Brace yourself, London. The most Instagrammed breakfast item of our times is getting its own event. That’s right: pop-up pro Meredith O’Shaughnessy is hosting a five-course avocado brunch this Sunday.
The fruit has been liberated from its toasty shackles and is finally getting the gourmet treatment it deserves. Avocado soup, risotto, cocktails, ice cream and chocolate; the green guys are getting puréed, baked, deep-fried and frozen. Who knew they were so damn versatile?
Anyone who’s ever bought one of these wrinkly beauties knows they aren’t cheap so, of course, neither is this feast. Tickets cost £55 but that includes the food, a cocktail, a ‘grow your own avocado’ kit and the bragging rights for having attended one of the most zeitgeisty hipster happenings ever. Culinary sensation or death knell to the avo trend? Let’s just hope it doesn’t all go pear-shaped.
Avo-Brunch Pop-Up takes place on May 28 and May 29 April at The Printworks Kitchen. Find out more at www.meredithcollective.co.
