Eco Chef Tom Hunt has collaborated with Chef Danny Jack to create a special meal based around his recent cookbook, Eating for Pleasure, People & Planet.
Danny used to work with Tom at his restaurant Poco in Bristol, and since then the two have collaborated together on numerous events – both with a shared passion for sustainability and delicious food.
This meal was prepared using organic and agroecological ingredients from Tom and Danny’s favourite farms and suppliers in London, the UK and Europe. These producers are pushing the envelope, practising environmentally regenerative farming methods that build soil and support biodiversity.
Dishes include sharing dishes of Musabaha (a rich warm hummus of Hodmedod’s British pulses) with hemp oil, Aleppo pepper and rose petals and Caramelised salsify and shallots with thyme, rhubarb and hazelnuts plus the pure decadence of Rotation risotto with truffle salt (with the option of a whole truffle for extra indulgence).
It wouldn’t be Valentine’s without the Single origin chocolate fondant, walnut cream, rye and cacao breadcrumbs followed by Rose, cardamom and pistachio marshmallow.
The duo have also partnered with Aldwick Estate for an incredible English sparkling wine to compliment the meal.
