Times are changing, and it’s time for change in the way we eat. ‘The Forgotten Feast’ is both revolutionary in it’s approach, and fundamentally simple in its principles. The people behind The Forgotten Feast believe that the 20 million tonnes of annual food wastage that exists within our society is inexcusable. This wastage can take the form of fresh fish discarded into the sea, unusual cuts of meat unused through lack of demand, and the massive fruit and vegetable wastage right down the line from grower to supplier. Simply put The Forgotten Feast is a roaming restaurant that supports the ugly, the unwanted and the unloved. It creates an unforgettable celebration of taste that centres itself on the use of wild and seasonal foods, wasted foods and foods that have been forgotten or ignored by the modern world. Above is Tom Hunt the acclaimed eco-chef and founder of the Forgotten Feast.

I shot this Valentine’s Banquet for the Forgotten Feast collaboration with Beattie Foundation and Recycle for London.
