fruit by making a stone fruit or summer berry jam with Newton & Pott.

Other workshops will cover ceramics with Sarah Hall and Lisa Ommanney from Turning Earth Studio in Hackney, hand-tied British bouquets with Grace & Thorn, fabric printing with Ren London and a masterclass in fermentation, pickles and fermented drinks given by Hackney-based restaurant Rawduck. It all sounds delicious, great fun and a useful way to reconnect with craft skills.
