Celebrity chef and food writer Anjum Anand is partnering with eye research charity Fight for Sight for a second year running.

The television chef is supporting the charity’s Feast your eyes fundraising initiative, which runs throughout this month and encourages people to challenge their senses by hosting a dinner party in the dark.

Ms Anand has shared two easy to follow recipes for people to create who want to host their own dine in the dark party in aid of the initiative. These include a Lamb dopiaza and pistachio cakes with orange syrup. 

Ms Anand commented: "I’m delighted to offer my support to Fight for Sight. As a chef, your sight is essential because it's all about the attention to detail. Eye research is important in helping create a future everyone can see. I encourage people to join the fight against sight loss and sign up to Feast your eyes and tickle their taste buds by following my recipe.”

Interim director of fundraising at Fight for Sight, Sharon Petrie, said: “Feast your eyes is a fun activity that people can do with friends, family or work colleagues while raising awareness of the importance of eye research and the need for more funding, so that Fight for Sight is able to continue to fund pioneering eye research.”

Ms Petrie emphasised that 100 people in the UK start to lose their sight daily and nearly two million people are living with sight loss. She added that Fight for Sight funds research into a number of different eye conditions and aims to help make sight loss a thing of the past.
