Blaggers’ Banquet, Hawksmoor – details

Posted on Wednesday, 11th November 2009


So here’s the official press release for the Blaggers’ Banquet which gives you the details on how you might be able to purchase tickets for the dinner which are now on sale. I will be on kitchen prep for the night, but don’t let that put you off! But first, a word of thanks to those lovely people who I have managed to blag some donations from for the auction. Look out for these listings when the auction goes up on Ebay.

1) The fabulous Junction Tavern for a £50 meal voucher;
2) A dinner for four at The Big Bang Restaurant in Oxford; and
3) A goodie bag featuring Maggie Beer products worth £30 from Of Wine & Yabbies.

And finally, here are the details:

On November 15th, Londons’ Food & Drink Bloggers will be taking over Hawksmoor, the revered steakhouse in Liverpool St, for the Blaggers’ Banquet.

A first for Londoners – the Blaggers’ Banquet will be an exciting 5 course dinner with matched drinks, created entirely by food and drink bloggers, and using only food and drink that they have blagged. All proceeds will go to Action Against Hunger.

Bloggers will be the cooks and the sommeliers, front of house and the prep folk, the kitchen porters and the cleaner uppers. We’ll staff the bar, make the cocktails and make the coffee, and best of all diners can review us when we are done.

The menu will feature Chapel Down sparkling wine on arrival, Wagyu Beef and sustainable yellow kingfish among others. There will be music on arrival and canapés. Vegetarians and people with dietary restrictions will be catered for.

There will also be a blaggers’ auction, where we will be auctioning exciting items we’ve blagged. This auction will be two fold, a portion of it on the night, and the rest in the weeks following. Tickets are on sale now in pairs for £150 and one table of 5 for £375. 5 pairs of tickets will be auctioned started from £75. Tickets are available on ebay:
