Organised by Romy Gill, and hosted by Mina Holland of the Guardian, the event will consist of a supper, prepared by 11 of the UK’s leading female chefs, on 4 October at London’s Borough Market. It is set to be a “true showcase for local produce, female culinary talents, and the joy of sharing food,” says the organiser.
The event’s purpose, as well as creating a platform for female talent in the industry, is to raise funds for Action Against Hunger, a global humanitarian organisation committed to ending world hunger.
The event includes a fizz and canapé reception followed by a meal of eight separate sharing dishes. There will also be a bar service from Vino Beano on the night, should guests wish to purchase any additional drinks, and a raffle presented by Kate Hamilton of Suitcase Magazine.
Tickets cost £90 plus a booking fee.
“I am very happy to continue supporting Action Against Hunger, as I wanted to raise awareness of the incredible work that the charity does across the world” says Romy Gill.
“I also thought this would be a great opportunity to unite women in the industry and what can be a more exciting way of doing that than through cooking a feast together.”

Zoe Adjonyoh (owner of Zoe’s Ghana Kitchen)
Rosie Birkett (food writer, stylist and author)
Xanthe Clay (food writer)
