Table talk

ft-weekendHeston Blumenthal heads a line-up of industry heavyweights mincing words on the food and drink stage at FT Weekend Live, the pink-un’s first foray onto the festival scene, at Kenwood House in Hampstead on Saturday (September 3). Mr B will explain how British culture, science and history shaped the ideas that led to his restaurants, the Fat Duck and Dinner.

Francesco Mazzei, chef-patron of Sartoria in Mayfair, will talk about Britain’s love affair with pasta, while Sarit Packer and Itamar Srulovich, the couple behind Honey & Co near Warren Street station (“exhilarating” and “extraordinary”, according to the Harden’s Survey), will expatiate on their specialist subject, cake.

For a more business-focused chewing over of how to be a millennial restaurateur, catch Daniel Morgenthau, co-owner of new-generation Fitzrovia restaurants Portland (“novel” and “exciting”) and Clipstone, in discussion with Cynthia Shanmugalingam, founder of the food start-up incubator Kitchenette.
