Tackle Food Waste With Selfridges’ Pop-Up

Selfridges will soon play host to an exciting pop-up restaurant with an unusual twist. No ordinary dining experience, the temporary pop-up, named wastED, is a project launched by state-side chef Dan Barber – and will feature delicious dishes conjured from only leftover food waste.


Taking place from February 24 until early April, a number of celebrity chefs are set to cook alongside Dan on different days – including Gordon Ramsay, Tom Kerridge and Clare Smyth.  There’s just one small catch for guests – attendees won’t know prior to arriving at the London shopping landmark who’ll be serving on the day they book.


Taking place to help raise awareness of food waste (the UK wasted 7.3 million tonnes of food in 2016 alone) guests can expect a menu filled with unusual delights. From a selection of sharing dishes and even afternoon tea, visit the pop-up to try a range of quirky options – made with equally interesting ingredients.

Dan’s previous New York version made use of 600 lbs of ugly veg, 475 lbs of skate cartilage, 350 lbs of vegetable pulp and 900 lbs of waste-fed pigs – meaning UK guests are in store for anything but a ‘waste’ of time.
