Hospitality Action Dinner at Brasserie Joel, Westminster

Last week I was invited to attend the stunning Hospitality Action Dinner at Brasserie Joel. Held at the striking Park Plaza hotel at Westminster Bridge, this fundraising dinner raised funds in aid of industry charity Hospitality Action and featured dishes from Walter Ishizuka, Nathan Outlaw, Simon Hailstone and Eric Lanlard. It was a stunning evening and I have been dying to share the event with you.

Curry For Change: The Recipe Video

I am absolutely delighted to finally share my Curry For Change video recipe with you all! Earlier this year I took part in the Natco Foods and Find Your Feet challenge to come up with a Curry For Change recipe that you could all make at home! After winning the competition and having my recipe filmed in a professional kitchen, I am over-the-moon to share the experience with you! Read on to learn more about Curry For Change and how to get involved.

Honey & Co at Proms at St Jude's

This weekend I will be attending the Proms at St Jude's festival in North London to not just raise funds for the North London Hospice, but to meet and eat with Honey & Co! Honey & Co has quickly established itself as one of London's favourite dining destinations, not to mention their adorable website, and won the Best Newcomer award in the Observer Food Monthly awards, 2013. Owners Itamar Srulovich and Sarit Packet will be in talks with Financial Time's restaurant critic, Nicholas Lander at 12:30 on Sunday at the event to discuss all things Middle Eastern.
With vibrant flavours, stunning colours and beautifully put together dishes, it's no wonder that Honey & Co have their first book coming in June. Titled Honey & Co - Food from the Middle East, the book features a collection of their best recipes and has as much comfort, warmth and imagination as the small restaurant itself.

To meet, eat and chat with Honey & Co, plus all the other guests at the Proms at St Jude's festival head on down to the Hampstead Garden Surburb, London NW11 on Sunday 22 June. Tickets can be purchased here and raised funds go to the North London Hospice.

Curry For Change: It's #CurryForChange Month!

Last week I helped promote the fantastic work that Action Aid are doing to support women across the world, and this week I present Curry For Change: an amazing charity that is changing the lives of families who suffer from hunger. Back in May I created a delicious roast lamb dish (which you can read here) for the campaign and together we have made a video to guide you through the recipe. Check that out later this month. Supported by incredible chefs here in Britain and across the world, the Curry For Change campaign is a great way to help people in need by making, well, curry! If you fancy a night out rather than a night in, then head to one of the 10 restaurants here in London who are supporting the campaign this month.

Live Below The Line: Rina's Story

When I was asked by Action Aid back in March to take part in this year's Live Below the Line, I was hesitant to say the least. I eat an incredibly varied and mostly healthy diet, so the idea of living off just £1 a day for all my food and drink was not only daunting, but really quite terrifying. That was until I learned the stories of the women that Action Aid's #SheCAN campaign supports. Women's issues and gender equality is a topic very close to my heart, so anything that helps to promote that is, for me, a very worthy cause. This is Rina's story; a mother of five children who once couldn't afford to put food on the table and is now a business owner helping other women in her area.

Race for Life Challenge, 2014

You may have seen in the side bar on July the 19th, 2014, I will participating in the Race for Life challenge to raise essential funds for Cancer Research.

In some point in every one of our lives, cancer will effect us. Whether it's a family member, friend, colleague, neighbour someone you pass in the street, cancer knows no boundaries. It has come into my life twice and is heart breaking every single time. Watching someone you love go through this horrible disease is hell on Earth. Please help me raise money to get rid of cancer forever. 

Help to battle cancer and save even more lives by donating on my Just Giving page here: http://www.justgiving.com/elliemathews

Every penny really does help to save lives and find the cure. Thank you so much.
