This year’s Chefs’ Table will see five of Brighton’s most talented chefs coming together in support of a great cause to serve a festive-themed selection of dishes in the iconic hotel’s Empress Suite, which will hold up to 120 guests.
The chefs hosting this year’s charity dinner are:
· Alan White – The Grand
· Steven Edwards – Etch
· Kenny Tutt – Pitch and Masterchef Champion 2018
· Duncan Ray – The Little Fish Market
· David Marrow – Terre a Terre
Brighton Chefs’ Table – a taste of stars
The five chefs up some of the best-known names in Brighton with each one a champion of MasterChef and Great British Menu fame. After arrival drinks, each chef will present their dish and inspiration along with wine pairing recommendations. The menu will consist of an amuse bouche, starter, plus fish, a main and dessert followed by coffee and mince pies.
During the gala dinner there will also be a charity auction, hosted by Robbie Raggio, with winnings to include an overnight stay at The Grand, along with private dining experiences with the five host chefs and many other prizes. All proceeds from the event will go towards funding support services at Royal Alexandra Children’s Hospital, where Rockinghorse helps to improve the quality of life for the most vulnerable children in Sussex.
Raising money for worthy causes
The event has raised a staggering £44,100 for local charities since its launch in 2017. Ryan Heal, CEO at Rockinghorse Children’s Charity, says:
Since the inception of the Chef’s Table event two years ago, we’ve been blown away by the generosity of the guests at the event but mostly the generosity of the incredible chefs who donate their time, staff and culinary expertise for the benefit of our charity.
Funds raised from the previous Chefs Table events have enabled us, at Rockinghorse, to continue our work at The Royal Alexandra Children’s Hospital providing them with life saving, cutting edge medical equipment and resources that they so desperately need. We are thrilled to be involved again this year for what is becoming a real “hot ticket” in town and totally unique for the city.
Andrew Mosley, General Manager at The Grand Brighton and Rockinghorse trustee, commented:
Following the success of our inaugural Chef’s Table in 2017, this year’s event was fantastic – a truly
unforgettable epicurean experience. Supporting the local community is at the heart of what we do
here at The Grand Brighton and it was wonderful to see some of Brighton’s finest chefs come
together in support of such a great cause. The funds raised will make a real difference to the Sussex
Rockinghorse is the official fundraising arm of the Royal Alexandra Children’s Hospital, with all
proceeds made from the Brighton Chefs’ Table going towards improving the quality of life for the most vulnerable
children in Sussex.
