Michelin-starred chef Tom Aikens and homelessness charity Only a Pavement Away have teamed up to release a recipe book, raising money to support homeless people into employment and independent living.
Tom Aikens 5 Minute Feast Cook Book builds on the Great British Menu judge’s #FiveMinuteFeast social media challenge, which raised £5,000 for the Hospitality Against Homelessness Campaign during the first lockdown.
#FiveMinuteFeast saw 200 participants – including chefs Tom Kerridge, Judy Joo and Rickard Bertinet – share their favourite quick meals on YouTube, Facebook and Twitter.
Aikens said: “Through working together for a common cause, we all showed just how much can be achieved and I hope that this spirit will continue to flourish!”
Aikens, who at 26 became the youngest British chef ever to be awarded two Michelin stars, said galvanising support for the charity was a highlight of his year.
Aikens added: “I’ve loved getting to know the whole team at Only A Pavement Away over the past 12 months, and helping to galvanise support.”
