Tredwells’ Charity: Share The Meal 

As the world’s first app against global hunger, the initiative reaches over 80 million people with food assistance across 80 countries, including Palestine, Lebanon and India. The programme allows users to ‘share their meals’ with children that need it most, and the funds can be followed as they are translated into either cash transfers, vouchers, e-cards, rations, or school meals.  

Tredwells’ Chef Patron, Chantelle Nicholson, is a founding member of Chefs’ Manifesto which works with chefs around the world in association with Sustainable Development Goal 2: Zero Hunger. She first paired with the World Food Programme in October, launching a Consider(Eat) Menu at Tredwells. This three-course offering highlights how balanced and delicious dishes can be made with produce or ingredients often viewed as surplus, or waste. The ever-evolving menu features dishes such as confit lamb belly with smoked yoghurt, chickpeas and mint, as well as swede cake with swede kimchi, cashew butter & smacked cucumber. Never has the humble swede been so delicious!.

For Chantelle and the Tredwells team, it was imperative to support the initiative that provides assistance to the global communities that need it most. As such, for the rest of 2019, a suggested donation of 25p per person will be added onto diner’s bills at Tredwells, with all proceeds to be donated to the cause, where 90% of the funds donated go directly to the on-the-ground operations. Patrons can also download the Share the Meal app, where they can donate a chosen amount with just a few clicks. 

The Consider(Eat) menu is available for the rest of 2019 and can be booked here: tredwells.com.

Heat the oil in a pan. When very hot (almost smoking), add the onions, carrot and any other vegetables you are using and brown well. Add the soy sauce and miso paste and cook for a minute. Add the ginger, garlic and peas and cook for a further 2 minutes. Finish with the salad leaves, so they wilt. Serve whilst hot.
