Stoke Park Country Club head chef and Great British Menu contender Chris Wheeler is creating a one-night pop-up restaurant at East Berkshire College to give students a flavour of high-end service and to raise money for charity.

The event, on 16 June, will give catering and hospitality students from Langley College the opportunity to recreate the fine-dining experience of Stoke Park's restaurant, Humphry's, at its training restaurant, Zest, under the guidance of Wheeler and food and beverage manager Tariq Mahomed.

Students will prepare and serve a selection of Wheeler's modern British dishes for a £20 three-course menu and drinks reception. Money raised will be donated to the Alexander Devine Children's Hospice.

Wheeler, who will compete in the south west round of Great British Menu, said: "I am really looking forward to spending the day with the students and bringing Humphry's to Zest for the day. I was an apprentice when I first started in the industry and I truly value the opportunities I was given."

Wheeler has been head chef at Stoke Park for 13 years and currently employees two apprentice chefs from Langley College.
