Over the past few years we’ve worked on some very exciting foodie projects in and around London. We’re looking back on a few of our favourite highlights, including an incredible festival with stunning food, residencies at the House of Peroni and the Serpentine Gallery and a great pop-up restaurant that brought the essence of Italian cooking to London. We can’t wait to see what the rest of 2017 has in store.
