Top chefs raise £27,000 at Hospitality Action charity dinner

A dinner hosted by chefs Claude Bosi, Daniel Clifford, Paul Cunningham and Tom Kerridge has raised over £27,000 for charity.

Held at Park Plaza Westminster Bridge's Brasserie Joël on Monday 2 December, the event was in aid of hospitality industry charity Hospitality Action, and was attended by famous faces such as Brian Turner and John Williams.

With six Michelin stars and 14 AA Rosettes between them, Bosi, Clifford, Cunningham and Kerridge were joined by Brasserie Joël head chef Walter Ishizuka to cook a 180-cover dinner including warm pork pie with pickled onion, sage puree and mead gravy, and Australian Wagyu rump cap, braised oxtail, spinach purée and creamed potato with braising juices.

Paul Cunningham of Henne Kirkeby Kro in Denmark, said: "I was delighted to be asked to take part in this exceptional fundraising event. [We] were all keen to give something back to the industry which has treated us so well. The funds raised will mean that many hospitality workers in need this Christmas won't feel so alone and we are all very pleased to have been able to make this possible."

Chief executive of Hospitality Action Penny Moore thanked the chefs, sponsors and restaurant for their support, and added that the "stellar line-up of chefs really did us proud".

Hospitality Action is also currently accepting bids for its annual online auction, whose 27 prizes include afternoon tea for two at the Dorchester hotel, an overnight stay at the Connaught hotel, a weekend break in Berlin and smaller rewards such as an iPod shuffle and a Christmas chocolate hamper.
