Bee Kind & Dine x Stepney City Farm

On Friday 24th April, we popped-up at Stepney City Farm and hosted a three-course dinner using the best of the farm’s produce, including goat, eggs, vegetables and herbs. Guests were treated to a sunset farm tour with the farm’s charismatic manager before sitting down to an evening of fine-dining over candle light. Proceeds from this not-for-profit event went back into the farm, to help them develop their bee-keeping programme.

 


 

Bee Kind & Dine x Grace & Thorn

On the 6th March, we teamed up with the ‘whimsical, wild and off-beat’ world of Hackney florists Grace & Thorn for one, very special evening. We presented a five-course tasting menu that highlighted the importance of sustainability within our food system. The intricate flavours of the season were enjoyed amidst the aromatic and unique surrounds of a working florists. Our guests dined in a bee’s element, encompassed by the life-force of our food-growing industry – pollen itself.

This decadent evening of fine food was meticulously prepared by our top London chef, Joe Fox – former Senior Sous Chef at Hix Soho and now working alongside Head Chef Damian Clisby at the acclaimed restaurant of Petersham Nurseries. Each dish highlighted the very best of the season, with ingredients coming from sustainable, bee-friendly sources. Organic London-grown greens complemented sustainably sourced meats and fish, with vegetables that are deemed too ugly for the market whipped up into colourful accompaniments.

Bee Kind & Dine x Briggs & Williams

For our first event, we teamed up with London bee keeping duo Barnes and Webb to create a sell-out evening of fine dining with a subtle buzz of education.

On Thursday 20th November 2014, we “popped up” at Briggs and Williams (in E8, the same postcode as some of Barnes and Webb’s hives) and curated a three-course meal, fresh from their bees’ produce alongside other, locally and sustainably sourced ingredients. The menu was be headed up by Bee Kind & Dine‘s experienced and professional chef, Joe Fox.

Tickets went on sale on a fixed donation basis, with all the evening’s profits going to support Barnes and Webb‘s fantastic Save the Bees campaign, which allows them to establish and maintain bee hives within local communities in London.

Sutton Community Farm x Streatham Food Festival

One of the Bee Kind & Dine team’s first events was a sustainable dinner with Sutton Community Farm, held as part of Streatham Food Festival 2014. A three-course meal using the farm’s organic, seasonal and London-grown produce was held after a homemade elderflower champagne reception. This intimate dinner, for just 30 lucky guests, quickly sold out and it was the success of it that spurned Laura Jean and Joe to create and found Bee Kind & Dine as a platform to continue events that raise awareness around the problems within our current food system.
