  • Street Smart helps restaurants and diners give the greatest gift this Christmas

    street smart campaign launches for 2019

    In the run-up to the commercial moneyfest that is Christmas, it's always nice to have something to remind us that this time of year can also be, you know, about doing something nice for others.

    So we're pleased to hear that once again StreetSmart are launching their annual fundraising campaign, working with London restaurants to raise money for vulnerable and homeless members of their local community during November and

    Dishoom and pizza pilgrims bacon naan pizza

    This year has been a big year for Dishoom's iconic bacon naan. First, they decided to supersize it, introducing the Bacon Double Naan in April. Now they've gone one further - teaming up with the chaps at Pizza PIlgrims for a special edition pizza - and it's all in aid of charity.

  • Bistrotheque hosts first Magic Brunch with Som Saa, Gunpowder, Foxlow and Three Sheets


    When it comes to good causes, then Magic Breakfast is right up there. If you haven't heard of the charity before, then the premise is simple (albeit pretty depressing that the need for it exists). They raise money to provide healthy breakfasts to children who arrive at school too hungry to learn.

    Over the years they've run a series of fun charity breakfast events, but this year they're stepping things up with the launch of the first ever Magic Brunch. This

  • Hawksmoor's Dream Team Dinner brings out the big guns for 2019


    You've got to hand it to Hawksmoor - when they say they're bringing a top brigade together for their annual Dream Team Dinner they've really nailed it this year.

    Kicking off the evening they'll have Kyseri and OKLAVA’s Head Chef Selin Kiazim, winner and star of BBC 2 series, The Great British Menu, creating a selection of canapés. Following her

  • From a personalised pork pie to a tab at the Guinea Grill Hollow Legs' charity raffle is worth a go


    Here at Hot Dinners we're all for ways to enjoy yourself that also have the rather lovely side bonus of doing good. So when blogger and cookbook author Lizzie Mabbott (aka Hollow Legs) told us about her charity raffle, stacked with top foodie prizes to be won, it seemed like something you should all know about.

    Lizzie is cycling - mad thing that she is - 500km across Kenya with ...

    Updated 7/8/18 with new date and line-up

    It's one of our favourite events in the London foodie calendar, supporting incredibly important charity work, and this year's line-up looks unmissable. Taking place in

  • Bleecker Burger plan a charity day for Hospitality Action


    Life is tough and for some folk it can be even tougher - so the work of Hospitality Action, which does brilliant work to help support and build awareness around mental health and addiction in the hospitality industry has to be applauded.

    You've got to hand it to Action Against Hunger, the folk at that charity really know how to put an interesting sounding event together. And they usually have some top restaurant partners in whatever they do. So we're not that surprised to hear about their upcoming Moveable Feasts.

    If you've ever been on one of the London Restaurant Festival's Gourmet Odysseys, this is along similar lines although you'll be walking between each restaurant - just as well, really.

  • Fred Sirieix heads all-star chef line-up for 2018's Chocs for Chance


    Eating chocolate at any time is a pleasurable experience. But eating chocolate and doing good at the same time is way better. So we're hugely behind the return of Chocs for Chance - a charity auction co-founded by Fred Sirieix of First Dates fame (and also General Manager at Galvin at Windows restaurant).

    The idea is simple. Top chefs create some amazing boxes of chocolates. They're raffled in an online auction and the proceeds go to Galvin’s Chance, a charity
