It's most definitely the time of year where everyone's searching for something seriously hearty to eat - and a month-long pop-up in Hackney aims to provide just that. Cassoulet Nights - as the name suggests - focuses on rural French cooking. The chef in charge of things is Jacob Rosen - the former Head Chef of Pitt Cue. He's teamed up with Quite Nice Wines to provide the perfect winter combo.

Updated with a first look at the food. As Darjeeling Express goes from strength to strength, Asma Khan has a new venture ready. Calcutta Canteen is an all-day North Indian/Bengali-inspired cafe in Carnaby and the big focus will be on filled bread buns called Pau buns.
If you're as partial to a bit of Baileys as we are come Christmas then you'll probably be pretty merry to hear that their Christmas pop up Treat Bar is coming back.
They popped up last year serving up boozy hot chocolate, cocktails and other treats and they're back again. So you can order up one of their specials - like Made in Chelsea folk or The Marshmallowist Oonagh Simm's limited edition Baileys marshmallows served over the classic on ice or salted
As if the King's Cross restaurant scene wasn't humming enough with the opening of Coal Drops Yard, the culinary buzz has spread to the station's environs. Following fast on the heels of Kaki's opening, comes a new pop-up restaurant and bar Tamashii.
What's particularly of note is the chap in the kitchen. Chef Wei has 35 years of experience under his belt, including time at Hakkasan and The Colony Club in Mayfair.
For this King's Cross popup, Wei's
So this is a rather interesting idea. The team behind Hide Restaurant and Hedonism Wines are taking the Hide concept literally just down the road on Piccadilly to the Burlington Arcade for a winter popup.
They'll be throwing open the doors to Hideaway shop and cafe on 19 November - so this will be somewhere to try chef Ollie Dabbous' food as well as stock up on your Christmas shopping.
The look and feel will apparently be 'Parisian bistro'. They'll

Already open is a popup matcha bar. OHH CHA BAR (pictured above) is currently serving up matcha and snacks at MUJI’s Tottenham Court Road store for two weeks.
Their menu features classic matcha blends, single cultivar selections as well as unusual loose leaf Japanese teas. And they'll be holding masterclasses so you can more easily whisk yourself up a cuppa at
A new Spitalfields popup sees a former City worker do just what so many of probably fancy doing - opening a restaurant based on the food in our favourite holiday destination.

Two sisters, who grew up on a vineyard, have teamed up to trial their idea for the perfect cheese and wine spot for Londoners. Max and Kelly Tupper's two month pop-up in Brixton will be all about the holy trinity of cheese, meat and wine.
"We don’t pretend to be connoisseurs," says Kelly, "but [we do] want to serve interesting wines from small producer vineyards without baffling guests with a confusing list [and] create a relaxed setting for an indulgent and fun
It's not too early to talk about Christmas is it? Probably not when it comes to the announcement that the Christmas-themed Miracle cocktail bar pop-up is making its way from The US to London to bring all the kitschy Christmas cheer.
It's become something of a phenomenon in the States, popping up in dozens of cities (a total of 51 last year and 70 planned this year). Essentially,
Hot Dinners rounds up some of the best food and restaurant pop-ups and events around town at the moment.

If you're a fan of chips, cheese and gravy - which seems fairly likely - then the news of the return of Air Canada's Poutinerie should bring joy to the heart. It popped up last year, and proved to be such a success that they're coming round for another pass this month, landing in Old Spitalfields Market.
As before, there will be the classic poutine -
So yes, it's getting a little on the chilly side at the moment. But then that means it's definitely time for a warming mac and cheese - and if you're near Oxford Street, this new pop-up might be just the thing.
You may have seen the Mac Factory at KERB in the past, but now they're set up inside at Debenhams on Oxford Street (at the back of the shop). Serving up made-to-order mac and cheese
