Food and wine writer and author Fiona Beckett will be collaborating with Middle Eastern restaurant favorite Honey & Co. in a series of pop-up wine classes with a difference. They'll be directed at a very specific audience: people who are passionate about food but nervous about wine. Classes will include a tasting of six different wines with nibbles from the restaurant, followed by a main course and dessert over lunch, with further wine. The class and lunch, with wine included, is £75. Payment must be made in advance by giving credit card details to Honey & Co. by phone or visiting the restaurant. Honey & Co., 25A Warren St., London W1T 5LZ, 020-738 86175.

Duck and Waffle chef Dan Doherty’s Chefs of Tomorrow venture will be manifesting as a series of pop-up chef spots taking place for five weeks, every Saturday at Druid Street Market, from November 7-December 5, 2015.

Through April 2016
Street Feast's indoor night market Hawker House is back, and this time it’s heading over to Canada Water. Following a very successful winter stint in Dalston last year, it will this time be showcasing two floors of street food, bars and its now-famous whisky roulette, in a warehouse on Canada Street. New for this year is Neil Rankin's Meat Hook, Argentine-style, three-meter-long, whole-animal grill; and Up In My Grill, serving hunks of meat with shoestring fries and chimichurri. There'll be 13 street food vendors to choose from, and six bars serving everything from craft beer to classic cocktails. Hawker House will stay there until April 2016, with a Christmas break from December 12 to January 29. Street Feast's Hawker House, Canada St., London SE16 2XU, no phone.
