Camden was not always the bohemian destination it is today. Long before the Punk movement and Camden Market’s staggering 7.8m visitors per year, it was home to thousands of migrants from all over the world.
An area close to the centre of London, it provided accommodation for industrial workers, building canals and railroad links. Stepping away from the overcrowded Camden Lock, Fox&Squirrel sneaks into quiet back streets off the slightly forlorn Camden High Street to visit hidden restaurants and cafes that underpin the area’s diverse background. Set over two hours, this is an opportunity go back in time to sample food from Turkey, Croatia, Southern Italy, Portugal, Cyprus; food from communities that thrive in Camden, then and now.
