Who’s Cooking Dinner? returns next month with its 20th charity dinner cooked by a lineup of the UK’s top chefs in aid of Leukaemia charity Luka.

Hosted at Holborn’s Rosewood Hotel, the event on the 5 March will see 20 chefs cooking in the same kitchen for 200 guests to raise funds for research into the causes and treatment of leukaemia and blood cancer.

Since its creation by chef Peter Gordon in 1998, Who’s Cooking Dinner? has raised over £6m for the Leuka charity.

The 200 diners in attendance are assigned to a chef’s table by random draw, where they are served exclusive dishes alongside paired wines matched by each restaurant’s sommelier.

Following dinner, guests are invited to participate in an auction, where they can bid for the experience of having the chefs cook in their own home.

“We’re looking forward to hosting Who’s Cooking Dinner? once again, this year in a spectacular new location at Rosewood London,” says Chris Corbin, chairman of the event and of the Leuka charity.

“With another outstanding line-up of the UK’s top chefs, it’s humbling to see such hard work and generosity in support of a life-changing charity and the amount of funds raised continues to achieve new heights each year”.

The line-up of chefs at this year’s event is as follows:

Adam Byatt (Trinity)

Angela Hartnett (Murano)

Ashley Palmer-Watts (Dinner by Heston Blumenthal)

Bjoern Weissgerber (Sexy Fish)

Brett Graham (The Ledbury)
