Zürich meets London: A Festival of Two Cities

by Newsdesk - Thursday April 21, 2016 9:04 am

Through a series of cultural, culinary, business and science events, this citywide festival will showcase the very best that the two cities – Zurich and London – have to offer. 

Food is the way to a city’s heart and the Zürich meets London ‘festival hub’ at the Borough Market Hall will present a selection of specialities. In the pop up market, artisan producers will offer bites to eat and delicious produce to take back home, including the world-renowned Züri-honey; the sausage of the city, Stadtjäger; or the rock hard yet honey-sweet biscuits, Tirggel.

Chocoholics will find handmade pralines by Taucherlichocolatier; Leibacher will be offering fresh Swiss ginger bread; and sausage fans will be able to taste a Cervelat, Switzerland’s favourite sausage. Other exhibitors include: Gents Swiss Roots Tonic Water; Stoll Café Zurich; zesty Turicum Gin flavoured with the blossoms of the linden; and many more original Zurich products.

Foodie lovers can also satisfy their hunger at Tibits vegetarian and vegan pop-up restaurant (originally founded in Zurich) or enjoy a drink at the gin & juice bar whilst listening to music from a variety of DJ’s, live acts and the festival’s very own pop-up radio station.

And as an extra treat, from Thursday to Saturday, diners can enjoy an extraordinary Dada gala dinner prepared by Fabian Spiquel, head chef at the Michelin starred Maison Manesse in Zurich. The tasting menu takes inspiration from Dada in celebration of the 100th year anniversary of Zurich’s seminal home-grown art movement and will use the freshest produce on hand at Borough Market. Diners will be treated to Dadaistic performances in between courses, making for a truly memorable evening!
