We're all familiar with the relaxing Sunday ritual of brunch, but now it seems there's a new meal in town: le drunch, to be devoured, you guessed it, between lunch and dinner. And now, luxury French mustard company Maille is tempting us to try this Parisian custom at London's Old Spitalfields Market this week.
From Thursday 21 to Sunday 24 March, Maille is offering a free four-course le drunch with wine at their market boutique. Michelin-starred French chef Hélène Darroze from The Connaught is behind the menu, so you're really in for a treat – I went last week, check out my pictures below.
You can book online, but don't be disheartened if you can't secure a slot – the team will accommodate as many walk-ins as they can. They'll also supply you with cosy blankets, as eating in the market can be a bit nippy, but make sure you wear something warm, too! I managed to convince Hélène to share her crab cake recipe (below), so even if you can't make it to Maille, you can experience a little le drunch decadence at home.
