Pop Up Restaurant

Celebrated chef Aneke Spacie has worked in some of the world’s best Michelin-starred restaurants including Rainer Becker at Zuma, Mark Hix, Alan Bird at the Ivy and Alain Ducasse in New York. Known to her colleagues as ‘Michelin Mum’, she now lives in Woking and runs the new and much-anticipated Waters Edge restaurant at Heather Farm, offers cookery classes, and runs exciting Pop Up restaurants ‘Food by Aneke’ which offer cutting edge creations which push the boundaries of culinary science and art. The artistic space of The Lightbox was therefore the natural choice of host for a series of ‘Food by Aneke’ Pop Ups.

“My wife and I came along to the ‘Food by Aneke’ Pop Up last Saturday and I would like to congratulate everyone involved for putting on a really splendid evening. Obviously the food was the star attraction (and it was absolutely brilliant!) but it takes more than excellent food to make an excellent evening. We thought that everyone involved made a positive contribution to the overall event by being friendly and informative.
