Anew pop up supper club where dishes made with surplus food were matched with Sheffield beer has been hailed a success.

The Real Junk Food Project joined forces with Sentinel Brewhouse, a brewery, bar and restaurant, for the four course meal.

Guests ate spiced apple and parsnip soup with Sentinel

SG beer bread, Heeley tomato and chutney tart, chocolate malt crusted lamb, beer can chicken and barley wine carrot cake teamed with pineapple ice-cream- all created by Brez Barwise, Sentinel’s head chef and a volunteer at the waste food initiative.

The food was expertly paired with a different beer for each dish by Sentinel’s head brewer Alex Barlow.

Jo Hercberg, director of The Real Junk Food Project Sheffield, said: “Over 15 million tonnes of food are wasted each year in the UK alone.

“We are dedicated to getting this food into people’s bellies, not bins.

“The collaboration with Sentinel has been brilliant and it was such a pleasure to see our food enjoyed in such wonderful surroundings.

“The success of the event shows that Sheffield is behind us in wanting to reduce food waste and we’re already looking forwards to the next event.”

Tickets are available now for the second pop up supper club, which will be held from 7pm until 10pm on Monday November 7.

Visit to search for tickets, which cost £5 each to cover the cost of four beer tasters.

Guests can pay as they feel on the night for the food.

Discounted drinks will also be available.
