Since opening in Tooting earlier this year, Plot has been getting serious buzz from locals and food critics alike for their small plates and snacks inspired by classic British cuisine. But how peckish would you be feeling if you were served a dish made exclusively from ingredients which were about to discarded?
We all know there is a food waste problem in this country with far too much good food ending up in the bin, so Plot’s founders Mark Kimber and Harry Smith are doing something about it. The British restaurant is hosting a ‘waste dinner’ in partnership with The People’s Fridge, London’s first ever community fridge which collects unwanted, fresh food and donates to residents who need it. As they can’t tell what will be thrown away, the 4-course menu for this one-off event will remain unknown until the day. We can tell you, though, that there’ll be Negronis made from house-brewed vermouth, spices, Campari and bottles of already opened wine and a Cabbage Sour cocktail that uses pickling liqueur from the kitchen’s cabbage, cassis, gin, rosemary syrup and star anise.
If you fancy putting your money where your mouth is, tickets are still available for this unique cause, with 10% of each ticket being donated to The People’s Fridge.
The ‘Waste Dinner’ takes place on 30th May at Plot
