The Forgotten Feast in Hackney Downs
A banquet is being held at The Russet at the Hackney Downs Studio Site on Friday the 9th of March. Chef Tom Hunt will use surplus ingredients that would have gone to waste for no reason other than that they are wonky, in the wrong packaging or not needed by the shops. Everyone will sit together for the feast so come alone, with loved ones or with family – all welcome. The feast will cater for vegetarians and carnivores.
Tickets are £25 and £1 of that will go directly to FairShare and will help feed four hungry people.
The menu is as follows:
This is the organisers’ dream menu; of course food is sourced at the last minute, so expect some last minute surprises!
Potted hare with chilli and cacao
Cod’s cheek (the fishermans fillet) croquettes
Smoked salmon and ricotta on bruchetta
Harira soup with E5 sourdough
Salt boiled lambs head or Cilantro falafal with harissa
Chickpea puree with cumin and greens
Lentils with salsa verde and grilled peppers
Braised chicken hearts with Oloroso
Carrots with orange and cinnamon
Blood orange jelly, roasted rhubarb, and ice cream with a ginger biscotti
