Star of BBC 2’s MasterChef: The Professionals, Roux has created a menu at a special event taking place at his second London restaurant. Tickets are priced at £100 each, with all proceeds going to Hosptality Action.

“Hospitality employees will be stretched over the coming months as they work harder and longer hours to ensure their guests enjoy the festive season,” said Roux. “Both my father and uncle are Patrons of Hospitality Action and I am thrilled to continue the tradition of supporting the charity’s essential work.”

Penny Moore, chief executive, of Hospitality Action, added: “We are incredibly excited about joining Michel and his team this Christmas. The festive season can be an especially difficult time of year for those we support and the funds raised will help make the season a little more bearable for those in crisis within our industry.”

The dinner will take place on Monday 28 November. To book or for more information contact Giulana Vittiglio on 020 3004 5504 or at gvittiglio@hospitalityaction.org.uk .
