Top chefs cook up a fundraising dinner

The idiom “too many cooks spoil the broth” might hold true in most kitchens, but not at Who’s Cooking Dinner? at the Four Seasons Park Lane on March 5. The event sees 20 of the capital’s top chefs (including Richard Corrigan, Pierre Koffmann and Marcus Wareing, pictured) team up to take part in an annual fundraiser that has raised more than £3.7m for leukaemia and blood cancer charity Leuka since its launch in 1999.

Organised by The Providores chef Peter Gordon and restaurateur Chris Corbin (one half of the duo behind London eateries The Wolseley and the newly opened Delaunay), the evening will feature chefs from the likes of Nobu, Zuma and Hix each cooking a specially created four-course menu for a table of 10, with the twist being that guests only discover during the pre-dinner reception which culinary superstar’s cuisine they will be treated to. The evening ends with an auction at which guests can bid for a chef to cook dinner for 10 at their own home.
