Persepolis Pop-Up News: October 2014

OK, so we’re planning not one but four pop-up events between now and Christmas. Three of them will be festive specials: something to think about if you are planning a yuletide knees-up this year. Details of these will appear in a day or so. In the meantime, we have a proper Autumn feast scheduled for Saturday November 1st…

A nice, albeit random, picture of some spiced carrots from our last event.
