Forgive us for mentioning Christmas so early for once. The food waste charity FoodCycle and the eco-conscious chef behind the pop-up events of Forgotten Feast (Tom Hunt) are putting on an alternative Christmas feast. Held in the Brunel Museum in Rotherhithe, the event is inspired by an Italian Christmas eve tradition in which seven fish are eaten to representing the seven sacraments. An Alternative Christmas, which takes place between the December 5-9, will feature more unusual varieties of fish such as dab, gurnard, and the scourge of British rivers – red signal crayfish. They will of course be cooking with surplus food. Before the meal, diners also have the chance to tour the Brunel Thames Tunnel. Tickets are on sale now at £35. Profit from the event will go to FoodCycle and more awareness raising events by Forgotten Feast.
