New Zealand-born chef restaurateur Peter Gordon of The Providores and Tapa Room in London's Marylebone has organised the ninth dinner in aid of leukaemia charity Leuka.
Gordon, who successfully donated his bone marrow to his sister in the early '90s, held the event at the Four Seasons hotel in Mayfair. This year, 20 chefs offered their services and each cooked a four-course dinner for 10 people who all paid £600 per person to attend. Some of the chefs then auctioned themselves off to cook in the buyer's home. Among the winning bids were £12,000 for Mark Hix at Scotts and £18,000 each for Nobu's Mark Edwards and Mark Sargeant of Gordon Ramsay at Claridges.
The highest bid was for Rainer Becker of Zuma, who went for £22,000.
