Putney Restaurateur Creates Pop Up Restaurants for Haiti
The Phoenix will host dates with top chefs and restaurants appearing
Rebecca Mascarenhas the owner of Putney's The Phoenix, Barnes' Sonny's and Kitchen W8 in Kensington has had the brain wave of creating one day pop up restaurants in the Phoenix which is currently closed for refurbishment.
Tv Chef Rick Stein has today agreed to get involved with his ex manager Sam Harrison who has restaurant in Chiswick & Balham. Other chefs to sign up include Helena Puolakka from Skylon, Michelin-starred chef Philip Howard, and Rowley Leigh of Le Cafe Anglais.
Rebecca told PutneySW15.com that," Action Against Hunger does great charity work and is closely involved with the restaurant business. I have been amazed by the fabulous response from my contacts !"
The plan is for the events to cost nothing to run with everyone donating their time and or raw materials - with some of the restaurants located out of London, local restaurants are donating their staff for free! For example the staff from Balham's 'Harrisons Restaurant & Bar' will be supporting Rick Stein on his date.
