A restaurant-style dinner with a twist: all the food we serve would otherwise have been destined for landfill. We rescue it, see the quantity and quality of food deemed ‘worthless’ and re-value it by serving amazing three-course dinners, every week at REfUSE Cafe, Chester-le-Street. Our restaurant nights are so popular and one of our best ways of raising funds for the cafe’s work in the community and in tackling food waste. Every Thursday, each evening has a different guest chef volunteering their skills, and they pick a theme for food.
Like a ‘supper club’, we have a set price of £17.50 per head. This includes a three-course meal and soft drinks or mixers (you’re welcome to bring your own wine or other alcohol). We ask for a booking fee of £5 and you pay £12.50 on the evening. All money goes towards the food waste-saving work of REfUSE.
On Thursday 8th July we have our very own Nikki cooking Thai food. Using fresh ingredients and pastes cooked from scratch, we’ll be offering things like papaya and prawn salad, tofu or chicken Thai Green curries, Pad Thai, fried rice, and mango sticky rice. We always have vegan, vegetarian and gluten free options on our menus.
How do I book?
Book through facebook and eventbrite. If you can process one booking for your whole table, that helps us hugely with planning the table layout with covid social distancing restrictions. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org if you have any dietary requirements, issues or questions with your booking. You can also book at the cafe in person during our normal opening times.
