Chefs for Hope are organising a Tasting Dinner in support of the local charity MIND in Somerset which will take place on 19 November 2019 at Knowle Manor.
Six outstanding chefs will be cooking an exquisite six course dinner, providing guests with a top dining experience – James Mason, Ellis Pannell, Paul Berry, Olivier Certain, John Bradley and Liam Finnegan will be supported by learners from Foxes Hotel.
All chefs are from award-winning restaurants: James Mason, former Head Chef at Kentisbury Grange, now runs his own event company, New Coast Events. Ellis Pannell is Chef Patron of the Pyne Arms in North Devon, Paul Berry the Chef Patron of The Swan in Bampton, a Top50 Gastropub, where Olivier Certain is the head chef. John Bradley is the Chef Patron of Dunkery Beacon Country Hotel, and Liam Finnegan the head chef at The Castle in Taunton.
The dinner is in aid of the charity MIND in Somerset – Chefs for Hope are hoping to raise £5,000 to set up a youth service in Minehead for children with mental health issues in West Somerset. MIND in Somerset help young people who struggle with finding enjoyment in things that used to be fun, feel isolated and lonely and that life seems a bit pointless.
Chefs for Hope was set up by Mike Griffiths, former head chef at the Farmers Arms in Combe Florey, and Elke Winzer, organiser of the Exmoor Food Fest. The objective of Chefs for Hope is to help local charities raise much needed funds.
“We are delighted that six fantastic chefs are joining us for our first Tasting Dinner in November”, said Elke Winzer. “We are grateful to all of them to give up their time to help us raise money for MIND in Somerset.”
“Many chefs struggle with mental health, and supporting young people is a matter close to our hearts”, added Mike Griffiths. “We do hope that we will exceed our target of £5000 to be able to fund more than one youth group in West Somerset.”
The dinner will be followed by an Auction of Promises – information about the auctioneer and the items to be won will soon be published!
