The Kingsmead Estate lies beyond the Hackney Marshes and is home to the Kabin, where the Good Companions, an over-50s association, meets on a weekly basis. Here, they explain the art of making Oxtail, which is a slow-cooking ritual that is as much about sourcing good ingredients as it is getting the lengthy cooking process right. While the food cooks you can learn about the Hackney Speedway and the stadium that now sits beneath the Olympic site.
