BRAVO award winners for
It used to be the case that diners had to choose between sustainable restaurants and top quality food. But no longer! Fabulous food, genuine sustainability and cutting-edge innovation now go hand in hand. And the winner of the BRAVO for Sustainable Eats goes to – The Real Junk Food Project. Huge congratulations to the team.
It seems absolutely right that The Real Junk Food Project should nab the top spot for Sustainable Eats. They exist to be sustainable, intercepting food waste destined for landfill and turning it into delicious dishes. Food is bought on a ‘pay as you feel’ basis, encouraging people to think more about the value of food and meaning that everyone, whatever their budget, can be fed well. Brighton is rightly proud that The Real Junk Food Project, thriving in our city, forms part of an international movement to combat food waste. A worthy winner!
Small but perfect Casazul, in Brighton’s Open Market, serves authentic, homemade Mexican food to a loyal Brighton fan-base. Owner Gabriel Gutierrez educated himself, and his team, about what is possible for a business like Casazul and now sustainability is at the heart of everything they do. The restaurant uses local, ethically produced ingredients, natural preservation techniques and has a zero food waste ethos. In addition, Casazul offers takeaway in reusable and returnable containers. No doubt this one of the things that earnt Casazul #1 in the BRAVOs Good-to-Go category! These guys have thought of everything so you don’t have to.
Oeuf Cafe in Hove makes the top three of our Sustainable Eats category for the second year running. Partnering with local suppliers, their unmissable menu is created using the best, most ethical produce they can get their hands on. From the free-range, rare-breed eggs to the fair trade, low carbon roasted coffee beans, sustainability is baked in at Oeuf. And since they’re good from the ground up, it come as no great surprise that Oeuf Cafe has also won 1# Best Cafe and 2# Best Brunch. What a ‘good egg’!
