Taste of Asia to launch charity dining pop-up in Cirencester tonight
By Matt Hall | 26th June 2020
Renowned chef and culinary presenter Pamela Chen will kick start a series of culinary pop-up events at Cirencester's Somewhere Else pub tonight (June 26).
Ms Chen, who is widely recognised in her field for delivering an inspiring and flavoursome journey into Asian cookery and culture has offered her services to help raise much needed funds for the Open Kitchen project that caterers and Somwhere Else neighbours, Relish, committed to last month.
More than £2000 has been raised so far by a South West catering company in a bid to provide 6,000 meals for the vulnerable.
Relish have however promised to keep on cooking for as long as the donations keep coming, so they would love to be able to exceed their target and have donated the ingredients.
"All of the sales from the Asian pop-up will be donated to Open Kitchen," said Somewhere Else manager Andy Sampson.
"I am looking forward to trying Pamela's food and it will go down well with one of our take away beers."
The take away food event will be between 5pm and 9pm. Takeaways can be pre-ordered by simply selecting a choice of dishes and drinks, confirming the time for collection and making payment by card.
Your meal will then be freshly cooked and ready for collection from Somewhere Else in Cirencester, Gloucestershire.
Organisers of the pop-up also said that all social distancing measures are in place to make the experience as safe as possible.
You can also donate by going to the project's Just Giving page https://www.justgiving.com/crowdfunding/relishcateringopenkitchensuk, and updates on how they are getting on can be found on their Facebook and Instagram posts.
