A History of Popups

James Beard Chef´s Tribute – Rockefeller Center, New York

A collab with 30 of the world´s hottest chefs to cater for a charity gala organised by City Meals and The James Beard Foundation. More than 1,500 distinguished guests in attendance. PFGT worked alongside Cristina Bowerman (Glass); Wolfgang Puck (CUT); Farid Zadi (Revolutionario); Maria Loi (Loi Estiatorio) and Daniel Boulud (Boulud Sud) among others.

Pretty F*cking Good Toast kitchen residency at Machine No. 3

With a menu selection of gourmet toasts with foraged and the best possible ingredients, this pop up in a tiny Homerton cocktail bar got us a fair amount of media attention.

Glastonbury Festival – Pilton

A partnership with Greenpeace UK where we built a fully-fledged café from the ground up to cater for more than 1,000 people a day with an all-vegetarian and organic café menu. Diners included Jeremy Corbyn, Michael Eavis and Jarvis Cocker. Thom Yorke swung by too, but he said he wasn't hungry.

The Weekend Brunch Takeover – Myddleton Arms

In collaboration with coffee experts Hirsinger and Strauss, PFGT was involved in the War on Average campaign, with a mission to take brunch at the Myddleton Arms in Canonbury to the next level. That´s the one where we served a mackerel tartare with ants.

British Airways VIP lounge – Heathrow Airport, London

A commission by the government of Malta to offer an array of traditional Maltese foods on canapé-sized toasts - over 800 people in attendance.

The Weekend Brunch Takeover – Stour Space

One of London´s most sought after independent art galleries commissioned us to take over their café kitchen for six months, with a brief to organise Hackney Wick´s most loved brunch. Mission accomplished.
