Chefs John Williams MBE and Rob Palmer will be in Stoke-on-Trent this autumn for the Michelin Dinner 2019, raising money for the Douglas Macmillan Hospice.

Two fantastic Michelin starred chefs will prepare a 5 course tasting menu for 150 lucky guests in the stunning World of Wedgwood Tea Room at Barlaston on Monday 21 October. Coordinated by Michelin, whose UK headquarters are nearby on Campbell Road, the dinner is a fundraiser on behalf of Michelin employees’ chosen charity of the year.

Every pound raised will help Dougie Mac to continue providing priceless end of life care, free of charge, to people across North Staffordshire and Stoke-on-Trent.

Starting at 6.30pm, this special event gives Stoke-on-Trent and Staffordshire foodies the chance to enjoy a night celebrating exceptional food as well as the power of local businesses to work together to do good.

In the kitchen on 21 October will be two Michelin-starred chefs and their brigades. John Williams MBE has been executive chef at The Ritz London for the last 15 years, winning numerous industry accolades, and readers may recognise him from the TV documentary Inside the Ritz Hotel. Also soon to be seen on Channel 4’s Great Hotel Escape is Hampton Manor, where head chef Rob Palmer won his first Michelin star in 2016 at Peel’s Restaurant.

There will be some phenomenal prizes up for grabs in a charity auction on the evening too, including some practically priceless foodie experiences.

Last year, the first dinner raised £50,000 for the Donna Louise Trust. Stoke-on-Trent born chefs Niall Keating and Simon Hulstone treated diners to dishes including duck liver parfait, smoked duck and pickled cauliflower with windfall apple purée, and beef fillet with fermented lettuces, horseradish and dill.

Stoke-on-Trent foodies won’t want to miss out on this unique event. A few tickets are still available at the time of writing. At £175 per person they include a welcome drink on arrival, 5 course tasting menu and accompanying wine flight.

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).

Tickets are available to purchase here from Sauce Supper Club.
