Last night, five Michelin-starred chefs, with no less than 10 Michelin stars among them, descended on South Downs College to cook a gourmet dinner and raise money for The Ark Foundation.
Heston Blumenthal, Marcus Wareing, John Campbell, Angela Hartnett and Phil Howard gave up their time to raise money for the arm of Hospitality Action which focuses on drink and drug abuse awareness. Working alongside the students and lecturers of South Downs College, the chefs managed to raise just under £20,000 for the charity.
But while many will benefit from the work of The Ark, they weren’t the only winners for last night presented those college students – front and back of house – to not only rub shoulders with the Michelin elite, but also learn under the fine tutelage of Skylon GM Simon King and the Boundary’s house manager, Olubunmi Okolosi.
