Michelin-starred chef Tom Aikens and the Typing Room's Lee Westcott are to host a one-off collaborative dinner at Tom's Kitchen in London's Chelsea on 2 February.
The dinner marks the first of a series of other guest chef and suppliers dinners planned for Tom's Kitchen over the next year.
The five-course tasting menu will be in a modern European style, combining the chefs' varied influences and creativity. Costing £80pp, the dinner will serve 22 people and begin at 7pm, with a matching wine flight included in the price.

The menu will feature scallops with fermented grains and lardo; foie gras mousse with ham hock jelly and lentils; smoked and braised beef cheek with baked beets and beet mash; sea trout with kohlrabi, sprouting broccoli and pear; and a dessert of chocolate and blood orange.
Westcott, who opened the Typing Room in Bethnal Green in May 2014 backed by Michelin-starred chef Jason Atherton, previously worked with Tom Aikens at his eponymous two-Michelin-starred restaurant and also worked abroad at the Atherton sites 22 Ships and Ham & Sherry in Hong Kong.
He also had roles at the three-Michelin-starred Per Se in New York, with Rene Redzepi at the two-Michelin-starred Noma in Copenhagen, and with Gordon Ramsay at his Claridge's hotel site.
