Does anyone actually ever enjoy travelling on the underground? For most of us it is just a way to get from A to B. Unless of course you don't know where you are going - then the journey becomes one of excitement and anticipation. That is the experience Gingerline hope to give as they return for a fourth year running.
A mystery trip on the Jubilee line will take you on a journey of top-secret feasting at unknown restaurants. Gingerline events run from the 24th September through October on Wednesdays to Saturdays. All you have to do is book, and then on the night turn up near the Jubilee line at 6pm with your phone. You will be texted which train station to go to, after which you follow the markers that will lead you to your feasting destination. It isn't just about the food, of course; it is also a night of stunning theatrics. The theme of the last Gingerline event was 'Planet Gingerline', which had a menu of:
Pre Flight-Protein Pack
Dehydrated vegetable salad with mango & goats cheese lollipops.
UFO Giant squid ink and seafood ravioli on a roast pepper coulis with micro-herbs..
The Millenium Falcon Smokey wild duck ballotine with beef and herb stuffing, crispy skin shard with aubergine croquettes, seasonal greens and cardamom infused butternut squash puree.
White Jupiter White chocolate spheres with lemon vanilla mousse, berries, ginger popping space dust and a disc of poppy-seed caramel.
