Countertalk’s event history

 

One of the best parts of Countertalk’s history is our events. Here’s a run down of our biggest and best so far:

 

Countertalk x BREAD

Sept 2018

 

Our first food event involved getting some of our favourite bakeries in a room together for a night of bread based snacks, networking and talks from the industry’s finest.

Our event sold out in minutes and we were joined by over 100 of London’s keenest bread enthusiasts, on top of this the bakery owners got to connect and we saw some meaningful partnerships begin

 

St. JOHN Bakery; Fergus Henderson and Trevor Gulliver spoke on the origins of the famous St. JOHN sourdough

Pump Street Bakery; Chris on the story of Pump Street Bakery

Toast Ale; We learnt all about how the idea for Toast Ale came about using waste bread

The Dusty Knuckle Bakery; Rebecca and Daisy gave an iconic talk on how they started the bakery, a talk that cried out for a follow up Netflix series if you ask us and our audience

Margot Bakery; Provided us with Sourdough Babka, Challah and beautiful sourdough

Brick House Bakery; The story of our much loved Brick House Bakery by Fergus and Sharmin Jackson

Little Bread Pedlar; Sam Rawlings on sourdough starters

We sent everyone home with a goodie bag that we still see popping up all over London, filled with doughnuts, cookies and bakery goods.

 

Pasta & That

January 2019

An unforgettable evening at the Wild by Tart studio that still rears it’s head in many conversations, a night of demos, talks and most importantly eating!

 

The concept was simple; showcase 6 different chefs from all over London who are doing their thing in the pasta world. Get them to demo their dishes in front of an audience of 100 willing participants who then eat each dish.
