Seven famous chefs including Giorgio Locatelli, Claude Bosi and Anna Hansen are each to cook a course out of surplus ingredients at a Mardi Gras fundraising dinner for the FoodCycle charity.
FoodCycle provides meals for people in need from supermarket surplus, and the seven chefs will use the same sort of produce to cook at the dinner at the Grand Hall, Battersea Arts Centre on 27 February, 2014.
Six of the chefs involved are:
Cyrus Todiwala OBE
Anna Hansen MBE
One more mystery chef has yet to be announced.
Tickets are on sale via Grub Club for £180 each or a table of eight for £1,200.
Giorgio Locatelli, FoodCycle patron said: "In this day and age throwing food away is madness, especially when some don't have enough to eat and we have the means and technology to recycle and put leftovers to good use. This is why I am proud to be cooking at the FoodCycle Mardi Gras Feast, to help raise funds for such an important project whose focus is to limit the amount of food waste and tackle food poverty."
Mary McGrath, chief executive of FoodCycle CEO added: "We're delighted to be working with such amazing chefs for our Mardi Gras event and look forward to them taking on the challenge of cooking with surplus ingredients as our volunteers do at FoodCycle projects each week. The vital funds raised from the event will help us serve more meals to the increasing number of people at risk of food poverty in London and across the UK"
