Slow Food England Chef Alliance & Ark



The Chefs’ Alliance in the UK is based on the guidelines set out by the Slow Food International Foundation, making each member part of a growing global network of chefs. Membership is open to chefs working in any kitchen which serves the wider public – restaurants, pubs, schools, hospitals, event catering – who actively support the values of Slow Food, using products from the Ark of Taste, local where possible, and as appropriate to the cuisine of their kitchen.

To become a member of the Chef’s Alliance in England please contact Jason Hartley at


The ARK of TASTE for England

An ever growing list of foods which are at risk (imminent or potential) of disappearance, whether through falling out of use, or by being marginalised by industrial food production.

It is our belief that both our biodiversity and landscape benefit from us cataloguing as many products as possible.

To nominate products for inclusion within England please contact Mark Matless, Ark Co-ordinator for England at
