Fare of London Taste of Fare summer event 

Fare of London's Taste of Fare summer events held in July featured a 'Through the Looking Glass' theme, with food and drink featuring wrong-way-round canapés, White-Rabbit-in-the-lavender cocktails, Cheshire Cat cheeses, Wonderland flower salad making, as well as ‘drink me’ potions.

Mr Twit's Odious Ale

Bompas & Parr is working with 40FT Brewery to create new and repellent beer, Mr Twit’s Odious Ale. With the permission of the Roald Dahl Estate, they have taken a swab from Roald Dahl’s writing chair at The Roald Dahl Museum and Story Centre, from which they will culture the native yeast and use it to brew beer. It will be available for the first time during Dinner at the Twits, an immersive experience being hosted from 4 September to 30 October at The Vaults, Waterloo.

Aunt Gertrude's Tipsy Tea

Inspired by references to Shakespeare, Aunt Gertrude's Tipsy Tea is available at London's Mr Fogg's Tavern, with a menu filled with literary quotes that have been adapted from some of Shakespeare's most famous plays, including 'Et Chai, Brute' and 'Fall to your knees, Tanqueray to the Gods'.
