Dent & McKenzie

Grace Dent, critic, author and broadcaster, has joined forces with food-event guru Kate McKenzie to present Deptford Bites Live on Saturday 7th April 2018. This one-day festival of eating & drinking runs from 10pm to 4pm at Deptford Market Yard.

Grace Dent will curate and host a series of talks which picks apart Deptford’s new status as ‘up and coming’? Who are the faces to watch? What are the dishes and drinks to try? Why Deptford and why now? And as this new chapter for SE8 begins… who gets to tell the story?

Talks include:

We Come in Peace – anchoring the past’ – featuring Adrian Luckie from Mama’s Jerk and Saima Arshad from Deptford Esquire, chaired by Chris Waywell – Associate Editor of Time Out.

Deptford Ditches Dairy?’ – As Deptford’s demographic shifts, so does the demand for vegan food. Is Deptford ready for a dairy-free, seitan-heavy, tofu-loving future? Vegan and non-vegan foodies, chefs and restauranteurs including Vegan ambassador Jay Brave are on the panel.

‘A new chapter. Who’s story is this anyway?’ – As Deptford starts a new chapter, who gets to tell this story? Grace Dent, Zoe Adjonyoh and MiMi Aye discuss how at the highest levels of food and restaurant influence the power is still mainly in the hands of a very narrow group of people.
