The event takes place at the former London 2012 Olympic venue, which is located within the Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park, on 14 and 15 March. It will be the first event to take place at the velodrome since the Games.

John Stockton, managing director at The Recipe, said: "All of us are thrilled to be associated with this project. It’s great to be working in the velodrome, and rising to the challenge of being the first caterer to work in this major venue.

"Working with the team at Face Partnership is a real pleasure, as their core values seem to mirror our own. Together, The Recipe and Face make a formidable team, and I am certain we will deliver an astonishing event in this world-class venue."

Over the course of the two days and three track cycling race sessions, The Recipe has estimated it will serve more than 1,800 guests. The caterer will be providing five food stations for each race within the track centre lounge. Food stalls will be serving pie and mash as well as meat and vegetarian skewers.

The caterer is also providing VIP hospitality for the event for those with top-level tickets. They will be served a selection of canapés including rabbit rillettes; Bombay chaat, tamarind and green mango; broad bean mousse; and mirin cured salmon lollipop and yuzu tempura crisps.

VIP ticket holders will also be served a three-course meal, which they will enjoy in the track centre sitting next to the rider pits and start and finish lines.

Ed Watts, sales and events manager at The Recipe, who is managing the Revolution event, said: "The menus have had to be specifically designed to overcome the logistical issues at the velodrome, the number one issue being that the venue is constantly heated to 28 degrees Celcius, which is the optimum temperature for cyclists."
