Feeling Peckish: where to eat at the Litfest.

Amongst the many great things about Stokey is its excellent farmers market held weekly in the grounds of William Patten Primary school every Saturday. This Saturday morning Elisa Benyon will be doing a seasonal cookery demo as part of festival at the farmers market.
 After Elisa has signed copies of her new book the “The Vicar’s Wife cook book” she will popping round the corner to the White Hart Pub to take part in our Eat Your Words: event with food and drink writers Niki Segnit, Pete Brown and Ian Kelly who will be discussing the tricky task of describing flavours in their work!

We hope these and all our events at the festival will provide food for thought but you may also need some sustenance of a more literal form. Well N16 is blessed with some of the widest range and highest quality eating places in London. The variety is so great it would be harsh to single out individual places (and everyone has their own favourites) but starting at the Assembly Halls at the eastern end of Church street you’ll find excellent places for coffee and cakes, followed by vegetarian specialities, pizza and excellent pasta. Church Street has a number of really good bakers if you want to have a picnic in Clissold Park (which also has places for tea and lollies!). Stokey is also much blessed with excellent international food particular good are the Indian, Bangladesh, Mexican and Thai places closer to the High Street end of Church Street. The food doesn’t end there; the High Street has a string of Turkish bakers who do wonderful things with spinach and pastry as well as having some excellent “Ocakbasi” char grill restaurants (one with a famous speciality!).

All this and we haven’t mentioned the great Chinese, sushi, noodles and the Chip shops! Oh and you can pick up some beigels (some say bagels) anytime or day NIGHT from the end of the high street.

Please ask one of our local festival volunteers for their own recommendations of places to go.
