Just when you thought foodie pop-ups couldn’t get any crazier (we’re talking about that HEINZ Beanz pop-up in Selfridges) there’s now a potato pop-up hitting London. Yes you read that correctly, a pop-up dedicated entirely to potatoes. Not just any old potatoes, though, we’re talking Jersey Royals, aka the king of all potatoes.
To celebrate the start of the Jersey Royal season, for 2 days only (we really wish it was longer), you can get your hands on a cone of hot jersey royals, smothered in a minty buttery dream with a touch of Jersey sea salt. TV presenter and farmer, Jimmy Doherty, will be at the pop-up talking all things Jersey Royals including how important the climate is, when the growing season is and why these potato gems are the only root vegetable in the UK to carry a protected designation of origin status (we told you they are the king of all potatoes). The simply minted potatoes will be accompanied by a choice of three dips created by Jimmy himself.
If there’s anything to get the couch potatoes up and out, this is it…
Just Jerseys with Jimmy Doherty will be held in Covent Garden on 22nd and 23rd April
