Britain Tastes Great – now running

Britain Tastes Great – now running

As the world looks at London this summer, HOPE not Hate encourages us to celebrate modern Britain – a kaleidoscope of colours and cultures.  Get together with your neighbours, schools, places of worship, community organisations and plan a delicious meal.  Britain Tastes Great is looking for dishes that define modern Britain – add your own!

For the really adventurous, people can host their own event. This can be a house party, a picnic in the park or in the local community centre. We’ll be encouraging churches, mosques, temples and local sports centres to open their doors to the local community and share food.

The new website is now up – lots of recipes, map of event and much more – Britain Tastes Great.
