Charity Event: The Drapers Arms Invasion

People do weird and wonderful things to raise money for charity. Consider the idea of living in a shop window with 300 deadly spiders for 3 weeks as an example. Me, I prefer to cook. I’ve Macmillan Coffee Morning-ed and I’ve Big Lunched, now it’s time to crank things up a gear or ten.

This time I’m joining forces with Ollie, Rambo and Lizzie, to raise extra money for Ollie and Rambo’s Marathon Fund; they’ll be running 26 miles around London in aid of Action Against Hunger. So, for one night only the 4 of us will be taking over the kitchen at The Drapers Arms pub in Islington and cooking dinner for 55 people. The gaffer, Nick Gibson is letting the 4 of us invade his kitchen and feed his paying customers, so we’d better be good.

All the ingredients for the evening will be donated by producers and transformed into a 4 course spring time menu. We’re still ironing out the details but you can expect a welcome cocktail and nibbles, a sexy spring terrine, braised hogget and sides, cheese, a naughty, fruity pud and a warm fuzzy feeling inside. That’s a whole lot of fun for forty of your English pounds.

The event will take place at 7pm on Wednesday 20th April and you can BUY TICKETS HERE (£3 booking fee, soz – we did try to get it waived). Money from sales will go to Action Against Hunger. Do your bit for charity this year by stuffing your face!
