At the end of October our team headed up to the star college for the big eat charity fundraising evening, raising money for the college itself. Along with chefs David Kelman from Ellenbrough Park, Matt Black and Rob Rees from the Star Bistro.
StarBistro is a joint venture between The Wiggly Worm and National Star Foundation enabling young people with disabilities to gain real life work experience in a restaurant environment, they use great local and seasonal ingredients and serve their meals from a specially designed kitchen to their customers in a purpose built restaurant.
Dom & I were in charge of sending out the canapés and starters and Helen and Hannah were helping running front of house. It was a very successful evening raising far more than expected especially with the auction at the end which Lumiere donated a tasting and matched wines prize. All in all the evening raised over £5,000 for the charity.
I would like to thank Flying Fish Seafoods & Creed Food Supplies for donating some of the ingredients and Martyn Dymott and his art group of their kind donation towards the other ingredients!
