Chutney is delicious as a dip and side dish – and a great way of introducing vegetable portions to those who don’t eat vegetables.
Chutney also became a way for Ankit Chopra, and his family, to do something with that 50% of still-good food doomed to the landfill and their methane-rousing afterlives.
In this community cookout, expect surprises! We will be making fresh chutney, or pickle, or some other dish, from unexpected ingredients that is rescued from streetside stores at Little India one day before! The food collection is done by a small group with SG Food Rescue’s Little India Veggie Collection, before this community cookout. Engage with Ankit on his experience with incorporating social- and wonky food-stigma into social enterpreneurship, transforming culture.
Ankit is in town for a few days, and is a speaker at this weekend’s Food Justice Impacthon organised by the Lien Centre for Social Innovation. After a short stint at L’Astrance (a Parisian restaurant consistently ranked among the 50 best restaurants in the world), Ankit founded multiple food-related startups in London, Wellington (New Zealand), and Sydney, including Eat Me Chutneys. He has been making super delicious chutney and pickle from fruits and vegetables saved across the city of Sydney, as well as conducting community cooking classes. He is invited to mentor at the Startup Genesis Programme at the University of Sydney, and is social-entrepreneur-in-residence at INSEAD.
The event fee is $12. It covers the basic rental cost for use of the training space at Green Pasture Cafe, which serves vegetarian dishes with a twist (and roll). It is located in the historic Fortune Centre in the Rochor/Bugis district, well known for its vegetarian restaurants and younger restaurants well frequented in the evenings.
Any monetary or support in kind for social initiatives Foodscape Collective and SG Food Rescue will be very appreciated, and can be made on the day.
