"Representing Europe - That Hungry Chef - 25th, 26th & 27th July
Dubbed as one of coolest supper clubs in London, Pratap Chahal - a.k.a. That Hungry Chef - has cooked with the likes of Gordon Ramsay, at Chez Bruce, Cinnamon Club and Galvin Bistrot. His food is inspired by his travels around the world, with a satisfying, humble nod to his traditional Indian roots.
Flying the flag for Europe, Pratap’s Olympic themed menu will showcase delights from Spain, Greece, Britain and France. Think fluffy fennel and oregano bread with creamy Tzatziki and rare rump of lamb with lashings of smoked aubergine purée.
Tickets cost £40
Representing Asia - Papi’s Pickles - 1st, 2nd & 3rd August
Food with the feel good factor. Papi’s Pickles is a family-run social enterprise that not only cooks up delicious Sri Lankan and South Indian fare, the profits go back into the community to help support Sri Lankan women who have relocated to the UK.
Shathini Ramanan is one of the head chefs of the enterprise, and will be moonlighting at Anise, serving up a selection of her warm-hearted South Indian delicacies. Expect hearty Sri Lankan mutton rolls and flakey filo pastries, succulent swordfish sothi and crumbled potatoes cooked in creamymcoconut milk.

Remaining close to her roots, Masterchef Professionals semi-finalist Luciana Berry celebrates her vibrant Brazilian culture by serving up a moreish selection of traditional Latin American cuisine, brimming with exotic ingredients, colours and spices.
