As uncertainty and worries continue about the possible lengthening of lockdown, it’s hard to feel optimistic, but here’s a positive step by many of our most creative and supportive chefs. Hospitality for Heroes – the initiative responsible for providing nearly 100,000 meals to the NHS – has announced the launch of cookbook Recipes for Heroes.
The book brings together recipes from more than 20 of the UK’s most-loved chefs, with funds raised ensuring that Hospitality for Heroes can continue its efforts to feed NHS workers throughout the pandemic. Many of the chefs have been directly involved in the NHS meal production efforts, and there’s a few new faces, too.
Adam Handling, Sally Abe and Ikoyi’s Jeremy Chan are among those sharing their recipes, as well as Mrytle founder Anna Haugh, Alex Head of Social Pantry and AngloThai’s Jon Chantarasak. Launched in partnership with Project Screen by Prenetics, Recipes for Heroes will be available online or in hardback form to donors.
Anyone who donates £10 or more throughout January will receive a copy of the e-book, and those who donate more than £35 will get a hardback copy. All donations will go directly to the cause, and £20 is enough to provide a week’s worth of meals to a frontline worker.
