"It is an evening to recognise that all cultures and civilizations are contributors and crucial enablers of sustainable development."
Mecca Ibrahim

We work with so many amazing Women In the Food Industry who have sustainability at the core of their business models or have been making them as sustainable as possible and wanted to celebrate the efforts of the UN in creating Sustainable Gastronomy Day.

On 21 December 2016 the UN General Assembly designated 18 June as an international observance, Sustainable Gastronomy Day. They wanted to focus the world’s attention on the role that sustainable gastronomy can play. It's a day to recognise that all cultures and civilizations are contributors and crucial enablers of sustainable development. On the evening of the 18th June 2019 you can join us for an insightful and delicious night

With organic Prosecco & soft drinks on arrival, you'll watch demonstrations of delicious dishes using "wonky" veg by Rosalind Rathouse - founder of Cookery School in Little Portland Street (London's most sustainable cookery school) and Pervin Todiwala of Cafe Spice Namaste, Mr Todiwala's Kitchen and The Park Cafe in London.

You'll then enjoy Ros and Pervin's delicious dishes while exploring the issues behind sustainability in our insightful panel. Hosted by Mecca Ibrahim - co-founder of Women in The Food Industry the panel brings together the following: 

Ros Rathouse -  Founder of Cookery School at Little Portland Street 

Pervin Todiwala - Cafe Spice Namaste, Mr Todiwala's Kitchen and The Park Cafe in London

Anastasia Emanuel & Amelia Christie Miller - Food Chain & Feast Fairly   

Alicia Lawson - Commercial Director of Rubies in the Rubble

Linde Stael - CSR and Foundation Manager of Belazu
