The Grand Brighton has announced it will be hosting the first Brighton Chefs’ Table, bringing together seven of the city’s leading chefs in support of Brighton-based charity Rockinghorse.
Taking place on Thursday 19 October chefs Alan White of GB1; Steven Edwards from etch; Michael Bremner of 64 Degrees; Alun Sperring from Chilli Pickle; Dan Kenny of the Set; Andy Vitez from Drakes; and a chef (yet to be confirmed) from the Hotel Du Vin Bistro will come together to cook for two tables- chosen at random by the Grand Brighton’s general manager, Andrew Mosley.
Mosley said: “We champion supporting our local community and it’s always humbling to see the city come together for such a great cause. Brighton’s food scene is vibrant, creative and diverse, so we are excited to bring together some of the best culinary talent we have to offer, for an evening that promises to tantalise taste buds and deliver a dining experience to remember.”
Bremner added: “Being a local charity, Rockinghorse is something we’re really happy to get behind and we’ve always been keen to help out when we can. Earlier this year Carla and I were invited along to the hospital and it’s incredible to see the work the guys do there. I’m really looking forward to the Chefs’ Table event too, it should be an amazing night.”
As the official fundraising arm of the Royal Alexandra Children’s Hospital, Rockinghorse is celebrating its 50th anniversary year, and all proceeds made from the evening will go towards improving the quality of life for the most vulnerable children in Sussex.
Analiese Doctrove, Head of Fundraising at Rockinghorse, adds: “As we are currently celebrating our 50th anniversary we continue to be overwhelmed by the support of the local community in helping us to raise £500,000 for our appeal Sussex giving for Sussex Children. We are delighted to be the Grand Brighton’s chosen charity to benefit from this wonderful event, and of course extend our thanks to the key restaurants from the city that will be there on the night.”
