Food Network On Fire Festival


Have your tongs at the ready because we’re about to heat up your summer. Join us (and our friends) for three days in the heart of London, for our first ever festival, Food Network On Fire.

Focusing on our love of all things barbecue, our celebrity chefs will be sizzling up a storm as they put their techniques to the test. We want you to watch, learn and get involved – just mind your eyebrows!

From BBQs to grills, spider burners to smokers, we’re serving up the best in outdoor food.

Where: East Piazza of Covent Garden

When: Friday, 17 August, 1pm – 10pm. Saturday, 18 August, 11am – 8.30pm. Sunday, 19 August, 10am – 6pm

Price: It's free!!

Of course, we've not forgotten about your sweet tooth, or ours! We’ll have a dedicated cupcake decorating booth brought to you by The Cupcake Bakehouse where you can hone your skills with their cupcake wizards and be treated to guest appearances by celebrity chef, Lotte Duncan.

Perfect your piping swirls, create cute toppers and then sprinkle with edible glitter – what better way to spend your weekend? If it's just a cupcake you're craving, there will be plenty of them, ready to go, created by our friends at The Cupcake Bakehouse.

Celebrity Chef Demonstrations:

Andy Bates: This cheeky chap is a dab hand with a pie but how will he fare with a flame? You’ll have to join him to find out!

Jun Tanaka: Known for his precision and elegance in the kitchen, what can we expect from Jun outside?

Tristan Welch: With a love of seasonal British ingredients we’re excited to see what he’ll rustle up.

Lotte Duncan: A country bumpkin, there is nothing that Lotte doesn’t know about cake. She can frost, swirl and add a sprinkling of glitter faster than you can say 'cupcake'.
