Win mince pies baked by Hampshire’s leading chefs this Christmas and raise funds for FoodCycle and Kids Company, with The Mince Pie Project.

The nationwide project returns for its third year and brings with it a new and exciting line-up of top chefs, who will each 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.

Having previously attracted some of the world’s most formidable culinary talent, the calibre of chefs for this year’s project is set to be the best yet.

The likes of Michel Roux Jr, Tom Aikens, Angela Hartnett, Clare Smyth and Raymond Blanc are already confirmed, and 100 are set to be involved.

Chefs participating from Hampshire include:

•Skye Gyngell from Heckfield Place (due to open in 2014), Heckfield (RG27 0LD) with her recipe: Shipton Mill Organic light rye & white flour pasty, mincemeat flavoured with Cedro and candied bergamot

This project ends at noon on Friday December 13. For updates, visit or follow @mincepieproject on Twitter.
