Blog. Winter Chef's Dinner
November 7, 2023 | Author: Sophie Stevens
Last night, Monday 6th November, some of London’s finest award-winning chefs cooked up a gastronomical feast at our exceptional fundraising dinner at Nobu Hotel London Portman Square and raised an incredible £85,000 in the process.
Our Master of Ceremonies was the one and only Peter Hancock, who provided top class hosting in the outstanding ballroom of Nobu Hotel. The drinks and canapé reception was kindly sponsored by Ridgeview Wine Estate, Berry Bros & Rudd and Stella Artois, as well as Classic Fine Foods and Reach Food Group.
We were delighted to serve two menus on the night, cooked by our talented guest chefs. Heartfelt thanks to the talented guest chefs for one of our menus:
Claire Clark MBE, of Claire Clark Consultancy for finishing the incredible meal with an outstanding dessert of Amedei No. 9, Oloroso Jerez Xere Sherry apricots, pistachios, kindly sponsored by Amedei and Strawberry Red
And heartfelt thanks to the talented guest chefs of our second menu:
Huge thanks to event sponsors Icelandic Glacial and Ridgeview. To Ellis Wines, Mentzendorff and AB InBev for providing beverages for our guests to enjoy during their glorious meal. The Nobu Hotel team including GM Grant Campbell, the chefs and the Events, Conference and Banqueting teams for going above and beyond in creating the most spectacular dining experience.
Finally, many thanks to all our guests who participated in the evening’s fundraising. Every penny that was raised will be spent wisely helping to transform thousands of hospitality households facing extreme food and fuel poverty and poor mental health, associated with the cost-of-living crisis.
