jersey-logoSpread the festive cheer a little differently this year with The Mince Pie Project, a mince pie auction and raffle featuring baked delights from the UK’s leading chefs, to raise funds for two extremely worthy charities, FoodCycle and Kids Company.

Jersey’s very own Steve Smith, Head Chef of Bohemia, will be joining a line-up of 100 of the UK’s best chefs, which includes Michel Roux Jr, Lorraine Pascale, Frances Quinn, Tom Aikens and Raymond Blanc. Steve will be creating his own take on the ultimate mince pie especially for the project.

The Mince Pie Project returns for its third year, after raising an amazing £30,000 last Christmas. Each chef will create two boxes of signature mince pies of their own design. One box will be auctioned to the highest bidder; the second box will be put up for raffle, in which anyone can get involved with a £2 donation per ticket.

We all know just how competitive chefs can be and part of the fun of The Mince Pie Project will be seeing which chef’s mince pies can raise the most money and come top of the leaderboard. Last year, Dan Doherty took the crown, raising a staggering £1,900 for his box of gingerbread-flavoured mince pies. How will Steve Smith fare against the UK’s best chefs this year?The Mince Pie Project has decided to name FoodCycle and Kids Company as its two charities, to which all proceeds from the project will go.
