Lovin' It @ Lovebox
All over the country stages are busily being set up as we well and truly immerse ourselves in glorious festival season! This year, Fabulous Feasts is looking forward to catering and getting stuck in at one of the capital's favourites, Lovebox, which runs from 15th- 17th July.
Now eight years old, this festival has a lot to smile about… Being let loose on London's oldest public park in the city's eastern most creative and socially dynamic pocket bordering Bethnal Green, Hackney and Bow gives Lovebox a truly urban, authentic vibe that is not easily equalled.
Headlining this year are The Wombats, Scissor Sisters and Snoop Dogg - but sitting alongside those are a huge medley of rock and roll favourites, epic performances from the mainstream and the more obscure, and chilled out chuggy jams under the trees from up and coming bands and DJs spanning all genres.
We love a good festival and our lot will no doubt be clambering to be part of the Lovebox team! We’ll be taking good care of the VIP and VVIP ticket holders, who’ll be enjoying fast track access to the festival, together with a dedicated ‘calm in the storm’ backstage haven, up close and personal with the crew and artists right at the heart of the action. Oh and did we mention they also get nice, clean loos?! Surely that alone is worth digging deep for and treating yourself to a VIP ticket!
This is an important gig for us at Fabulous Feasts, because one of our goals this year is going out to the festivals we’re working with as the foodie support act and really upping the ante on our own little stage, challenging what is commonly accepted and labelled as festival food. Sure, we’ll still have the old favourites like buns packed full of meat - but they’ll be top quality, light floured baps from Jamie’s own bakery, The Flour Station, and the meat will be British and free range through and through – and maybe something a little bit different to get you talking like delicious old-school, Oxfordshire salt beef. Thrown into the mix we’ll pull out our beautiful, huge cast iron pans and cook up some gorgeous dishes like ‘Morrocan Style Beef Tagine with Zingy Preserved Lemon & Smashed Up Green Olives’ or ‘Beautiful Summer Veggie Jalfrezi’, which you can dig into out of a Fab Feasts pot so you don’t have to stand still and miss out on the action! And the British summer mightn’t always give us sun but it does give us a stunning abundance of fresh produce from the fields, so prepared to be spoilt, you vegetarians! Bowls of funky salads like ‘The Mothership Tomato & Basil Salad’, ‘Chickpea, Griddled Aubergine & Courgette Salad with Creamy Goat’s Cheese’ and ‘Proper Panzanella Salad with Roasted Peppers, Punchy Olive Oil & Sherry Vinegar’. If you need some fuel later on after tearing up the festival to get round and see your favourite bands then we’ll pull out a few sweet treats like ‘The Best Chocolate Brownies’ and ‘Flowerpot’ Treacle Muffins.
And we’re hoping we can pull it off like our last festival when one of our lovely customers allowed us to raise a small smile by commenting “The guys at Fabulous Feast have really raised the bar in festival food to an unbelievable height! I had vertigo every time I ate lunch with them!”
