latcui 4.08 – Fat Tues & long56
Massive apologies for this only being the 1st official mailer of the year; work has been overwhelmingly busy. Any of you on Facebook, we post info on our events on our group page (https://www.facebook.com/groups/latitudinalcuisine/) when we haven’t had time to write these mailers.
The year’s been good with gorgeous events in London, Lisbon – & even Maputo!
We feasted late into the night at Kasia & Davor’s and luxuriated amidst chinoiserie at Ed’s for Chinese/Lunar/Spring Festival New Year.
Last week we continued what’s fast becoming a Valentine’s tradition as we feasted on aphrodisiacs and foods of love at Kat & Geoff’s.
2 events: Fat Tuesday on Tuesday at Alex & Sinead’s in Shoreditch & longitude 56 at Nino’s in Southwark on Saturday – just 10 degrees east of her birthplace.
On Fat Shrove Pancake Tuesday, everyone’s welcome to come fill our place & pancakes (thanks to all those that filled it for a magnificent night on Saturday for our ecstatic Carnivalesque celebration!). Tuesday’s the penultimate day before the penance of Lent; let the last moments of ecstasy continue! Bring all those delicious things in the back of your cupboards and fridges. Folklore has it that unmarried girls get lucky on this night. We’ve always wanted to run pancake races down Shoreditch High Street – so bring your skills & skillets
On Saturday we’re the 56th day of the year and thus longitude 56. Memories of Africa & the MIddle East fade as we cling for one last week to the Arabian Peninsula (UAE & Oman) and drift through the eastern ex-Soviet republics – the stans (Turkmenistan, Kazakhstan & Uzbekistan, just days from the borders of Afghanstan and Pakistan). We’re in Iran (Tehran on Tues) – and in the news – as we sail straight through the stressed Strait of Hormuz, which shifts 35% of seaborne oil (NB Iran announced yesterday it’s stopped selling oil to the UK).
Massively looking forward to seeing you on Tues, Sat or in the near future.
