Kent's finest chefs raise thousands after Chapter One charity feast with Gary Rhodes
Chapter One played host to Kent’s finest chefs this week as they cooked their way to raising thousands for a local charity.
The restaurant’s Andy McLeish joined fellow Michelin Star holders Stephen Harris (The Sportsman), Graham Garrett (The West House), Daniel Hatton (Thackeray’s) and Tim Johnson (Apicius), to produce a seven-course menu in aid of the Nicholls Spinal Injury Foundation.
South London-born Gary Rhodes is patron of the organisation and gave a speech after dinner had been served.
Heralded as the ‘Night of the Kent Chefs’, the event, held at the Locksbottom venue on Monday evening, saw £16,000 collected for the cause.
Mr McLeish said: “The event was a huge success. It was a great experience working with such esteemed chefs in my kitchen.
“We had a lot fun and the food was outstanding, but most importantly we raised a large amount for a worthy charity. We have all spoken about doing it again next year… so watch this space.”
Visitors tucked into a local menu featuring the likes of oysters, rabbit and apples, while a silent auction also took place, with prizes including dining experiences with some of the cooks.
The foundation was set up after a past member of Mr McLeish’s kitchen brigade, Daniel Nicholls, saw his life change forever following a freak holiday accident.
