Top chefs to take part in Action Against Hunger Auction

Some of the biggest names in British art and food will be supporting the charity Action against Hunger's annual fine wine dinner and auction on 15 November.

Michelin-starred chefs Angela Hartnett, Nathan Outlaw and Simon Rogan will create the four-course dinner at 1 Lombard Street, London.

High-profile attendees will include chef, food writer and Sunday Times columnist Gizzi Erskine, joining artist Tracy Emin. Emin will present the charity's Humanitarian Award to a member of staff whose dedicated work has inspired colleagues.

Now in its eighth year, the annual event has raised more than £1.3m towards preventing and treating children with the most deadly form of malnutrition worldwide. The dinner, restricted to 170 people, is expected to raise more than £200,000.

During the evening, Stephen Mould, head of the European Wine Department at Sotheby's, will host a live auction of fine and rare wines, including a case of Château Latour 1995.

Other prizes include a dinner party for 12 prepared in the winning bidder's home by Michelin-starred chef Giorgio Locatelli. All proceeds go towards Action Against Hunger's work worldwide.

Hotelier Robin Hutson, co-founder of the event, said: "Over a pint in the pub, [food journalist] Bill Knott and I cooked up the idea of the Fine Wine Auction and Dinner. We are thrilled that in eight years it has turned into the largest value single event for Action Against Hunger in the UK."
