Competition: Win Tickets For Tim Anderson’s Event With Unearthed

If you are a foodie and an avid MasterChef follower, you would probably know how creative Tim Anderson is.  He won MasterChef in 2011 with his very inventive fusion dishes. Here he is working with unearthed® to create a dish that was inspired by a childhood snack, the marshmallow.

Unearthed finds interesting ingredients from around the world and we had great fun using their nduja in a competition and in other nduja recipes before.

the ‘Around the World on One Plate’ dish features a savoury marshmallow on a biltong twig, served with loin of lamb and dressed with a rich chocolate and port sauce.  The dish boasts an eclectic mix of unusual ingredients from countries such as Greece, Italy, Iberia, China, New Zealand, Ecuador and South Africa.

To get a chance to sample this dish, it is going to be featured in a 4 course dinner at The London Foodie’s Supper Club in Islington on 28 June. As you might know, I run the Malaysian By May supperclub with Luiz at his supperclub. Together with this dinner, you will also get a hamper of goodies from unearthed® too.
