Fare Healthy – A ‘Root To Fruit Banquet’

Tickets are now on sale for Fare Healthy the healthy food, fitness and wellbeing festival. Teaming up with four fab British chefs to launch the festival’s first ever supper club, ‘A Root To Fruit Banquet’, will be held on Saturday 4th February. The Root to Fruit chefs are pledging to create a meal that use zero-packaging to create a zero waste dining experience.

Chefs cooking on the night will be:

  • Tom Hunt, eco chef, food waste activist and chef patron of Poco restaurant
  • Gill Meller, head chef of River Cottage and author of new book Gather
  • Justin Horne, chef and founder of Tiny Leaf, London’s first zero waste restaurant
  • Tess Ward, chef, food writer and author of The Naked Diet cookbook
  • Peardrop London, catering company & lunch delivery service set up by chef Rose Lloyd Owen, founder of Fare Healthy

The four course menu will be entirely organic, vegetarian, agro-ecological, 100% British and most importantly, will use ingredients in their entirety, from their roots to their stalks, demonstrating how much of our food is thrown away. Root to Fruit Eating means to eat mindfully, reconnecting with our foods origin and nature in order to value our food, the planet and the farmers.

The menu will feature canapés by Peardrop London, including pickled quince and Norfolk Binham Blue on toast with borage. Gill Meller, Justin Horne and Tom Hunt will create a trio of tasting courses. Tess Ward will craft the dessert of spiced pumpkin ice cream with cardamom chocolate soil and hazelnut.

Wash it all down with organic wine or cocktails from Sipsmith and Jax Coco Bar.
