The 'Hungry Gap' Charity Dinner in Crystal Palace

Rachel de Thample

This one's a bit further out than most events I feature (geographically, that is) but it sounds great, and it's for an excellent cause, so whether you're a local or willing to travel, have a look at the details below.

"Crystal Palace Transition Town has teamed up with lovely Domali Restaurant to present this one-off opportunity to savour a three course meal woven with stories of SE19-grown and Fairtrade ingredients. 
The idea behind the meal is to promote a fairer deal for farmers in some of the world's poorest countries who produce the products we cannot produce ourselves, whilst showcasing what food we can produce locally even at the leanest time of year (known as the 'Hungry Gap').
Brockwell Bake London Country loaves with trio of Urban garden-inspired dips & Crystal Palace Park salad:
Beetroot & Spa Hill allotment poppyseed 
Crown prince & Westow Park caraway
Indian spiced chickpeas & Grow Mayow cavelo nero
*all the dips feature Fairtrade tahini and Fairtrade olive oil
Domali's wild and tame mushroom & red wine bourgignon with Bermondsey mash or Fairtrade basmati rice
*Fairtrade South African cabernet sauvignon and Fairtrade basmait rice
Spiced apple & Beulah Spa medlar cake with Vanilla Plaw Hatch yogurt
*Features Fairtrade vanilla, cardamom, sugar and olive oil
Dark chocolate torte with Penge 'hidden garden' rosehip syrup
*Features Fairtrade chocolate, spices and coffee
To take away: Crown Prince squash seeds to grow for Lambeth's Chelsea Fringe project which encourages people to grow squash and beans this year to store over winter. The ultimate and easiest way of preserving."

Where - 38 Westow St, London, SE19 3AH
