Once upon a dine…

Once upon a time in a land far, far away…well North London, a generous restaurant by the name of Almeida hosted an evening of childhood nostalgia where adults can relive their favourite tales all for a good cause. Guests can enjoy a 3 course dinner, inspired by fairytales and folklore of the past and present, whilst raising money for children’s charity NSPCC.

Three prestigious head chefs; Tommy Boland of Almeida, Tim Allen of Michelin starred Launceston Place and Tom Cook from Pont de la Tour have each created a dish that will endeavour to show the creativity of a child’s mind. Tim’s starter is forbidden fruit (an apple served on a ‘forest’ floor with langoustine and wood sorrel) will be followed by Tommy’s main course three little pigs (a ‘surprise’ pork dish served with pear in a cauldron) and finished with Tom’s dessert the witches’ cottage (a gingerbread house for the table to share). Aside from the food guests can also enjoy a welcome ‘cock-tale’ on arrival, amuse bouche, pre-dessert and half a bottle of wine per person.

The evening will be hosted by award winning journalist and advocate of the NSPCC, Robert Crampton, who will also be presenting a range of exciting live and silent auction lots with prizes from the likes of The Broad Gallery, Sipsmith Distillery, The Dorchester and D&D Wine. So nab yourself a ticket in the name of charity and transport yourself back to the days of Brother’s Grimm.

Once upon a dine… takes place 20th April, tickets are £75 per person and can be purchased here: www.almeida-restaurant.co.uk
