MAP Studio Cafe, London


The Philosopher’s Stove

  • Date: 4th June 2016
  • Location: Three courses of food inspired by the adventures of Asterix
  • Venue: Philosopher's Stove

We’ve been mulling over this idea for a long time and we’ve finally got to make it happen! The Philosopher’s Stove has teamed up with Map Studio Cafe to throw a Gallic Banquet. Our chefs Thom and Stathis will recreate some of the main dishes found in our favourite all-time classic comic ‘The Adventures of Asterix’ (aka ‘Asterix and Obelix’).

We’ll be serving 3 courses and we’ll also have some live music to go nicely with the setting. However, we promise we won’t be recreating the tunes of infamous Cacophonix! Otherwise, feel free to tie our musicians up a tree 😉

Just to give you a teaser, there’ll be a choice of either salad or soup for the first course, wild boar or veggie option for main and a dessert. Plus, you’ll get to try our magic potion (the recipe will remain entirely secret). And you never know. You might see Frabala too around the corner 🙂

Advanced booking is required. Tickets cost £25. You can either book by calling us on: 0207 916 0545
or by booking directly through our ticket link;
