On this delicious, unforgettable tour of Borough Market – one of London’s most iconic institutions – you’ll get the opportunity to taste some of our expert guide’s favourite seasonal products while creating your own delicious hamper. Choose between cheeses, preserves, sweets and charcuterie and allow Mimo to package them up into a beautiful, Christmas gift for whomever you choose (or keep it for yourself, we won’t tell!).
Meet in our cookery school in one of the Market’s lovely historic buildings and join our multisensory tour taking in the sights, smells, sounds, and tastes of Borough Market. The Market’s roots date back over 1000 years, and it’s been in the same exact spot for the last 300. Tradition is strong but so too is innovation. You’ll meet the characters and get behind the scenes information about the products, making your hamper a personalised gift with a story.
Once you have customised your hamper with that special someone in mind, head back to our school to enjoy more food, this time paired with great wine, around the table in our luxurious private dining room. We will put the finishing touches to your hamper and can even arrange delivery if you decide to order several for family, friends and colleagues.
Get in the holiday spirit with this unique combination of culinary experience and Christmas shopping!
This experience can also be gifted—what could be better than giving your friends or loved ones an experience touring Borough Market, with a holiday hamper included?
Raised in the Basque Country, Ander has always been serious about food – but it wasn’t until he moved to Dublin at 18 that this passion truly flourished. There, he began work as a chef and fell in love with the creativity and heat of the kitchen, a love that later took him to a trattoria in Milan and then back home to study at the Cebanc Culinary School in San Sebastián. After finishing his studies, he moved to London to work in the city’s first Basque restaurant, Donostia, and later Urban Caprice, a high-end catering company where he cooked for celebrities at exclusive events.
After eight years in the industry, Ander took some time to travel and eat his way around Southeast Asia. He explored 10 different countries, discovering new cooking techniques and devouring a new cuisine. The trip inspired him to go back to basics and perfect the art of baking, and he’s been obsessed with sourdough and choux since.
