Top chefs from across the UK are busy cooking up secret menus for an exclusive foodie fundraiser in South Wales.
Chefs’ Night Out will take place at St David’s Hotel in Cardiff Bay on 4 February 2017 in support of children’s hospice charity Tŷ Hafan.
For one night only, each table will be treated to a delicious meal cooked by one of the chefs – but the diners won’t know who is cooking for them or see their menu until service begins on the night.
Adding a special twist to this exclusive dining experience, chefs will also be offering themselves off-menu in an after-dinner auction. Attendees will bid for a chef – then whisk them away to cater for a dinner party for 10 at their home at a later date.
Hoping no-one poaches their ideas, the chefs’ menus are being kept under wraps until the evening.
The stellar line-up of chefs includes:
Hywel Jones – Lucknam Park
Stephen Terry – The Hardwick
Will Holland – Coast Saundersfoot
Mark Jordan – Ocean, Jersey
Tomos Parry – Kittie Fishers
Alistair Barsby – The Grove, Narberth
Sian Wyn Owen – River Cafe
Phil Carmichael – Berners Tavern
Juan Galvez – Marbella Club
Ludo Dieumegard – The Harbourmaster
David Kelman – Ellenborough Park
Richard Davies – Epicure
Hrishikesh Desai – Gilpin Hotel & Lake House
Andrew Birch – Fishmore Hall
Simon Padilla – Puente Romano
Tŷ Hafan is a charity close to the hearts of organisers David Loosemore and Huw Edwards, who started Chefs’ Night Out to raise funds for the children’s hospice and the vital support it provides for life-limited children and their families.
The event is extremely popular and has raised in excess of £450,000 for Tŷ Hafan since its inception in 2010. David and Huw are hoping the 2017 gala dinner will see the amount raised smash through the £500,000 barrier.
“We are very excited by our chef line up in what will be our fifth anniversary event” said David. “Given that we have such an ambitious fund raising target, it is really important that we have our best ever group of chefs to deliver some fantastic food. We will be welcoming chefs from far and wide but they all have a strong connection with Wales.”
Attendees will pay £2,500 per table to take part in the exciting dining experience, with all proceeds going to Tŷ Hafan.
