Gordon Ramsay and Sat Bains are among the final line-up of guests chefs set to join New York chef Dan Barber at his upcoming food waste pop-up at Selfridges.

Barber, who is part of the team behind New York’s Blue Hill restaurant group, will begin a residencey on Selfridges’ rooftop​ from 24 February for the month-long WastED event.

The menu will see ‘ignored’ ingredients such as cabbage cores and cover crop sprouts used to recreate classic British dishes for lunch and dinner.

All dishes will be priced at £15, while WastED’s take on afternoon tea will start from £32.

Some of the UK’s biggest chefs will provide daily specials, and there will also be cocktails from Iain Griffiths, formerly of cocktail bar Mr Lyan.

The original WastED ran as a pop-up in New York two years ago, and featured guest chefs including Mario Batali, Dominique Ansel and Grant Achatz.

“We didn’t want to just transplant WastED; we wanted to completely reimagine it,” says Barber.

“Coming to London has meant discovering new partners, but also tapping into a fully evolved movement — a conversation around food waste spearheaded by chefs, advocates and industry leaders, and supported by vital culinary traditions.”

Blue Hill at Stone Barns was voted 48th​ in the World’s 50 Best Restaurants 2016.

  • Jason Atherton
