Kiwi Entrepreneurs - A Taste of Home Supper Club
Join us for a very special Supper Club with a dose of inspiration from a panel of Kiwi foodies.
We're kicking off 2020 with one of our favourite types of event to put on - and we know you all love it too - a night with the sole focus on food and drink!
Our mix of inventiveness, hard-working nature and playfulness as Kiwis means we have something special to offer; and when we combine this in the right amounts... it's a recipe for success (sorry, couldn't resist!).
On the last Monday in January, we'll have the chance to hear four top Kiwi food and drink entrepreneurs share the stories about how they made a mark in the London hospitality scene.
Fittingly, Ozone Coffee Roasters have just opened their beautiful new home in Emma Street, Bethnal Green - and we're lucky enough to have the place to ourselves!
The Ozone whanau will serve a sharing-plate style dinner, before we settle in for our guest speakers followed by a Q&A session.
The Ozone team will be joined by:
