Food 2.0 Nom Nom Nom - Win Lunch in Tube Carriage Office

I've been working with
TrustedPlaces, Cookery School and SpinVox and many other kind supporters on an interactive version of MasterChef or bloggers' cook-off, which took place on Sunday 18th May. We took 24 bloggers, foodies, geeks, photographers, online reviewers & senior members of interesting internet companies, put them together in pairs and they had to prepare a three course meal for four people in two and half hours. Photos are already being uploaded but from next week, you'll get the opportunity to vote for your favourites. You could also get a chance of winning lunch at "possibly the coolest office in London".

My friend James Grieve runs Nabokov, an innovative theatre company who have their offices in these old Jubilee Line Carriages - the Tube offices in the sky on Great Eastern Street, London.

Since first blogging about them, they've appeared on Kottke.org, coudal, scottberkun and lots of other cool blogs from around the world.

A lot of you also wanted me to try to arrange a visit to go up to their offices. Well I had a chat to James via text (he's currently in New York) and he's very kindly offered to take two of you (and possibly me) to pick up lunch at the brill BLT (Big Loaded & Tasty) sandwich shop & then have the lunch back in his Tube offices. Hopefully, the weather will be better than when I went and you'll get some stunning views across the city too.

Nom Nom Nom has a charity element as we didn't just want to have 24 people make and then gorge on lovely food without at least thinking about people who don't have the luxury to do this. We're raising money for Action Against Hunger to help those people in some way.


We already had a real time raffle on Sunday but from next week we'll be holding an online prize draw where you can make a donation/s to be in with a chance of winning a number of foody prizes, this lunch being one of them. So keep an eye on the charity prize draw page for details of how you can enter & find out what the other prizes are.
