ferdiesfoodlab is proud to announce a new season in partnership w/ the London Kitchen Project based in Battersea. Seating up to 40 people, the London Kitchen Project is an exciting new food hub uses 100% renewable energy and dedicated to community and sustainability

ferdiesfoodlab’s 1st date is the 26th Sep, and we’ll be running de-formalised social banquets fortnightly. In essence it’s about coming along with your friends, meeting new people and eating together. It’s BYO so you save a penny or two! (we suggest pairings to go with the food) We collect allergy information beforehand and design a bespoke menu for the evening. (A vegetarian option available)

ferdiesfoodlab is hosted by Simon Fernandez. With 7 years experience on the London popup and supper club scene he’s regarded as one of it’s pioneers.


Maida Hill Place is a well established food hub based Maida Vale who’s primary goals are community regeneration and as a food business incubator. This fantastic venue boasts a very high spec kitchen and great support from it’s local community. A community which we’re proud to be part of. It also makes a great venue for supper clubs and high end gastronomy alike and is soon to be hosting a food assembly. If you’re local you can sign up here.

Green9 is a visionary group providing (amongst a lot of other things) education and training geared towards implementation of sustainable models for cities. Including practical urban agriculture, architectural and technological considerations.

London Kitchen Project The London Kitchen Project, based in an old ice factory, is a private social enterprise that works to provide opportunities to develop and nurture young talent in the field and is committed to benefitting the local community. Their aim being that non-profit and community activities will focus on enhancing knowledge around food, health and the link between good learning and nutrition; supporting the disadvantaged of all ages in exploring learning and career opportunities in the food business; engaging with food production and distribution, urban and rural, small and big, to increase sustainability in the food supply chain.

More About . . . . 

I am co-founder and chef of the highly acclaimed Fernandez and Leluu supper club. I have really enjoyed doing it, the cooking the experimenting, and meeting people. Hosting events at Uyen's place, for what I can only describe as a pretty funky, switched on crowd, serving 6 - 8 courses of fab flavours, has been hard work. But it's been very rewarding to see all those smiling faces when I finally get the opportunity to leave the kitchen and go and mingle at the end of the night. We've done a variety of events for folks such as Yell, After Eights, Unearthed, Action Against Hunger, The Jamie Oliver Foundation, Ryvita, Green & Blacks which have all gone fabulously, darling!

I spent Christmas and New Year cooking in the Alps, and my "break" away really got me thinking about life . . . on my return to England I was lucky enough to be offered a beautiful venue to host events in so I've decided to take the offer and set up ferdiesfoodlab.

It's a little different from Fernandez and Leluu. A few years back I threw a birthday banquet. To set the mood, I asked everyone to bring a large goblet for wine drinking, a tankard for beer and to arrive at 7PM for 7.30: - sorry about the photos, 2 mega pixel phone cam was top end back then!
34 people, 1 living room, loads of food, wine, music and conversation!

This event was later recalled as, "mind boggling", I love it. We all had a great time! Above: Aftermath.

The last venue is a little different to my old lounge . . . .
