Everyone’s a foodie these days, but not everyone is living in Levenshulme. So, if you’re thinking about making the journey out into the suburb for its 2013 Food and Drink festival, here are our top 3 suggestions for things to try out:

Zambian Choir & African Food
As part of its three-week fundraising tour around the UK, the Praise Africa choir is popping by Levenshulme for one night and one night only – singing traditional African songs, while traditional African food is served (and a rather tradition-breaking vegetarian option) from 5pm til 7pm. Funds raised are going towards the New Beginning School in Zambia
Sun 23 Jun, Inspire Centre, 747 Stockport Road, Levenshulme, M19 3AR, FREE entry (donations suggested at £3 minimum)

Vintage Veggie Feast
A rarity for the carnivore-averse among us: an entire evening without having to fret about whether they’ve mixed in parmesan, used gelatine or accidentally made the soup with chicken stock. Places, unsurprisingly, are vanishing fast – and there were only 12 to begin with – as Hilly Barber serves up a meat free evening on vintage plates and finest glassware at her own actual house.
Sat 22 Jun, Details of address given out with booking, £25 – call 07753 957 638 to book

The Buttery Pop-Up Restaurant
Buttery celebrates the best in British food, and to celebrate Levenshulme Food and Drink Festival, they’re converting their headquarters into a pop-up restaurant serving potted crab, parsnip and parmesan tart, roast saddle of lamb, rhubarb jelly and some other ridiculous, tasty-sounding things too – infact, you can see the whole menu here. A true one off.
Sun 23 – Tue 25 Jun, The Buttery, 4 Prince Albert Avenue, M19 3EA, 7pm, £30 (£47.50 with selected wines), Tel: 0776 658 3258
