It's the time of year when we start to hear about all the exciting recipe books that are coming out in time for Christmas. But one in particular, From Beder's Kitchen, stands out so far.
It's a charity cookbook which has gathered together what sounds like a superb collection of recipes from people in the food world. Those who've taken part include a veritable who's who of restaurant folk like Gordon
Great food can be an enormous source of comfort, and the author of a new cookbook hopes not only to provide the people who buy it with great dishes to cook, but also raise funds for those in need.
Community Comfort, is the brainchild of Caribbean food expert and activist Riaz Phillips. He's roped in the services of an incredibly impressive group of friends - all People of Colour - in the food world to provide recipes for the book. The aim is
This is a good idea which, in turn, actually does good. During normal times, the charity StreetSmart would be raising funds for the homeless through donations added to the bill in restaurants. But while restaurants remain shut, they've had to diversify.
The plan they've come up with is to get some of London's top chefs to create online recipe books - the sale of which will raise funds to help the homeless and
Well, now - aren't these pretty? These gloriously rainbow coloured potstickers are a dish to order that'll not only brighten your day but start someone else's off well too.
Yauatcha have brought them in for the month of June and, for every box purchase, they'll donate a whole month of breakfasts for a child via the charity Magic Breakfast.

Many restaurants across London are keen to help raise money to support those affected by the catastrophic Australian fires, from wildlife charities to disaster relief. Instagrammers Felicity Spector and Clerkenwell Boy have been hard at work collating a list of the events and efforts for Hot Dinners.
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
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.
The Dishoom Bacon and Egg Naan Pizza sounds like

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.
The five course feast in aid of Action Against Hunger has just announced its line-up for 2019 and it sounds unmissable.
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
Here at Hot Dinners we're all for ways to enjoy yourself that also have the rather lovely side bonus of doing good.

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