For one night only, FoodCycle will be hosting a unique evening of revelry, celebration a plenty as seven of the world’s finest chefs come together to cook an incredible seven-course feast at Carpenters’ Hall in the City of London on Thursday 27th February 2014. Anna is one of the chef’s contributing to the Mardi Gras Feast, in her own words:“As a keen supporter of Action Against Hunger for many years I’m very conscious of the global scale of starvation & any initiative which tackles this problem can only be a good thing. Minimising food waste and using as much of our produce as possible is also an important part of our sustainability philosophy at The Modern Pantry so I’m delighted to be involved with the Mardi Gras Dinner and to help raise awareness of the valuable work of FoodCycle”
