Mario Mandaric is a renowned chef from Croatia who has worked in some of the world’s most famous restaurants, including Heston Blumenthal’s legendary; The Fat Duck in Bray.
He is famous for his pop up restaurants around the world, particularly for those he prepared in Thailand, South East Asia.
During his Thai adventure and having to work with incredibly simple kitchens and very limited food supplies, it occurred to him for the first time the amount of food waste he had witnessed in “first world” kitchens during his career.
Mario is now based in the UK and has conceived a concept for his next pop up restaurant.
He will prepare a seven-course Michelin Star standard dinner, using only the waste food surplus from local restaurants in the surrounding area – all with their participation, blessing and agreement.
The hope is to highlight the amount of food that we waste as a society by creating this incredible meal, but also at the same time to spotlight homelessness in our communities; with a percentage of any profit being donated to the teenage homeless charity – Centrepoint.
