Night of the Kent chefs

The Five Michelin-starred chefs of Kent are cooking in the same kitchen for one night at Chapter One Restaurant

For the first time, Stephen Harris (The Sportsman), Graham Garrett (The West House), Daniel Hatton (Thackeray’s) and Tim Johnson (Apicius) will join Andy McLeish at his restaurant, Chapter One to cook a special seven-course menu.

Taking place on 17 March, the event will raise money for the Nicholls Spinal Injury Foundation, a charity for people living with paralysis caused by spinal cord injury.

The dinner will be a celebration of Kentish food and these top chefs will only use local produce on the night. Taking the meaning of ‘field to fork’ literally, all the chefs will come together before the event to hunt and fish for their dishes on the menu.

The evening will begin at 6.30pm with Champagne and canapés then each chef will cook a course.

“It’s a big deal for me to be working in the same kitchen with such talented chefs. We know each other well and eat in each others’ restaurants,” said Andy McLeish, chef patron at Chapter One.

“In many ways we’re similar – we’re all proud to have restaurants in a county that has an abundance of quality produce and this event will showcase that.”

Andy added: “The Nicholls Spinal Injury Foundation is a charity very close to my heart. Daniel Nicholls, the reason why the charity was founded, used to work for me at Chapter One and I’m happy we’ve all come together to raise money for such a worthy cause.”

● Tickets are £120 per person, inclusive of wine paired with each course. To book contact Cheryl Almond: cheryl@chaptersrestaurants.com or call the restaurant on 01689 854 848.
