20 of the UK’s top chefs, 15 Michelin stars between them, and one night at London’s Rosewood hotel, Holborn. Yes, Who’s Cooking Dinner? is back on 5 March with an unrivaled line-up of culinary talent. At £700 a head, snagging one of just 200 places at this annual event sure ain’t cheap – but the proceeds are in aid of Leuka, a charity that helps raise vital funds for research into the causes and treatment of leukaemia and blood cancer. A very worthy cause indeed. The charity is chaired by that complete gentleman and accomplished restaurateur Chris Corbin.
And where else will you find Tom Kerridge, Angela Hartnett, Brett Graham, Giorgio Locatelli, HeÌleÌ€ne Darroze and more cooking side-by-side in the same kitchen?
2018’s full line-up includes: Adam Byatt (Trinity*), Angela Hartnett (Murano*), Ashley Palmer-Watts (Dinner by Heston Blumenthal**), Bjoern Weissgerber (Sexy Fish), Brett Graham (The Ledbury**), Dan Doherty (Duck & Waffle), Francesco Mazzei (Sartoria), Giorgio Locatelli (Locanda Locatelli*), Hamish Brown (Roka), HeÌleÌ€ne Darroze (HeÌleÌ€ne Darroze at The Connaught**), Hideki Hiwatashi (Sake no Hana), JoseÌ Pizarro (Pizarro), Larry Jayasekara (PeÌtrus*), Mark Hix (HIX), Nathan Outlaw (Restaurant Nathan Outlaw**), Peter Gordon (The Providores), Simon Rogan (Roganic), Tim Hughes (Scott’s) Tom Kerridge (The Hand and Flowers**) Tong Chee Hwee (Hakkasan*). Collectively, the chefs hold 15 Michelin stars between them.
A concept dreamed up by chef Peter Gordon in 1998, ‘Who’s Cooking Dinner?’ is one of the city’s most celebrated dining occasions. Upon arrival, guests are assigned a table by random draw, which also reveals the chef who will cook for each coveted table. The chefs will work to produce an exclusive array of dishes alongside paired wines matched by each restaurant’s sommelier. Following dinner, guests are invited to participate in an auction, where they can bid generously for the exclusive experience of having the chefs cook in their own home.
Tickets for the event cost £7,000 for a table of ten. To book, contact Camilla Trindle on 020 7487 3401.
