The four-course meal at the Brasserie Joel restaurant was supported by in-house executive chef Walter Ishizuka, and featured the well-known 'meat fruit' starter from Palmer-Watts' two-Michelin-starred restaurant Dinner by Heston Blumenthal, as well as a fruit raviole dessert with kaffir lime and coconut jus, by two-Michelin-starred Blanc.
Tickets for the event cost £135 per person, or £1,300 for a table of ten.
The annual dinner always includes high-profile chefs. Of course, Blanc is best-known for his Belmond Le Manoir Aux Quat'Saisons in Oxfordshire; Palmer-Watts for Dinner; and Loubet for his Grain Store site in London's King's Cross.
Penny Moore, chief executive of Hospitality Action, said: “We are so very grateful to each of our chefs for taking part in this very special dinner in our honour. Over £15,000 was raised, which is truly phenomenal, and will enable us to support even more people in need over the festive season.”
Hospitality Action is also still running its annual Christmas online auction via its website, until 2pm on 9 December, including prizes such as a three-course lunch at the River Cafe in London, and an overnight stay at the Hoxton hotel in Amsterdam.
The industry charity seeks to support hospitality workers past and present who have fallen on hard times, either with financial support or emotional help.
