HelenaEat Hackney is a world food tour within London’s most vibrant borough by writer and photographer Helena Smith. Eat Hackney explores the rich variety of restaurants, cafés, supper clubs, pop ups, community projects and food shops in the area. People share their favourite recipes, so you can cook and eat Hackney too. The Eat Hackney Cookbook raises funds for North London Action for the Homeless and the Hackney Migrant Centre.

SallyGuest blogger Sally Schafer writes the Drink Hackney strand of the blog. Sally is a travel journalist with a passion for London town, especially the side where the sun rises. Fond of liquids made from grapes, hops and beans, she also gets pretty excited about a shiny pot still.
