London Picnic Club At The Skyroom
–Posted by Calum Sager on 30 July 2012
The London Picnic Club is an event aimed to surprise and excite with top quality food and drink situated on the picturesque South London Skyroom.
Running for the duration of the Olympics and Paralympics, the Skyroom designed by young architect David Kohn (creator of a Room for London atop the Queen Elizabeth Hall in South Bank) will gradually undergo a transformation into a garden with a difference- a colourful, living and breathing roof top oasis allowing guests to retreat from the London chaos below. The London Picnic Club are inviting the public to share and enjoy exquisite food presented in the form of surprising picnic hampers, take part in garden games, catch a variety of exclusive live musical and theatrical performances, stretch out on blankets and cushions to watch a classic summertime movie or simply hang out in our deck chair lounge with a cocktail and take in the surrounding London skyline.
To celebrate the multi national appeal of London playing host to the Olympics and Paralympics, Platterformís new head chef Alejandro Bello (of Ceviche fame) has collected and carefully reinvented select dishes from various corners of the world all assembled beautifully inside an iconic British picnic hamper. Designed as a sharing meal for 2 or more expect London Picnic Club hampers to contain inspirational tapas style signature hot dishes, innovative ceviches and garden fresh salads as well as a fine selection of locally produced St. Johnís Bakery artisanal breads, Nealís Yard Dairy cheeses, Spanish and Italian charcuterie, home-made preserves and dips, fresh fruits and exotic desserts.
