From fine dining to fancy spring rolls – some of the more sought after places to eat in Leeds are coming together to raise funds for those that can’t experience the luxury of being wined and dined.

For the first time Leeds will host Action Against Hunger’s Moveable Feast.

Guests will attend a drinks reception before rotating between four restaurants, enjoying a unique course at each one, which has been designed especially for the event being held on March 14.

All funds raised from the ticket prices will go directly to support the work of the global organisation that is working around the world.

To begin the evening, Below Stairs will serve cocktails encompassing sweet, sour, umami and salt tastes to prepare the palate ahead of the four-course menu.

Elizabeth Cottam and Mark Owen will welcome guests to HOME, renowned for informal fine dining and championing familiar British flavours with local produce.

Over at Crafthouse, guests will be seated at the chef’s counter getting a glimpse into the inner workings of the kitchen before heading across the city to Iberica’s grand private dining room where diners will tuck into authentic Spanish tapas.

The final feast will be at Tattu’s private marbled dining room with contemporary Chinese cuisine.

Liz Cottam, from HOME said: “We welcomed the opportunity to get involved with Action Against Hunger’s first Moveable Feast event in Leeds. We’re putting on a special menu for what is set to be a very special dining experience across the city. By choosing to buy a ticket, our diners are making a real difference to the lives of malnourished children across the world.”

There are only 60 spaces available for the supper event.
