Bake for Beirut

Arabica and Clerkenwell Boy host a very special bake sale at Borough Market to raise funds for Beirut

The team at Borough Market’s Arabica—a venture with strong ties to Lebanon—have joined forces with author and Instagram star Clerkenwell Boy to host a special charity event for the people of Beirut. All the proceeds from the event will be donated to two organisations supporting those affected by the devasting explosion which rocked the city on 4th August: Impact Lebanon and the Lebanese Red Cross.

Bake for Beirut will see a host of pastry chefs, bakers and Market traders come together for a very special bake sale in the Market Hall on Saturday 17th October, from 11am–2pm. Arabica will be joined by Borough Market restaurants Bao and Flor and a stellar cast of guests, including:

— Big Jo Bakery (by Jolene)
— Spring Restaurant (Skye Gyngell),
— Jacob the Angel by Palomar and Barbary
— Bafarat Cafe
— The Good Egg
— Honey & Co
— Happy Endings
— Edd Kimber (The Boy Who Bakes) and Ruby Bhogal former winners of the "Great British Bake Off" 

A cookbook auction and online raffle will raise further funds, with prizes including a pizza oven, a Mons Cheese hamper and gift vouchers from top London restaurants. You can enter here.
