Raymond Blanc OBE and protégés raise over £29,000 for Hospitality Action

Celebrated Chef Raymond Blanc OBE was joined behind the stoves by some of his protégés and peers this Christmas including Benoit Blin and Gary Jones of the two Michelin-starred Belmond Le Manoir aux Quat’Saisons, Robin Gill of the award winning The Dairy and Aggi Sverrisson from the Michelin-starred Texture at a special fundraising dinner in aid of industry charity Hospitality Action. The event, which took place at Chino Latino within the Park Plaza London Riverbank, raised over £29,000.

Lending support throughout the evening was Chino Latino’s Executive Group Chef Werner Seebach. The evening comprised of a delicious four course meal including a delicious second course of applewood smoked eel, chicken skin, our farm leek and nori by Robin Gill and a delicious main course of Braised Jacob’s Ladder, alliums & celeriac, bone marrow, essence of red wine prepared by Raymond Blanc OBE and Gary Jones.

The evening was supported by Aubrey Allen, Classic Fine Foods, Devon Eel Company, Jellybean Creative Solutions, Mash, Oranka, Reynolds, Swaledale, Taittinger, Wellocks and Wenlock Spring whilst prize donors, including Condé Nast Johansens who contributed a fantastic £500 worth of gift vouchers, helped ensure the evening’s fundraising success.
