To celebrate Abergavenny’s 20th Food Festival, Belazu Ingredient Company is hosting a charity dinner on Friday 14th September in the town’s castle grounds to raise money in aid of Unicef UK and the #CookForSyria campaign.


Diners will be treated to a four-course meal cooked by guest chefs including Yotam Ottolenghi’s group development chef, Calvin von Niebel; The Modern Pantry’s chef and owner, Anna Hansen; Elly Curshen, author and founding owner of The Pear Cafe in Bristol; pastry chef, author and cookery teacher Henrietta Inman and Belazu’s resident innovation chef and former head chef at Moro, Henry Russell.

The Middle Eastern-themed menu will feature a range of Belazu’s ingredients and guests will have the chance to pay what they think the dinner is worth from a starting price of £40 for the first sitting and £60 for the second, including drinks. Belazu’s registered charity, the Belazu Foundation has a fundraising goal of £10,000 for #CookForSyria and has pledged to double the amount raised by the evening’s guests.

The Belazu Foundation has been raising funds for food-related, educational projects that help disadvantaged individuals at home and abroad since 2003. The #CookForSyria campaign is a global fundraising initiative curated by Clerkenwell Boy and SUITCASE Magazine in partnership with Unicef Next Generation London, a community group that works in aid of Unicef UK.

#CookForSyria’s latest cookery book #BakeForSyria launched in June and Belazu will be selling copies throughout the Festival. All proceeds from #CookForSyria benefit Unicef UK’s appeal for the children of Syria via Unicef NEXTGen London.
