Six of the world's top female chefs team up for Girls Night Out

Six of the world's most celebrated female chefs are coming together for a three-night special event next month during which they will cook together at London's 1 Lombard Street restaurant.

Girls Night Out will take place from 11 to 13 March as a unique one-off collaboration seeing three pairings of top British and international female chefs.

They will present a five-course dinner, accompanied by different wines (all made by women), in a celebration of women's achievements in the world of fine dining, in partnership with American Express.

The brainchild of the UK's Michelin-starred Angela Hartnett (pictured) of Murano and food and wine writer Fiona Sims, the event will launch on 11 March with former Catey Chef Award winner Hartnett paired up with New York chef Gabrielle Hamilton of Prune restaurant.

This will be followed on 12 March by Brazil's number one female chef, Helena Rizzo of Mani in Sao Paolo, who will cook alongside Clare Smyth, head chef at the three-Michelin-starred Restaurant Gordon Ramsay in Chelsea. Finally on 13 March, Margot Janse of Le Quartier Français in Franschhoek, South Africa, will cook alongside London's Anna Hansen of the Modern Pantry.

Tickets to the dinners cost £200 but Caterer and Hotelkeeper readers are entitled to a £50 discount. To book, contact Elena Leva on 020 7929 9511 or quoting "Caterer and Hotelkeeper reader offer".
