Nathan Outlaw, Tom Kerridge, Hélène Darroze and Angela Hartnett are among the 20 chefs who will step up to the stove for this year’s Who’s Cooking Dinner? on 5 March at the Rosewood London, Holborn.

The annual event will raise funds for Leuka, a charity which aids research and treatment into leukaemia and blood cancers. Who’s Cooking Dinner? has raised more than £6m for the Leuka charity to date.

Chris Corbin, chairman of Leuka and Who’s Cooking Dinner?, said: “We’re looking forward to hosting Who’s Cooking Dinner? once again, this year in a spectacular new location at Rosewood London. With another outstanding line-up of the UK’s top chefs, it’s humbling to see such hard work and generosity in support of a life-changing charity and the amount of funds raised continues to achieve new heights each year.”

Who’s Cooking Dinner? was launched by chef Peter Gordon in 1998 when his sister was diagnosed with acute myeloid leukaemia.

Gordon said: “Who’s Cooking Dinner? is always the highlight of my calendar and it’s incredible to see so many talented chefs coming together for such an important cause. It really is a one-of-a-kind experience and it’s also wonderful for chefs to have the opportunity to support and learn from one another – a rare treat in our industry. I can’t wait to get into the kitchen and deliver another exceptional culinary experience.”

Tickets for the event cost £7,000 for a table of 10. To book, contact Camilla Trindle on 020 7487 3401.
