Mr Forbes, chef director at Cafe St Honoré, said: “I am delighted to offer my support to CrossReach and take part in their week. Food is about more than just easing our body’s hunger, it’s about our emotional hunger too and it brings us together.

“For me, bread is at the heart of everything. It’s the simplest of recipes, a gift in its purest form. When you make bread or any dish, it becomes an extension of yourself, there’s emotion in what you do and what you give to people.”
