The annual Who’s Cooking Dinner? event, which has been held for over a decade since it was founded by New Zealand-born chef Peter Gordon, saw chefs prepare a meal for 200 diners, who then bid for the professionals to cook dinner in their home.
Each chef created a four-course menu for one table of ten before the auction. Also cooking on the night were Mark Hix, Chris and Jeff Galvin, Pierre Koffmann and Marcus Wareing. Rainer Becker of Zuma was auctioned off for the highest bid of the night of £26k.
So far the event has raised over £4m for Leuka who help leukaemia patients in the UK and abroad. Chris Corbin, restaurateur and Chairman of Who’s Cooking Dinner?, said: “We’re so lucky to have such an amazing family of chefs and restaurateurs supporting this event.”
In addition to the chefs, restaurateurs and Front of House staff were also involved, including Russell Norman and Robert Holland.
