BILLINGSGATE FISH MASTERCLASS
Fish lovers who work in Canary Wharf have a treat in store on Friday 30 Sep, when fine-dining Plateau’s chef, Allan Pickett, will be taking a fish masterclass at Billingsgate Market. During a jolly and informal evening, Allan will show you how to make two fish dishes – shallow fried plaice fillets with French beans and almonds and nut-brown butter sauce, and roast fillet of sea bass, olive oil and herb dressing. Then, of course, you’ll sit down and enjoy your evening’s work with a glass or three of wine. A great chance to be part of the action of one of London’s most famous food markets, with a Canary Wharf foodie star. Friday 30 September from 18:30-21:30 at Billingsgate Seafood Training School, Billingsgate Market, E14 5ST. Places are £85 per person and the class size will range from 12-14. For more information or to book, call Billingsgate Seafood Training School on 020 7517 3548.

BERLUSCONI PIZZERIA OPENS
Bunga Bunga, the Berlusconi-referencing, Italian tongue-in-cheek pizzeria, bar and karaoke hotspot in Battersea has opened. If that’s not mouthful enough, go along to the place itself and stuff yourself on surprisingly accomplished, well put together pizzas and all sorts of meats from Italy that are found on antipasti boards. Bunga Bunga is destined to become the darling of the Battersea and Chelsea crowd, and others may well be lured by its unique promise of fun, singing and really good food. 37 Battersea Bridge Road, SW11 3BA. Tel: 020 7095 0360.

HERON TOWER’S DRIFT GOES AUTUMNAL
Think gorgonzola, walnut and rocket salad with pears, paprika and honey and rocket and butternut squash salad with Machego cheese, or go liquid with Dorado rum and the Skinny Bakewell Sour. The new menu is a real taste of the season. Side entrance, the Heron Tower, thedriftbar.co.uk
