Following the success of the live cook-alongs last month, Borough Market is launching an online Easter eggs-travaganza.
Since we can’t actually go anywhere for Easter this year, London’s iconic Borough Market is throwing a huge, virtual festival to (hopefully) make things just that tiniest bit better.
The five day festival will see chefs, artists and Borough Market traders coming together on Instagram to share their tips and tricks live to you at home. The series will cover all-things cooking and drawing, so the whole family can get involved.
Between April 9-13, you can expect to see a host of Borough Market legends taking over, from Bread Ahead teaching you how to make hot cross buns, to the Borough Market Butchers offering advice on how to cook your meat. You can also cook-along with This Morning and ITV regular Juliet Sear, or award-winning blogger Poppy Loves London making her favourite crumble.
For the children, there’ll be a number of storytellings and draw-alongs with various authors and artists, as well as cook-offs between Borough Market chefs and recipes for the whole family to enjoy.
Here’s the full weekend lineup:

The market has been rearranged, to allow for two metre distancing between stalls and customers at all times. You can also order produce through Borough Market’s delivery service here.
