Grammy award-winning producer Naughty Boy launches his first pop-up kitchen
He spent August cooking up a storm on ‘Cooking with the Stars’ and now award-winning producer Naughty Boy is taking up residency at BOXPARK Croydon this October.
The Naughty Boy Kitchen pop-up will be serving up Naughty Boy’s signature dishes celebrating the collision of his British upbringing and Pakistani heritage, and then adding his naughty kick.
Launching on Friday 1 October, the pop-up kitchen will feature at BOXPARK Croydon for two weeks. Fans and foodies will be able to enjoy his Keema Shepherds Pie and Pakistani inspired veggie chickpea rotis, served up with a selection of drinks that give as nod to his Asian roots. Naughty Boy will be donating a percentage from each dish to Dementia UK, a charity that he is an ambassador for and is close to his heart.
This isn’t the first time the Beyonce, Sam Smith and Emeli Sande hitmaker, has rolled up his sleeves and created something naughty in the kitchen. In 2018 he teamed up with global burger brand Shake Shack to create The Naughty One, a burger that was available for fans to purchase in one of their London sites. Since discovering his love for street food, Naughty Boy has cooked for Professor Green, Simon Cowell, Mary J Blige and Emeli Sande. On a TV appearance on the Lorraine Show in 2019, he arrived with Keema Shepherds Pie for the talk show host, which she described as ‘delicious!’.
Naughty Boy commented; ‘’I’m so excited to be bringing my dishes to BOXPARK Croydon. The energy of the venue is a perfect place for Naughty Boy Kitchen to start its journey. Cooking is another way for me to channel my creativity and I love that more people will be able to try my dishes next month. Dementia UK have been a huge support for my mum over the years and I’m really excited that through my dishes I will be able to contribute to helping others’’.
