Pumpkin Rescue! Pop-Up Supper, Saturday 31st October

0001Fork to Fork this month is teaming up with #PumpkinRescue – a nationwide festival aiming to eradicate the 18,000 tonnes of waste pumpkin from Halloween…

Saturday October 31st 7.30pm. Pumpkin Pop-Up – A three course meal full of taste and ideas! Book Online

At Halloween, 2 in 5 of us will buy a pumpkin, carve and discard. Halloween might be a time for scares but this needless waste is a little too scary.

A team of Hornbeam volunteers have taken on the challenge of cooking a 3 course meal – with pumpkin in every course AND full of interesting flavours! In collaboration with Club Mexicana, Norman Loves and Organiclea they have been meeting every week and  planning a feast that’s full of ideas for managing this big seasonal glut.

Here’s a sneak preview of some of the menu…

…Raw pumpkin and beetroot carpaccio with marinated Kale salad…
Pumpkin seed and pistachio baklava served with a pumpkin spice latte…

If you’d like us to use your pumpkin – email volunteering@hornbeam.org.uk, and you can bring it in for us to hollow out and give back to you! (You can carve the scary face…)

Saturday October 31st 7.30pm £20 including booking fee.
