Dan Doherty among the line-up for Adopt A School charity dinner

Chefs including Dan Doherty, André Garrett and Denis Drame are to cook at a charity dinner for the Royal Academy of Culinary Arts' Adopt a School Trust on 16 April.

The dinner, dubbed the Take Three Schools event, will be held at London's Royal Automobile Club on Pall Mall, and will also be prepared with its executive chef Philip Corrick.

The four top chefs will cook alongside students from Bournemouth and Poole College, University College Birmingham; Westminster Kingsway College, and the University of West London.

The event will feature a Champagne reception, menu with matching wines, a raffle, an auction and entertainment. Tickets bought before 13 March cost £110 each, or £1,000 for a table of 10 (at £130 and £1,200 respectively thereafter).

It will help to fundraise for the Adopt a School initiative, which sends professional chefs into schools to teach them about food, nutrition and cookery. Each Adopt a School session delivered by a chef lecturer costs around £300 (about £10 per child), and the charity relies entirely on sponsors and fundraising. It reaches more than 20,000 children per year.

Dan Doherty is executive chef at London restaurant Duck & Waffle, André Garrett is executive chef at Berkshire's Cliveden House, and Denis Drame is head pastry chef at the Pennyhill Park hotel and spa in Surrey.
