Ready, Steady, Cook! Francesco Mazzei & Merlin Labron-Johnson

Chefs Francesco Mazzei and Merlin Labron-Johnson will go head to head in a “Ready Steady Cook” challenge on Monday 28th January to raise awareness of food waste.

They will each create a variety of sharing dishes from ingredients provided by The Felix Project charity. The surplus food, from supermarkets, wholesalers and retailers, would otherwise go to waste. Diners will try the dishes and vote for their favourite using the BBC show’s iconic red tomato and green pepper score cards.

All proceeds from the night will go to Felix, which delivers surplus food to charities so they can provide healthy meals to those most in need.

The chefs will have help from staff at their restaurants. The event will be held on January 28th in the open kitchen at Mazzei’s newest restaurant Fiume, part of the Battersea Power Station development.

The event will start at 7pm. Tickets cost £35 which will include a three-course meal plus a glass of fizz. Buy tickets here.
