Damian Wawrzyniak, who taught Mary Berry the art of Polish baking, is opening the doors of his new restaurant to feed homeless people.
Wawrzyniak, whose new restaurant House of Feasts, in Peterborough, opens on June 9, has pledged to open one day a week for homeless people in the surrounding areas.
The ‘food architect’ and chef consultant, who also owns and runs Fine Art of Dining restaurant, appeared on Mary Berry’s Easter Feast earlier this year on BBC Two, teaching The Great British Bake-Off’s national treasure how to make seasonal Polish speciality babka.
We are all humans and we are all the same.
But he says he was inspired to give homeless people a culinary treat because: “I was fortunate to be able to chase the dreams and work in lovely places all over the world. However many people have no luck.
“So I’ve decided to start running weekly free dinners for homeless from Peterborough and surrounding areas.”
