Local award-winning restaurateur Jun Au opens up his sensational restaurant to host a special children’s fancy dress competition, to raise funds for Edinburgh Children’s Hospital Charity – and he’s not alone!
Local award-winning artist Sarah Kwan will join him on the judges panel to choose one lucky winner and Edinburgh’s very own Peter Sawkins aka Peter Bakes, winner of GBBO 2020, will be baking some delightful goodies for sale – proceeds of which will be going to the charity. What’s even sweeter is that every participant will also walk away with a little gift, just for taking part!
The free event is being held at Au’s new Chinese eatery in the city where he creates delicious East and Southeast Asian dishes with seasonal Scottish Produce to delight his customers. All are welcome at Pomelo, 27 Sciennes Road, Edinburgh on Halloween Tuesday 31st October – the competition is open to kids up to 16 years old with the accompaniment of an adult, and the event will run between 6pm – 7pm.
“We are so excited to have Sarah and Peter support this event with us. For Pomelo, giving back to the community is really important for us. This event is a fantastic opportunity to provide kids in the area a fun activity and, at the same time, help out a charity that is very close to our hearts.”
Jun has collaborated both with Peter Bakes and Sarah Kwan Artist in the past, with Peter creating delectable mouth-watering desserts to delight and satisfy Pomelo’s sweet-toothed customers. Whilst Sarah Kwan’s ‘The Chef’s Kiss’ design took inspiration from Pomelo’s delicious hand-ripped wide noodles – and whose other designs are always available for sale from the restaurant itself.
