…the region where real winter magic happens

Festen is as much an exploration as it is a celebration of the food and literature from the Baltic region and the seas which surround it. A private office party for those who want to celebrate Christmas in a warm and friendly events space in east London, enjoying a menu of thoughtful cooking while being immersed in the culture and traditions of the Northern seas.

Benk + Bo x Kino Vino

Benk + Bo teams up with food writer, chef and curator Alissa Timoshkina to explore food from her native Russia and other Nordic countries situated around the Baltic Sea.
Alissa entered London’s food scene with her sell-out cinema supper club KinoVino four years ago. Since then as well as curating monthly cinema and food gatherings, Alissa hosts popups under her own name exploring the food of her motherland and the former Soviet Union. She has recently published her debut cookbook Salt and Time: recipes from a Russian kitchen.
