An Alternative Valentine's Banquet: Trevor Beattie and the Forgotten Feast in Shoreditch

Forgotten Feast (previously, & previously) are back, this time working with Trevor Beattie's Charitable Foundation to produce a special Alternative Valentine's Banquet.  Tickets are £35 (earlybird rate) and include a 3-course gourmet feast a welcome cocktail, a live DJ and karaoke provided by Lucky Voice.

"This roaming restaurant will serve delicious but unloved, foods from the hoards of organic veg and meat that is often unnecessarily destined for landfill. Unexpected gastronomic gems are always discovered when sourcing food from surplus. The Forgotten Feast will delight and surprise guests with a bountiful feast at Space No.9, Shoreditch’s most exclusive venue.
All diners will sit together; it’s a banquet of lovers, friends and independents alike. Whilst food is shared, awareness will be raised of industrial food wastage – with all event proceeds helping tackle food poverty.
We believe the 20 million tonnes of annual food wastage that exists within our society is inexcusable.
The Forgotten Feast is a restaurant that supports the ugly, the unwanted and the unloved. It creates an unforgettable celebration of taste that centres itself on the use of wild and seasonal foods, surplus foods and foods that have been forgotten or ignored by the modern world. Trevor Beattie’s, The Jack and Ada Beattie Foundation advocates the forgotten and overlooked. They actively support initiatives tackling food shortage through their grant schemes.
The Proceeds from every ticket sold will go towards tackling food waste and relieving food poverty."
