I’ve got two more prizes I really want to tell you about, especially for those in the UK and Europe. These are two special culinary experiences that have been generously offered as raffle prizes for our Menu for Hope. I’m sure they will get a whole bunch of you donating – or donating again – to our campaign to try your luck at them.
You couldn’t possibly fashion yourself a proper British foodie if you hadn’t heard of chef Stephen Harris and his cult restaurant The Sportsman. This is a cook so fanatic with great local ingredients that he not only forages, cures meat, churns butter, but even makes his own salt. For Menu for Hope, Stephen offers to cook one lucky winner of the Menu for Hope raffle (and his or her lucky guest) a special tasting menu. And to make your trek up to Seasalter even more special, he will show you around the local farms and markets where he sources his amazing ingredients.
Madrid Fusion, one of the biggest and most important avant-garde gastronomic conferences in the world, offers two tickets, combined value over 1,200 euros, with all access pass to demonstrations, subject presentations, conference booklet, and tastings at the exhibition zone. On the conference’s roster this year include Ferran Adria, Andoni Aduriz, Quique Dacosta, Jean-Frainçois Piège, the Roca brothers, and more. These tickets only cover access to the conference itself, no transport or accommodation – you’ll have to do that bit on your own!
