On Friday 26 April, Deepa Nair host and chef of The Gutsy Chutney supperclubs will host a special pop up celebrating Indian Tapas in aid of Hygiene Bank - a charity helping tackle hygiene poverty throughout the UK.
The event will be held in a lovely church community café in Wandsworth and will celebrate the best of Indian Tapas.
The Gutsy Chutney is a successful supper club hosted by Deepa Nair, throughout the year at numerous locations across south-west London. Hosted by the lovely Deepa, the events were born as an attempt to do justice to the ‘phenomenal culinary variety that exists in India’. Deepa aims to promote these delicious home favourites suited to a modern palette, whilst retaining it’s authentic taste.
"My supperclub to raise funds for the Kerala floods in September last year under the #cookforkerala campaign was a very humbling and fulfilling experience, being able to make a difference whilst doing something that I love. So I decided to focus more on charitable causes, local and international. Guests can still expect a 5-6 course meal of delicious regional Indian food served as small plates, and enjoy it knowing they are contributing to a noble cause!"
The event will help raise vital funds for UK based charity Hygiene Bank whose mission is to eradicate hygiene poverty in the UK by giving hygiene & personal care essentials to those living in poverty and helping restore dignity and wellbeing. Hygiene is about physical and mental wellbeing, self-confidence and dignity and a lack of access to hygiene products can cause trauma and anxiety in those who are vulnerable. With hygiene poverty comes a social stigma that affects all areas of life; work, school and relationships, and The Hygiene Bank aims to tackle that stigma.
Tickets for the event cost £25 and can be purchased here: The Gutsy Chutney SupperClub
