On Monday 27th February, Action Against Hunger’s long term and passionate supporter, Sabrina Ghayour hosted the ‘Fire and Feast Collaboration Dinner’ at Yosma, a Turkish Meyhane, Mangal and Raki bar. Sabrina has been an incredible ambassador and active advocate of Action Against Hunger since 2004, and over that time has raised well over £100,000.

The evening united 9 of the UK’s best chefs to create the ultimate Eastern feast, with dishes ranging from squid-ink flatbread to Duck Köfte, and finishing with a delicious Kűnefe (sweet cheese pastry) created by the events’ co-host and executive chef at Yosma, Hus Vedat.


The line-up of chefs, each creating their own dish included:

Nieves Barragan – Barrafina

Vivek Singh – Cinnamon Club/Kitchen/Soho/Bazaar

Dan Doherty – Duck and Waffle

Selin Kiazem – Oklava

Francesco Mazzei – Sartoria

Anna Hansen MBE – The Modern Pantry

Lee Tiernan – Black Axe Mangal

Hus Vedat – Yosma Executive Chef Yosma and event co-host

Sabrina Ghayour – Chef, curator and co-host


We are delighted to announce that dinner raised over £16,000, including £3,000 from a raffle thanks to an incredible prize list from the following sponsors:

Cinnamon Kitchen, Lavazza, I.O.Shen Mastergrade Knives, Bread Ahead, Hawksmoor, Sytch Farm, Odysea, Sabrina Ghayour, Ribman, Bruno Bakes, Belazu, Honey & Co., unearthed, Cannon and Cannon, John Holland, and Felicity Spector.


We would like to say a huge thank you to the chefs, sponsors, generous guests, Yosma restaurant and of course the organisers Sabrina Ghayour and Hus Vedat.

And not forgetting that without ingredients there wouldn’t have been a dinner at all! So thank you to the following companies who generously sponsored the chef’s ingredients on the night:

We are extremely grateful to all our supporters for helping us raise important funds at a time when famine looms in four different countries.
