Hi! My name is Simon and I'm the Head Chef at The Teapot Project.
Simon Collins’ background is in street food and fine dining. He first worked with Mischa at her café in Suffolk and returned to The Teapot Project to help during the Covid-19 outbreak. Why did he return?
“We throw away roughly 20,000 tonnes of food each day and yet thousands of people every day can’t afford to eat. To put that in perspective, every day we throw enough food away to feed 10million people.
Boxes of random food force you to think on your feet. You learn weird and wonderful techniques to preserve and change the ingredients into something punchy and nutritious. For those of you out there who might benefit from this project, I want to thank you for giving me the opportunity to cook for you. I really hope you enjoy it.”
