About a month ago I was invited to a special preview lunch with Tim Anderson as he prepared his menu with Sujan Sarkar for Citroen’s pop up restaurant to launch their DS5 car. The event was called Delicious by DS5 and all the proceeds went to Fareshare. Sadly I was unable to attend the preview but I did get an invitation to the actual pop up restaurant - thankfully as there were only 500 tickets released! Read my review and take a look at some of the amazing food.
Fareshare is a national UK charity supporting communities to relieve food poverty.
It is at the centre of two of the most urgent issues that face the UK: food poverty and food waste. The charity addresses these issues in three ways:
- Providing quality food – surplus ‘fit for purpose’ product from the food and drink industry – to organisations working with disadvantaged people in the community
- Providing training and education around the essential life skills of safe food preparation and nutrition, and warehouse employability training through their ‘Eat Well Live Well’ programme
- Promoting the message that ‘No Good Food Should Be Wasted’
Another interesting event is Canstruction at Canary Wharf from 25 June to 7 July.It’s international design competition in which some of the world’s leading architecture and engineering firms go head-to-head building incredible structures from 60,000 cans of food! Teams of professional designers, architects and engineers will battle it out to complete the magnificent giant sculptures in just 12 hours.The sculptures will be then displayed throughout Canary Wharf for two weeks when you can go along and cast your vote for the best one. Fareshare will then redistribute the cans to over 6,000 vulnerable people in Tower Hamlets and across London with over 55,000 nutritious meals.
Well done Citroen for such a fantastic initiative for a great cause. And congratulations to Tim Anderson on creating such an amazing and creative menu for a truly memorable evening.
