A group of the industry’s top chefs will be cooking for guests of the charity Keech Hospice Care to celebrate its 21st anniversary and raise funds. All the chefs are giving their time for free and are hoping to raise £25,000 for Keech.
The gourmet event takes place on Thursday, October 18, at the recently extended Hospitality & Tourism Department at Barnfield College New Bedford Road in Luton.
Led by Andrew Bennett, executive chef from the Sheraton Park Lane hotel, the chefs include his head pastry chef Sarah Hartnett, Henry Brosi from The Dorchester, Paul Gayler from The Lanesborough and Kevin Clark from Luton Hoo Hotel, who will be responsible for creating one of the courses, assisted by students and staff from the college.
To kick off the event, canapés created by Vince O’Toole and Steve Latimer from Spencer House London will be served with champagne.
There will also be the opportunity to bid on some amazing auction and table prizes that include weekend breaks in Barcelona, Venice, Krakow and Dublin and spa breaks and dinners in top UK hotels and restaurants all donated in support of this event.
Monty Panesar, England’s top spin-bowler and Keech ambassador, said: “This is fine dining for a good cause at a fraction of the price you’d pay in a top London restaurant.”
