Clear your diary on 24 June, because Sauce Supper Club and well-known Staffordshire chef Matt Davies are joining forces to host an exclusive, one-off dining experience at University College Birmingham, in order to raise funds for local hospitals and specialist departments.
Matt Davies delighted the people of Staffordshire with his exquisite culinary skills for over thirty years. He began his incredible career in 1984 as a stagiaire at The Savoy in London, after previously spending eight years training under the wing of Michelin starred chef Andreas Antona of Simpsons Restaurant, Birmingham.
Prior to a life changing accident, the former Chairman and now Vice President of the British Culinary Federation was responsible for an 80-strong kitchen brigade spread across six Michelin-listed and multi-Rosette fine dining outlets in Staffordshire. Matt managed a thousand daily covers, encompassing everything from fine and modern UK and European cuisine, all the way through to gourmet burgers and classic country cooking.
“After suffering life changing trauma, I would like to thank some very special people and their corresponding charities by holding a Charity Dinner to raise much needed funds to carry on helping other people in the future,” says Matt, whose enlightened outlook on being a chef is that it is not just a profession, but rather a passion and a way of life that has you striving to be the best you can.
“I am humbled to introduce to you some of my dear friends, who have given up their personal time to produce a very special six-course Charity Dinner at the UCB Birmingham.”
This special event on Monday 24 June will bring together some of the most celebrated chefs in the country to raise money for causes that are close to Matt’s heart: Mind, UHNM Charity, Queen Elizabeth Hospital Birmingham Charity, and Hospitality Action.
Guests will be treated to six courses from Tom Brown (Cornerstone, Hackney Wick), Glynn Purnell (Purnells Restaurant), Luke Tipping (Simpsons of Edgbaston), Jonathan Howe (Lumiere Restaurant), Aktar Islam (Opheem Restaurant), and Adam Bennett (The Cross at Kenilworth) assisted by Andreas Antona (Simpsons of Edgbaston).
