Nothing Wasted: Surplus Food Christmas Pop-Up

Evening dining inside Brunel's Museum
While the Christmas season is more associated with overindulgence than anything, it's not the case for everyone. Food recycling charity FoodCycle is laying on three-course dinners with eco-minded chef Tom Hunt at a Forgotten Feast pop-up restaurant in Rotherhithe's Brunel Museum. Running only this week, the menu is filled with forgotten ingredients that are underused and underappreciated, and inspired by the Feast of Seven Fishes served on Christmas Eve in Italy.

Expect from the four-course set menu dishes like carpaccio of scallop frills and megrim sole, risotto nero, forgotten fish stew of gurnard, pouting and red signal crayfish, garbanzo stew with bolotti beans, sorrel salsa, chard and fennel. For the £35-a-head price, diners also get to see the Grand Entrance Hall to Brunel's tunnel under the Thames. Do hurry, because tickets are selling out quickly. Profits from ticket sales go towards the charity's efforts to get surplus food from restaurants, supermarkets and shops onto the plates of hungry people suffering food poverty this season.
