Greedy Giveaway 2 - Win Tickets worth £200 for lunch at The Modern Pantry with Anna Hansen & Frances Atkins

Another day, another great giveaway. And I'm already going to this one, so it may even appeal to stalkers...

Amex have passed on to me 2 tickets (worth £100 each!) to give away for a 3 course meal at The Modern Pantry with Frances Atkins for this Sunday, 10 October 2010. Full details of the event are set out below and on the London Restaurant Festival website.

The essentials are as follows. To create your big Sunday lunch, head chef of The Modern Pantry in Farringdon, Anna Hansen (formerly of The Providores, and the kitchens of Fergus Henderson and Stephanie Alexander) has teamed up with Frances Atkins (one of only 6 female Michelin Star chefs in the UK) from The Yorke Arms of Yorkshire (a Michelin Star restaurant since 2003 which was the winner of UK Restaurant of the Year 2007/08). The Modern Pantry has 2 AA rosettes and was listed as Bib Gourmand in the Michelin Guide in 2009. These are 2 impressive women who you want to have making your lunch.

Yes, I really like this giveaway. More details are below from Amex....

Enter before 2pm (UK time) tomorrow (Thursday 7 October 2010) to be in with a chance to win.
