'Forgotten Food' Finds a Home in London
FoodCycle, a charity that takes unwanted food and creates meals for those in need, is opening a pop-up restaurant in London to showcase what can be done with unwanted and surplus food June 21 – 24.
With the help of The Forgotten Feast and eco-chef Tom Hunt, volunteers, surplus food, and spare kitchen spaces, Londoners can enjoy delicious meals while helping fight food waste.
Diners enjoy a three-course meal of vegetables, fruits, wild ingredients, and unwanted cuts of meat and fish donated by restaurants due to surplus.
The menu consists of beetroot hummus with crudités, foraged salad with broad beans dressing and sourdough croutons, rolled pig’s head porchetta with wild horseradish and rocket finished off with dessert, a chocolate torte with raspberries and mint granite.
The Forgotten Feast will be held in the Fleet River Bakery after 7:30pm each night. Tickets are €30 and proceeds go to the FoodCycle charity.
