London Celebrates Canada Day in Style

London is a city that prides itself on its internationally and not least of all when it comes to its food. Long gone are the days of stodgy pub grub, these days London’s food scene rivals that of New York (and dare we even say, Paris?) — and that says a lot. And well, what the city lacks in agreeable weather it makes for with interesting pop-ups and even more interesting chefs.

For one day only, July 1, the people who brought us the smashing success that was Mile High will throw a Canada Day party as only they can. The one-off event, Vieux-Québec, will take place in Trafalgar Square and will be complete with a dazzling array of murals, blooming flower boxes, and, of course, plenty of jazz.

The talented Mile High chef, Ollie Templeton, will team up with Marc St Jacques, the executive chef at Toronto’s acclaimed Auberge du Pommier to create three mouth-watering, Canadian-inspired menus with seatings at breakfast, lunch and dinner. Expect tempting favorites like butterscotch pancakes with maple syrup and streaky bacon for breakfast and for dinner, diners will have a front row seat for the festivities while enjoying grilled lobster, hay-roasted pork belly and last but not least, smoked maple and bourbon ice cream.
