Date for pop-up Asian takeaway revealed for Cirencester
Renowned chef and culinary presenter, Pamela Chen, will kick start a series of pop-up takeaway events at one of Cirencester’s most popular bar and restaurants Somewhere Else – starting tomorrow (June 26).
Known for delivering ‘an inspiring and flavoursome journey into Asian cookery and culture’, Ms Chen has offered her services to help raise much needed funds for the Open Kitchen project.
The project is being driven by friends, neighbours of the Castle Street venue and fellow food business, Relish.
More than £2,000 has been raised so far by a South West catering company in a bid to provide 6,000 meals for the vulnerable.
Although Relish has promised to keep on cooking for as long as the donations keep coming, so they are right behind Friday’s special appearance by Ms Chen.
“All of the sales from the Asian pop-up will be donated to Open Kitchen,” said Somewhere Else manager Andy Sampson.
“I am looking forward to trying Pamela’s food and it will go down well with one of our take away beers.”
The take away food event will be between 5pm and 9pm.
The takeaway can be pre-ordered by simply selecting a choice of dishes and drinks, confirming the time for collection and making payment by card.
Your meal will then be freshly cooked and ready for collection from Somewhere Else. All social distancing measures are in place to make the experience as safe as possible.
