Dishes from around the world - from Bangladesh to Barbados, China, Denmark, France, Ghana, Guyana, Italy and Jamaica - were served up at a community event that aimed to unite everyone through a love of food.
The day at Sunnyside Community Gardens in Hazellville Road opposite Elthorne Park in Archway was organised by community group Elthorne Pride.
Islington Council funded the event which saw more than 750 pre-packed meals handed out to 120 attendees.
Entertainment was put on by Pan Fever steel band and DJ Victor ‘Afro' Anderson, and Islington's mayor Troy Gallagher joined participants to give a speech.
Elthorne Pride chair Sandi Phillips said: "Neighbours came together through the medium of food, with the aim of having a greater understanding of their neighbour’s cultures and what particular dishes mean to them.
