Leading chef Tristan Welch will swap the state-of-the-art kitchen at his London restaurant Launceston Place for a pop-up charity restaurant at Taste of Edinburgh, with all proceeds going to Action Against Hunger.
Throughout the event, which takes place from 28-30 May, Tristan will run the pop-up restaurant serving locals a taster menu which reflects his unique culinary style. Visitors can sample some of Launceston Place's classic dishes using a host of fresh Scottish ingredients, including Scottish lobster soup with wild herb mousse, roasted beef fillet with black truffles, and salt-baked chocolate.
Tristan will also join culinary champions including Rachel Allen, Aldo Zilli and Alan Murchison on stage at the Taste Theatre, giving visitors a chance to see his culinary skills live in action.
Tristan said: "It's a privilege to be cooking for Action Against Hunger at the Taste of Edinburgh festival this year. People travel from across the UK to our restaurant in London, but it's exciting to be able to take my restaurant to food lovers in Edinburgh. I have developed a three-course taster menu showcasing my signature dishes, so I hope that the festival visitors have an appetite to join me supporting the very worthy Action Against Hunger."
Jean-Michel Grand, executive director for Action Against Hunger added: "We're thrilled to have been chosen as the benefiting charity at Taste of Edinburgh. The pop-up restaurant will provide a great opportunity to indulge in Tristan Welch's delicacies while helping make a difference in the international fight against child hunger. We urge all food lovers to come down to Taste of Edinburgh and visit Tristan's stand."
