London town is getting festive this December with indulgent pop-ups to sate the appetites of city dwellers.
Dolce by Ferrero Rocher
This London pop-up dessert destination is the first of its kind by Ferrero Rocher. Guests will enjoy a foodie journey with a tasting plate of five hand-crafted desserts, curated by chef Paul Hannagen of Cuisson fame. The experience is designed to demonstrate how all of the elements of a Ferrero Rocher chocolate come together, with the likes of a cocoa-roasted whole hazelnut wrapped in light praline mousse and a chocolate case brimming with silky ganache. Dolce by Ferrero Rocher is on in Covent Garden from 1 to 11 December 2016.

Londoners are a little obsessed by all things Scandinavian at the moment, especially at this time of year when wintry Scandi wonderlands seem all the more appealing. This London pop-up in the heart of Shoreditch is the brainchild of Meredith Collective, concept specialists behind some of the coolest brand collaborations and pop-ups in the city. Nordic Yulefest takes place inside candlelit caverns (the Disco Room and the Feasting Hall). While food platters are available in the Disco Room all night, those wanting a seated meal can embark on a five-course banquet, including barbecued reindeer, smoked duck, pickled herring tempura and torched mackerel. There are also Nordic cocktails and a Games Host overseeing festive games. Nordic Yulefest is on from 1 to 18 December 2016.

The Nutella Pop-up
The Fifth Floor Terrace of the Harvey Nichols department store in Knightsbridge has been transformed into an Italian alpine winter lodge to celebrate all things Nutella. Most of the menu goodies are breakfast or dessert inspired, from Poridgella oats with banana and Nutella, to Top O’ The Morning Trifle Parfait. There are also mini focaccias, yoghurt and berries, and scones, all topped with Nutella, of course. The Nutella Pop-up is on until 8 January 2017.
